Pete Lavoie Little League Diamonds

“Field of Continuing Dreams Project”

In 1962, the Paris Lions Club with support from the municipality built the Pete Lavoie Little League Diamonds and indeed they did come... and come...and come... and…they keep coming! Fifty-four years of heavy use, increasing demand as well the desire to make the wonderful game of softball accessible to more children within our community means we must find a way to renovate the ball field.

This project is part of the Lions Park, Community Miracles Project started by the Lions Club of Paris in 2009.  Since that time accessible playgrounds and pathways have been installed and the Walter Williams Amphitheatre was constructed.

The Paris Youth Softball Association has seen increasing registration for a decade and over the last 5 years it has risen some 40%. For over a half a century this facility has served as a ‘Field of Dreams’ for generations of ball players. The Pete Lavoie Little League Diamonds “Field of Continuing Dreams” project will allow the youth in our community to continue to dream and dream big. Paris Youth Softball Association, Lions Club of Paris the County of Brant are working collaboratively on a plan to see the Pete Lavoie Ball Diamonds renovated to ensure ball can be enjoyed by residents for decades to come.   The County of Brant retained Stantec Consulting  in June to prepare a concept plan and tender documents for ball diamond renovations planned to begin in August 2017.   A draft plan is available for comment on the County website and Facebook pages.

The Project Scope includes;

1.    Replace, regrade, reposition and expand the ball fields allowing better access for persons of all abilities both as athletes and spectators.

2.    Replace the current dugouts, player benches, spectator seating and fencing allowing for expanded use and accessibility.

3.    Install brighter, energy efficient on field lighting.

4.    Build an accessible Field House with a universal washroom, concession and storage.

5.    Expand parking and walkway facilities to accommodate greater volumes of vehicles and families.

6.    Construct an equipment maintenance building for grooming equipment and softball equipment storage

 

The “Field of Continuing Dreams” project budget is estimated at $750,000 for the field renovation and $250,000 for the field house and equipment storage buildings. We built it once and they came – with your help we can build it again so more can come, can grow, can develop and contribute.

The project stakeholders have formed an organizing Committee and are looking for additional volunteers to assist with fundraising efforts.  If you would like to help contact:  Joyce Clement at 519-442-3216 or mjclement@silomail.com

 

The Lions Club has formed a strategic alliance with the Paris Parks Foundation, a local charitable organization that will manage funds raised towards this project.  

Grants, corporate donations and personal donations can be directed to;

Paris Parks Foundation.   PO Box 123 Paris, ON N3L 3E7

The County of Brant, 66 Grand River St. N., Paris, ON   N3P 1T3

Charitable tax receipts will be issued through either organization.
