THE PATCH: YORKTOWN LITTLE LEAGUE RECEIVES $150,000 GRANT
The Yorktown Little League has received a $150,000 capital grant, the check for which was presented by Senator Greg Ball Tuesday night at Yorktown Town Hall.
“There are a lot of fields in town that will be revamped with this money,” Yorktown Athletic Club president Rich Campanaro said. “The Yorktown Athletic Club supports anything that has to do with kids and athletics.”
The money, which was a result of a three-way agreement between the governor, Senate and Assembly, will go toward projects such as the renovation of a 90-foot baseball field on Route 202 and the in-line skating rink at Shrub Oak Park.
Ball said he was happy the town has received the grant money, which would help the town make some needed renovations at multiple fields across Yorktown.
Town board members thanked Ball for having worked with them on securing the grant.
“This money will be vital to making field upgrades and continuing the great youth programs we have here in Yorktown,” councilman Terrence Murphy said.
Yorktown councilman Nick Bianco also echoed the sentiments that the money will benefit the children of Yorktown and it would help the town keep its sports programs alive. (ARTICLE)
