The wall surrounding the Chisholm Sports Complex is a city treasure.  The CBA is working hard to preserve its splendor and integrity.  The work on the football field is complete, and the baseball stadium has just been finished also.  The worth of a community is its ability to maintain its beauty and preserve its history. That is why the CBA is  "Wild for the Wall"
Phase III of the Memorial Wall Restoration is planned for 2011.  It will include the wall section by the water tower which is seen as you enter Chisholm from the south.
