The Nation Municipality officially opened the second ball diamond in Rodolphe Latreille Park on Saturday, June 23rd, 2018, as part of the Limoges Community Day activities.
Owing to a contribution of $35,700 from the Federal Agency for Economic Development for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP 150), and $18,500 in donations from the Limoges Citizens Committee, Limoges 3 Pitch Baseball League and Limoges Recreation Committee, fans and players will have an improved facility to enjoy for many seasons to come.
“This is a great example of what can be accomplished when a community comes together to improve the recreation facilities in their neighborhood,” said Mayor François St-Amour. “Thanks to all the individuals who worked and contributed to this project and for the much appreciated support from FedDev Ontario.”
FedDev Ontario funding was used to install lights, build covered dugouts and replace the infield with sand and stone dust. The project was an initiative from the Limoges 3 Pitch Baseball League which currently has around 170 youth registered in their baseball and T-ball programs.
