Sen. Lesser, Rep. Puppolo Announce 2019 Funding for Minnechaug Turf Resurfacing
WILBRAHAM — Senator Eric P. Lesser, Representative Angelo J. Puppolo, Jr., and local town and school officials visited Minnechaug Regional High School Thursday to announce $50,000 in funds secured in the state’s 2019 budget to resurface Minnechaug’s athletic field. “This project was identified by the town as one of its priorities, and I’m glad we could work together to secure the necessary funds to make it happen. This state funding will supplement the ongoing efforts by the School Department and Town as they work to ensure that both the school community and broader community have access to a well-maintained playing surface,” said Sen. Lesser.
“This is another great investment by the Commonwealth, not only for the Town of Wilbraham, but especially for youth sports and continued improvements to Minnechaug Regional High School. I was pleased to support this funding,” said Rep. Puppolo.
The resurfaced turf field will replace the existing field. The state funding will be in addition to an appropriation made by the Town of Wilbraham at its annual Town Meeting earlier this year.
