Farley Field Volunteers Needed
By
Sharon Reiner

Farley Field, one of the town's four sports field, had to be closed early this past October due to safety reasons caused by the damage done by an infestation of grubs. It was opened to finish the season, but the field is severely damaged.

The field can be repaired properly this fall with your help (and strong backs)! If we can secure enough volunteers committed to installing new sod at Farley Field on Wednesday, November 23rd and Friday, November 25th (yes, that is Thanksgiving Weekend), the town will provide the sod. (you can build up an appetite on Wednesday, and work off your turkey on Friday)

We need 12 volunteers on the afternoon of Wednesday, November 23rd to take a crash course in laying sod; and approximately 50 volunteers to work laying the sod on Friday, November 25th.

We also need the following: straight shovels (spades), wheel barrows, rakes, and steak knives or something to cut sod. If you could lend any of these tools to the project, drop them off at the field and pick them up later that would be helpful, as well.

To make this happen, we must present a list of confirmed volunteers to the Park & Recreation Commission by its meeting November 14th or this project won't get done this fall. That leads to the possibility of Farley being closed in the spring or longer. we need anyone who can show up at the Parks & Recreation Meeting, Monday, November 14th, 7pm Town Hall, to demonstrate that the community wants this field repaired properly now. This will show how much this means to you. Please try and make the meeting.

We know this is short notice and the 23rd and 25th is a holiday weekend, but please come and help if you can and help spread the word. Confirm your availability to Sharon Reiner by return email mailto:STSHBE@aol.com or call with any questions; 295-8758 or cell, 918-4537

Please feel free to forward this to any community groups you know of. This would also be a good community service project for National Honor Society, church youth groups, confirmation classes, etc.

In the past we have been able to accomplish great things by coming together as a community - and I know this sod laying party will be another success - BUT only with your help!
