Glad to see kids back ballpark

To the editor:

I simply wanted to take a moment and say how proud I was of some Tupper Lake youngsters this weekend.

While watching some of the softball action at our beautiful Municipal Park, I saw youngsters there trying to raise money toward the new youth baseball field.

While I understand that many have already donated to this extremely worthwhile community project, the total amount needed to complete the project right is still a bit short.

I hope that we can all take a lesson from the youngsters out there this weekend raising funds for their field, and perhaps make a donation to help the youth of our community and their new baseball field.

As a community we are second to none when it comes to doing projects that benefit the youth of Tupper Lake and our community as a whole.

Great job, kids, and keep up the good work because what you are doing now by getting involved in your community will only lead to your successes in the future!
