In 2008. the building of a new Clubhouse began. The new Clubhouse foundation sits abandoned and the existing 1948 clubhouse remains in disrepair, lacks adequate changing facilities for male athletes and provides no accommodations for female athletes. Our male athletes change in storage containers at the Stadium. The Visitor stands have warped through the years. The bleachers are wooden and metal and are in need of replacing. The fields present safety concerns and have limited usability. Due to years of compacting, the ground presents challenges for growing grass. During dry heat, the fields become a dustbowl and during rainy, wet weather, the fields become a mud bowl. Our marching band, athletes, coaches and recreational events are unable to use the fields when fields are saturated. This effects the overall usability of the fields. The fencing surrounding the Stadium is in need replacing. Looking at the fence, you can see the remains of barb wire arms that once held barb wire. The barb wire has long been removed, but the structure that secured it remains. The Stadium is owned by the City of Methuen. The City and its Elected Officials need to invest in City property by making a capital investment and budget for the renovations. Six years have past since the former City administration began new Clubhouse construction; however, due to lack of funds, the project was abandoned. The City needs to commit dollars to the Stadium renovation and not expect the project will be funded by only grants and private donations. renovations need to be a collaborative funding effort. Please consider signing and sharing the petition with your friends, family and neighbors. Thank you if you have already supported, signed, and shared the petition. Every signature counts.

I'm a Calibration Technician in a small business in Boston focusing on energy conservation, air quality safety and energy efficiency. I'm not easily offended. I speak my mind, and love to laugh. I don't sugarcoat or beat around the bush, though I have a lot of patience and think I'm pretty laid back. I'm a mom to two brilliant and athletic daughters, and have a Firefighter husband. He and I are both Army vets, though he's a bit more of a vet than me.
I try to post public fairly often, but have more posts that are tailored to people based off of how they have interacted with me in the past. I do more commenting on other peoples posts, but I do create and share content of my own occasionally. My posts will run from politics, current events, things about my kids, things about the Army, things about veterans services, my dogs, things I found funny, things that made me think, things about video games, things about tech, things about the prison system, things about fitness and diet, things about Crossfit and whatever else happened to be on my mind that day.
