WJAA, community renovate local ball field

WILTON – Good things are taking place in Wilton during these challenging times. 

With schools closed and the spring sports seasons delayed, it presented a great opportunity for the WJAA to make the most out of this situation.    

With the support of local residents and businesses, the WJAA was able to rebuild the “old” t-ball field located at Florence Rideout Elementary School, 18 Tremont St., Wilton. 

The field looks amazing, officials said, as they invited residents to drive by and take a look. The kids will be excited and proud to have a beautiful new field to enjoy for many years to come, officials added. The WJAA is thankful for the support and donations that made the project possible, and would like to recognize the following residents and businesses for their donations/contributions:

• Chris Carter – Carter’s Tractor Works, 603-554-5562.

• Jim Quinn – Quinn Brothers Quarry, 603-654-9400.

• Brian Smith – N.H. Hydroseeding, 603-554-5424.

• Brian Adams – Wilton Highway Garage, 603-654-6602.
