Message from Supervisor Tony LaFountain
SAVE THE DATE! We are planning a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new LAX box field at Rothfuss Park on Saturday, November 16 at 11:00 AM. Senator Rich Funke—who provided a significant grant to support construction of this wonderful facility in Penfield for all the boys and girls involved with youth lacrosse—will join us for this celebration.
Penfield Recreation and Penfield Youth Lacrosse are planning some short exhibition-play activities on the new field for all to enjoy following the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Since my last update, all the LAX box field perimeter boards have been installed and leveled; two concrete pads—one for bleachers and another for teams—are in place; the walkways around the field are paved; and cross-arms on the netting poles will be completed this week.
The construction team will begin laying turf this week, then we will complete the final grading and seeding of disturbed areas around the field. Our goal is to finish the entire project by Veterans Day if Mother Nature cooperates.
I will keep you posted with more details as we get closer to November 16.
