I had the distinct pleasure to watch my son, Eddie III, play in a home soccer game under the lights on "Wolverine Field” on his 18th birthday. What a deal! The new athletic field looks incredible.
My compliments to the current administration for building a jewel that
performs. On top of it, the
budget for the field was 25 percent less than the previous administration's budget for the field project ($3.1 million vs. $4.1 million) and then it
came in $75,000 under budget, to top it off.
This past Wednesday, the soccer team played its third game against Brookfield, again under the lights. A parent from the competing team told me how impressed he was with the field and wished his town had such facilities. I recommended that he contact First Selectman George Temple and the Building/Selection Committee.
A special thanks to Board of Selectmen (George Temple, Jeff Haney and Dave McKane) for creating such a venue for our kids to compete on.
