Lamont Sports Park fundraising team set to move forward

Planning for Phase 2 of three phases of Lamont Sports Park is now underway, and Saugeen Shores Council formally approved a Campaign Team to lead the efforts. The team includes community volunteers, two members of Council and staff representation.

The Lamont Sports Park Fundraising Committee will be co-chaired by Mike Myatt, Town of Saugeen Shores Vice Deputy Mayor, and Robert Stanley, Community Volunteer.

“We are fortunate to have such a supportive group of community-minded volunteers who have stepped up to the plate to assist with this fundraising campaign,” said Myatt. “We have representatives on the committee from Minor Baseball, Minor Fastball, Men’s and Ladies Slo Pitch, Men’s Fastball, and a broad range of volunteer expertise.”

Saugeen Shores Mayor Luke Charbonneau, pleased with the progress being made, says that Phase 1, including funding for four new lighted ball diamonds, is now complete and efforts are underway to raise the funds required to advance Phase 2. “I am confident our fundraising team will achieve their $1 million goal, allowing the Town to build two additional playing fields to accommodate minor baseball and minor fast-pitch at the park.”
