The James Metz Memorial Fund’s primary mission has been to provide kids of all ages the chance to experience full lives that create strong bonds with their friends and families through the sport of basketball.  Combined with the Lancaster community, the Metz family has revitalized the courts at Keysa Park.

Our secondary goal is to offer college scholarships to high school seniors who have participated in music and athletic programs while in high school.
