Pittsville Youth Baseball receives $10K donation
For the Hub City Times
PITTSVILLE – Forward Bank has donated $10,000 to the Pittsville Youth Baseball program in support of the field improvement and expansion project.
The baseball fields that the program currently uses are in need of new dugouts, lights, fencing, bleachers, and announcer’s booth.
Through additional support from businesses and individuals in the community, it is expected that the project will begin Aug. 1 and should be completed in the summer of 2023.
“What started as a hope for getting lights for the field has now evolved into a full development project that the community can be very proud of,” commented William Buettner, Pittsville Youth Baseball spokesperson. “Partners like Forward are helping make it possible for our venue to impact the lives of Pittsville youth and help us host more youth tournaments locally.”
“Baseball fields in Wisconsin are often a centerpiece of communities,” stated Bill Sennholz, CEO of Forward Bank. “America’s past time brings families together, gets young people active and outside, and teaches lifelong lessons of teamwork. We’re proud to join with others in Pittsville as a group of coaches and parents make this project happen.”
