Field of Dreams: grateful for support; here's what's next | Letters

On behalf of the Friday Harbor Athletic Association and the 80-plus volunteers that helped organize and operate the Fields of Dreams Fundraiser, we would like to say "Thank You" for your overwhelming attendance and support.

With your help, we raised over $90,000 that will significantly contribute to our phase one goal of opening the first multi-use field and having the San Juan Island Community Fields facilities open to the public. To achieve this goal, we are focusing on the following:

Closure of the remaining (conditional-use permit) requirement: perimeter fencing, access sidewalks to the complex, and the completion of the main services building which includes restrooms and concessions.

Installation of irrigation systems and the hydro seeding of the multipurpose field.

Grand Opening of the park upon completion of the first multipurpose play field.

We invite you to come down and see how far things have come or you can also get progress reports online at www.sanjuanfields.com.

Again, thank you for your continued support and we hope to have the first field hydro-seeded within the next couple months. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the many volunteers that made this fundraiser a success.
