The Kiwanis Club of Lafayette Foundation presented Charles Dawson, Director of Operations for GeoSurfaces, with a check for $75,000 to be used towards new lighting equipment for the LCG Public Works/Parks and Recreation turf installation project currently under construction at Clark Field. The new lighting equipment will provide over 4 times the brightness of the old equipment at approximately 1/10 the electrical cost.
According to Greg Gautreaux, Athletic Programs & Maintenance Manager of LCG Parks and Recreation “The impact of a new turf surface combined with the new lighting system made possible by the Kiwanis Club of Lafayette Foundation will turn Clark Field into a brand new state-of-the art facility for youth football, youth soccer, youth softball and our handicapped program. I am proud to have yet another Public Private Partnership with Kiwanis of Lafayette as we did for Parc Independence.”
