LETTERS: Grant recipient expresses gratitude

To the editor:

The Hillsboro Recreation Commission and I would like to thank Hillsboro Community Foundation for awarding a $1,000 grant to our Sound System Project. This project will help us provide a quality sound system for announcing Tabor softball games, Hillsboro High School softball and baseball games, and special tournaments sponsored by Hillsboro Recreation Commission.

We are pleased that the Hillsboro Community Foundation approved our grant application because we feel this validates our goal, which is to improve the quality of opportunities we offer to our area youth as well as the people who support the youth in their endeavors. The grant will help us purchase at least two quality sound systems for use during games that showcase the facilities at Memorial Field, Hillsboro Sports Complex, and the hospitality of the citizens of the city of Hillsboro.
