On the weekend of May 15-16, Charlie Neth and Bob Coon from the Department of Natural Resources donated their time and Vern Morris and Henry Ranger drove tractors. Ted Corey also had a crew from the Corrections Center working. Don Johnson and Merv Settle are the organizers of the project. The weather kept many away, but several Little Leaguers and their parents helped clean up the area. The south end of the cleared area still needs to be smoothed. Drawings have been approved by the MCRA board for a concessions stand and lavatory facility. The Association is pleased with the way in which things are progressing and hope to have the three fields ready for play next spring. The area is to be used for all kinds of recreation for all ages. Softball, Little League baseball, Little League football, picnicking and jogging are just a few of the activities people will be able to take part in and watch.
