Astoria School District is inviting all community members to a grand opening at 11 a.m. Saturday for Astoria High School’s new track.

A junior track meet for children ages 4-12 will be held from 11:30 to 1 p.m. with a barbeque from 11:30 to 1 p.m. A United Way Walk-a-thon is happening from 11:15 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Astoria’s track was recently resurfaced thanks to support from a November 2018 bond.

There will be a ceremonial ribbon cutting at the grand opening.

The barbeque will be hosted by members of the Astoria High School track team.

The walk-a-thon, part of a senior class project, was organized by Astoria seniors Leo Matthews and Michael Postlewait, in partnership with the United Way of Clatsop County.
