Bronson to give BYL help

-A A +A

BRONSON - At Bronson Town Council's July meeting, Berlon Weeks made a motion to free up close to $6,000 in the budget for the installation of a new irrigation system for the soccer fields at the newly named Bo Diddley Park.

The next morning, Weeks went out to the fields to have a look-see.

He realized that the Bronson Youth League, which uses the park year-round, has more pressing needs.

"The baseball fields need a sprinkler system," he said. "Fencing needs to be repaired. The tennis courts need work. They need an ice machine."

Weeks was so moved, he rescinded his motion in a letter to lawyer Stephen Warm and council members.

"The sprinkler system they have at the soccer fields is adequate," he said. "There are more important things."

Garry Mitchell, president of the BYL, agreed with Weeks. He said any improvements to youth sports facilities at Bo Diddley Park should go through the top - or him.

Mitchell also asked for more public involvement in youth sports.

"We have to do more for the young people of Bronson," he said. "Go out and watch games. Support the kids. They are our future."
