For the past 10 years our area youth have been blessed with the availability of an indoor recreation facility located in the Township building on Washington Ave in Hyde. During the winter months hundreds of area youngsters have frequented the facility, enjoying the opportunity to work on their skills and enjoy their favorite sport.
Thanks to the Lawrence Twp Recreation Board along with the support of the Lawrence Twp Supervisors anyone could enter and take advantage of the batting cages, pitcher’s mounds, etc for the small price of just one dollar.
Unfortunately, the facility may no longer be available. Realizing how important such a program is for our young people and the community in general, the Supervisors and the Rec Board are stepping up with a plan to build a new indoor facility located at the Lawrence Township Recreation Park.
While still in the planning stages, it has become obvious that a big project like this will require lots of community support. For this reason a public meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 4th at 7:30 PM in the multi-purpose room in the Clearfield County Career and Technology Center. We are hoping to have a large turnout of area baseball and softball enthusiasts.
The meeting will be informational but will also provide a opportunity to discuss ideas concerning fund raising and sources of possible corporate and private donations.
Please come armed with your ideas and opinions. It is going to take all of us working together to get it done. The importance of this project for our young people cannot be overstated.
