ALBION – Jeff Holler has been cooking for years at Bullard Park, bringing a grill to the site and making hamburgers, hot dogs and other food with the Masonic Lodge.

Other groups also bring grills to the park to serve food for other special events and festivals.

Holler would like to see a concession stand at the park near the football field. He pitched the idea to the Village Board last week.

The stand could also have space to store equipment for the youth football program. Right now those are kept in a resident’s garage.

Holler said the small building also could have a spot for an announcer with a PA system for the games.

Albion Mayor Angel Javier Jr. said he is open to the project but he and other board members would like to see a rendering of the building.

Holler said he would work on getting more details for the building.

“This is just the beginning stages,” he said. “We didn’t want to pour money into it if the board isn’t interested.”
