Message from the Supervisor re Town of Wappinger Little League:
Last Saturday, April 18, I missed my first Opening Day since becoming Town Supervisor. I want my message to the Little Leaguers to be public.
"Congratulations on another Opening Day! I’m sorry to have missed this day, but I had the chance to spend time with family, something I don’t do often enough.
"My message for opening day is to thank all parents for loving their children so much that they spend hours upon hours driving them to practices and games, day after day. Thank you for encouraging your children to grow in strength and character.
"Thank you to your executive board, your coaches and all volunteers for the hours you give to help our youngsters.
"The Town of Wappinger is proud to support Little League and all sports activities by providing the physical facilities here at Robinson Lane: our annual payments on the lighting infrastructure are better than $50,000; electricity costs $30,000 per year; our groundskeeping costs $3,000 per year. Much of this helps you! We also provide clay and marking chalk as well as our annual subsidy of $5,000. You can see how the Town supports you. We are happy to do so. Support does not come just in the form of a check!
"So congratulations once again on another season of America’s pastime: baseball! Little League does Wappinger proud. God bless you all!"
The next Town Board meeting is scheduled for Monday, April 27 @ 7:30 pm.
