To The Daily Sun,
Following the successful creation of the first new athletic field at the Gilford Meadows property in 2014, it was immediately put to use as a safe and much-needed open space for our young athletes to prepare for their respective sports in 2015. That field was prepared professionally and with great care to protect the health and well-being of our student-athletes and their families.
Because of the generosity and tireless efforts provided by those recognized below, a new, much larger field was created this year for the use and enjoyment of the youth and families from Gilford and Gilmanton. Work on the second new playing field began in August 2015 and was completed in November. This adds yet another jewel to this outstanding school district complex that continues to grow and expand.
The Meadows Committee has long held a vision for the Meadows property to serve as a unique academic and athletic complex, a destination for young athletes to play and learn, and a long-term asset to the school district. Its development has always been viewed as a facility that would encourage the growth and development of body, mind and spirit for those who use it. As a result of the unselfish efforts of those below, that vision is now becoming a reality.
The Meadows Committee would especially like to recognize the following individuals and companies for their contributions:
— Andy Bartlett, project manager, Mas-Con Corporation.
— Norm Harris, Gilford Well Company Inc.
— Christian Zimmerman, Pike Industries Inc.
— Andy Howe, Beans & Greens Farm Stand.
— Hayden McLaughlin, Belknap Landscape Inc.
The Meadows Committee
Timothy W. Drew, Chairman
