WALDOBORO LITTLE LEAGUE DONATES TO COMMUNITY PROJECT
Waldoboro, Maine - The Board of Directors of the Waldoboro Little League Association approved a donation of $1,500.00 to the Waldoboro Community Project. In addition, the Association pledged another $1,500.00 if the Medomak Valley Community Foundation can raise an additional $20,000 in pledges by March 31, 2006.
The Community Project is a fund raising campaign to develop the Town's recreation site behind Miller School. The first phase of the project will build an additional Little League field and a Babe Ruth League field for youth baseball. These fields will be co-located to accommodate a soccer field for the youth soccer program. In addition, this phase includes renovating Philbrook Field into an all-ages softball facility, and building a tennis court at the new recreation site.
In presenting the Association's check to the Medomak Valley Community Foundation, Little League Association President William Maxwell stated, "The Board of Directors views this donation as an investment in the future of our youth, and especially the future of our community's Little League Programs. Our pledge of an additional $1,500.00 is further evidence of our confidence in this project. We encourage all residents and business to joins us in providing the financial support needed to make the Project a reality."
President Maxwell continued, "We have reviewed the detail of the Project and strongly endorse the plans of the Medomak Valley Community Foundation. I have personally discussed the project with Foundation President John Blamey, and I feel the Foundation's Board has set reasonable goals, and developed a plan that will maximize the positive impact on the families of Waldoboro and Friendship."
In accepting the donation, President Blamey stated, "The Foundation is very grateful for the generosity of the Little League Association, and we are especially appreciative of their encouragement of our fund raising efforts."
President Blamey continued, "These are challenging times for all non-profit organizations, and to have a fellow non-profit group step-up and make a significant donation is truly heartwarming. The Board thanks the Association for their donation and for their continued support as we work to make the Community Project a reality."
