— Northside to dedicate new park on Saturday
Northside Youth League would like to thank everyone who helped with our park. If you have not seen the park, there have been major changes! With new landscaping, roofs, paint, scoreboards, playground area and a huge parking lot, it looks beautiful!
This could not have been possible without the help of some very special people! We would like to thank Mayor Greg Goodnight, Kokomo Parks Department Director John Martino, Center Township Trustee Jean Lushin for all of his continued support over the years, VFW Post 1152 for purchasing two new scoreboards and its sponsorship and support over the years, and the city workers who, with leadership of Joe Ewing and Lynn Rudolph, were able to finish the project in time.
Special thanks go out to E and B Paving for all of the help with the asphalt. The workers cut and formed the parking lot out of dirt and gravel. We are very fortunate to have such a talented work force working for the city of Kokomo.
We were in need of some help with the roofs on the minor league building. Jose Ochoa was able to send a crew out and replaced all the roofs on the buildings, and they look great! Please remember to support Ochoa Roofing.
We are blessed to have all of the work done at the park, and now that ball season is here, Clean Cut mowing is taking care of the diamonds, and they are doing great! Hats off to the great job that everyone has done to help make our park look awesome and the art work on the buildings from Jimmy Horn.
Saturday is opening day, with the bake sale starting at 10 a.m., opening ceremonies at 11 a.m. and the first pitch at noon. Games will be played all day.
