Nassau County Legislators Steve Rhoads and Rose Marie Walker joined with Seaford School District Officials to deliver a check of $247,000 in Capital Funds, which the Legislator obtained through the Community Revitalization Program (CRP).
The money will go to renovating the baseball fields and installing a walking path at Seaford Harbor School, commence a playground paving project at Seaford Manor School, and install varsity and junior varsity dugouts, and upgrade the snack shack at Seaford High School.
“One of the most important investments we can make is in our kids,” Legislator Steve Rhoads said. “Fighting for County dollars to provide projects that enhance our schools, parks and open spaces have always been a priority that will pay dividends to residents of all ages. I’m happy I was able to partner with Legislator Rose Walker in delivering for our Seaford community.”
"The Harbor PTA is excited to see the field and the walking path come to fruition,” Shannon Breslin Conaty, President of the Seaford Harbor School PTA said. “In 2019, the PTA hosted our annual Color Run and raised $10,000 towards the effort. A huge "thank you" to the community and to Legislators Steve Rhoads and Rose Walker for "knocking it out of the park" and making the Little League field and walking path at the Harbor a reality!"
"The Seaford Booster Club and Seaford families have been waiting years for a new "Snack Shack" at the high school and even donated $5,000 to the District last year to help make it happen,” Christine Del Preste, President of the Seaford Booster Club said. “We are so grateful to Legislators Rose Walker and Steve Rhoads for coming through for the Seaford community and for our kids. We can't wait to see the new baseball dugouts and show our Seaford Pride from our new Snack Shack!"
"We at the Seaford Little League are so happy for the Harbor ballfield to get started,” T.J. Koerner, President of the Seaford Little League said. “It's going to help our program and our players in tremendous ways. We can't thank Legislators Steve Rhoads and Rose Walker enough for their continued support of our kids.
"The Seaford Board of Education wishes to thank Nassau County, and especially Legislators Steve Rhoads and Rose Walker for their assistance in securing this grant,” Bruce A. Kahn, President of the Seaford School District Board of Education said “The agreement will enable us to upgrade our facilities, benefiting our students with an enhanced school experience."
