The Lakeland Soccer Field renovation is almost completed, with the final sod being installed in time for a good grass field by soccer season. Renovations included leveling of the fields and installation of sod.
We especially thank Bobby Winstead of Winstead Turf Farms for donation of the sod for the soccer fields; Chuck Singer of Hard Four Company for installing the sod at a reduced price and Nanette Smith, Lakeland Administrative Coordinator for facilitating donation of the sod and arranging for installation of the sod.
Winstead Turf Farms held a Trade Show at an opportune time, and our thanks to Winstead Turf Farms for donating the sod and assisting in finding a qualified company to install the sod.
NEW SOCCER AND BASEBALL FIELDS: The Lakeland Board of Commissioners recently approved plans for construction of new soccer fields and baseball fields. We expect the administrative matters to be completed by late this fall and hopefully construction can begin by next Spring.
LAKELAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AIR CONDITIONING: Additional recreational opportunities will also be available when the Lakeland Elementary School gym is air-conditioned. The City of Lakeland and the Shelby County Schools have an agreement which allows the City to use the gym for recreational programs. Of course, this is subject to the needs of the School System, but this will allow more late Spring and Summer City recreational programs in the gym.
