BSA Troop 486 Eagle Scout Candidate Tyler R. Martin is spearheading, planning, organizing and leading the effort to revitalize a community youth sports icon in the City of Glendora.
Centered in the City of Glendora sits Lobb Field at Finkbiner Park; a place many youth come to play sports and enjoy the park surroundings. Lobb Field was dedicated May 2nd, 1971 by the people of Glendora in memory of John F. Lobb. Since its dedication, Lobb Field has given happiness to many of the cities youth and adult residents, but time has taken its toll on the community icon and repairs are badly needed. Recognizing the state of disrepair Lobb Field is in, Tyler R. Martin has set out on an ambitious goal to give back to the community, and to bring back the visual aesthetics, safety and community pride Lobb Field deserves.
The project will focus on removing and replacing sagging and distorted chain-link fence, rotten deformed timber, and disintegrating rubber matting. Most of the funds and materials needed to complete this project have been secured through donations by generous sponsors, however an outstanding balance of $1,350 is required to purchase final materials. These funds MUST be obtained by June 24th, 2017 or the project will be cancelled.
Your generosity is very much appreciated! Thank you in advance for your consideration. I am incredibly grateful!
