SENATOR BALL TO PRESENT $95,000 GRANT TO BREWSTER LITTLE LEAGUE
Brewster, N.Y. – (7/28/12) – Senator Greg Ball (R, C-Patterson), has successfully secured a $95,000 capital grant for the Brewster Little League and will host a check presentation this Sunday at Zimmer Field.
Senator Ball made a pledge to the Brewster Little League that he would work tirelessly to secure money to help rebuild the field. Today, Senator Ball is happy to announce, that as a result of a three-way agreement, funds are now available for a $95,000 capital grant for the Brewster Little League.
Senator Greg Ball and his staff will be hosting a free BBQ starting at 4:30 pm, at 5:00 pm Senator Ball will present the $95,000 grant to the Brewster Little League. Following the check presentation there will be a little league baseball game starting at 5:30 pm.
The money will be used to make much needed upgrades to Zimmer Field in Brewster. Carol Peterson, who is an organizer and the father of a player, was excited when he heard the money had been secured.
“This 95 thousand means we will be able to be doing something correct from the get go instead of piecing a project together. This will make these fields a premiere facility in Putnam County,” said Carl Peterson. “I really appreciate Senator Ball’s help securing this money. These fields will be something that the kids will enjoy for the next 20 – 30 years.
“Working with local partners, I am so happy that we were able to secure this grant for the Brewster Little League and I will support them in every way moving forward,” said Senator Greg Ball. “As long as I am in office, I will continue to deliver for Brewster and all the towns I represent and fight to bring as much of our tax money back from Albany, to home where it belongs”
