Grant to help finish ballfield project
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The West Virginia Development Office last week announced a $5,000 grant to help pay off a $50,000 project at Charlotte Prather Park in Martinsburg.
That means the five members of the board of directors of the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Girls Softball League will breathe a little easier. League president Mary Kackley said Monday the directors had signed a personal loan to get the project completed.
"We tore everything down and started from scratch," Kackley said. The end result was three new softball fields with lights, a T-ball field and a concession stand with locker room, storage, office and restroom facilities.
