Creating Fields of Dreams for Middle Country
Officials Break Ground for New Ball Fields in Selden
Middle Country Youth Association board member Allan Sirkis, Brookhaven Town Councilman Kevin LaValle, Suffolk County Legislator Tom Muratore, Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine, and Middle Country Youth Association President Frank Ventimiglia.
On September 9, Legislator Tom Muratore (R-Ronkonkoma) joined the Town of Brookhaven in breaking ground for two new little league ball fields in Selden that will be used by the Middle Country Youth Association, among other organizations. The new ball field project, which will be completed by the spring of 2015, is the first phase of a future 24-acre athletic complex on the site. The property, purchased by Suffolk County and transferred to the Town of Brookhaven, is located behind the Grace Presbyterian Church at 425 Hawkins Road in Selden.
“I want to congratulate the County and the Town on breaking ground for this much needed family-friendly place in the community,” Legislator Tom Muratore commented.
Supervisor Romaine said, “I commend Councilman LaValle and Legislator Muratore for their commitment to making this athletic complex a reality for the families in the community. It’s another example of how the Town can work with all levels of government to provide the services that improve the quality of life for our residents.”
Councilman LaValle said, “Legislator Muratore championed this project since day one and without his support, it may never had come to fruition. I look forward to coming back in the spring to join the Middle Country Youth Association for opening day at the new ball fields.”
Thank you to Tom Muratore, Kevin Lavalle and Ed Romaine for your hard work and supporting the kids of Middle Country!
Progress in the works!
