Dear Editor and Community
I am writing this letter to voice my enthusiastic support for the new ball fields that are to be constructed in Bohn Park. There is absolutely no doubt that our children, and we as a community, are in dire need of new and better-
maintained fields. I have three children, two of whom play softball/baseball and when we travel to other cities and see how well their fields are built and maintained we can only see where we as a community are failing our children. The Parks and Recreation Department can only do so much with what we have. And they do a great job, in my opinion. When the survey went out some years ago ball fields were of utter importance then, as they are now. I encourage the Board of Trustees to develop and construct these new fields for our kids. Here in Lyons there are no swimming pools, no rec. centers, but yes, we have beautiful parks and ball fields that we should utilize to the fullest. Our kids deserve it and I encourage everyone to attend the meetings in support of our Parks and Recreation Department and our ball fields. Thank you, Lyons!
Dolores M. Vasquez, Lyons
