Sarah Alcorn sang our National Anthem.

The Kiwanis Club of West Geauga and The Clay Eddy Foundation have formed a partnership whereby the Kiwanis Club of West Geauga has pledged $40,000 in support of the fields as an investment in the youth of our community,   The money will be paid over a five year term. 
The area will now be known as:  Clay Eddy Fields- Kiwanis Park
  In addition, the Kiwanians have purchased, constructed, and placed the aluminum bleachers, and assisted with the construction of a bridge across the gully between the parking area and the fields, and a path to the fields..

The Kiwanis Club has a goal of helping children of the worked and we start at home.

The Clay Eddy Foundation has acquired the property rights from Eddy Fruit Farm for the four acres and, through the efforts and direction of Bart Alcorn, has developed the fields for organized youth sports of T-ball, Baseball, Softball, and Soccer.

In spite of the overcast, rain and wind, it was an exciting day and hundreds of youthful players,
 their families and coaches showed up and participated in the activities.
