Dacotah Bank commits $55,000 to McElroy Park Field renovation project
The Jamestown Parks and Recreation project is planned to begin in the fall of 2023.
JAMESTOWN — Dacotah Bank has committed $55,000 to Jamestown Parks and Recreation Foundation to renovate playing fields at McElroy Park, according to Amy Walters, executive director, Jamestown Parks and Recreation District.
McElroy Park, located in Jamestown, is the home to youth baseball, fast-pitch softball, high school and college baseball and softball programs as well as amateur leagues. Located in the center of the state, Walters said McElroy Park is the ideal location for large-scale, high-quality tournaments for convenient access to teams throughout the state. The field renovations will consist of three phases. These phases will provide renovations to the youth complex and Jack Brown Stadium.
“Dacotah Bank is proud to provide meaningful support to the communities we serve, which has been a long-term tradition. We are excited to be part of this renovation that will serve generations to come in Jamestown,” said Casey Henderson, market president, Dacotah Bank.
The first phase of construction is planned to begin in fall of 2023. This initial phase is anticipated to include a tee ball field, a Babe Ruth field, two Cal Ripken fields and a restroom and concession building.
“Jamestown Parks and Recreation and Jaybal are grateful to organizations like Dacotah Bank that prioritize supporting needs in the communities they operate in," Walters said. "With each donation we receive, we become that much closer to our goal. We thank Dacotah Bank for making a difference in our community.”
