Kenny Van Sickle Memorial Baseball Field dedicated

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on the dedication of the Kenny Van Sickle Memorial Baseball Field on Saturday. The field, on Wall Street in the Village of Dryden, was a group effort:

The village donated the land west of Brecht's Towing & Service, the town raised $7,500 and New York state provided an additional $2,500 for the completed project.

Van Sickle was a sports writer and editor for the Journal for over fifty years, an active member of Dryden Kiwanis, and a coach for Kiwanis baseball.

Catholic Charities of Tompkins County is looking for volunteers to help at its Samaritan Centers including a food pantry in Dryden.
