On August 25, the city of Métabetchouan-Lac-à-la-Croix inaugurated the baseball field in the Lac-à-la-Croix sector. The course has been newly renovated in red sand, which will provide better game quality.
“There is a group of citizens who took part in the repair project in 2019, and this request was immediately supported by the elected representatives,” said the city councilor. Sylvain Lavoie.
In total, the repair of this land cost more than $ 200,000 and involved many volunteers.
The inauguration took place during the ball tournament given to Bawliss, the local team.
Guillaume Duchesne, a volunteer in the production and a member of the tournament’s organizing team, invited the adult and youth leagues of MRC Lac-Saint-Jean Est to come and play on the field.
“We are ready to welcome you, and we have volunteers who are eager to get involved.”
This year, the participating baseball league allowed more than 45 young people to play baseball and ended with a friendly tournament in which 14 teams participated.
The city also points out that other projects are underway throughout its territory.
The mayor of the municipality, André Fortin, used the opportunity to talk about the construction of the indoor pool, which will be located close to the baseball field.
“These investments are examples, among other ongoing projects, that emphasize the importance that the city attaches to the quality of life of the population and the dynamics of society” André Fortin emphasized regarding the project which was valued at 4, 2 million dollars
