By Windham Soccer Association

To all of those who participate in the Windham Soccer Association program, the WSA Executive Board would like to ask that you join us in supporting Warrant Article #17 on the ballot this March.   

Article 17 proposes raising funds to build a new multi-purpose playing field at Spruce Pond that will provide WSA members and the entire community with access to much needed field space.  Spruce Pond can accommodate a full size 11 v. 11 field that will help alleviate some of the overcrowding that all of the in town sports organizations are now facing.  

What makes this field feasible for the residents of Windham is the relatively low construction cost.  While we are mindful of the current tough economic times, the construction of this field will cost approximately 30 cents on the dollar.  The reason for this low cost is that the petitioner has to date, acquired approximately $260,000 in donations.  This donation amount does not even account for the value of the 22 acres of land that is also being donated to the Town. 

The WSA Board firmly believes that the construction of this field will result in a positive outcome for the Town and all the sports organizations, including the Windham Soccer Association.  The Town of Windham and the various sports organization will get needed field space for a fraction of the cost. 

We have an opportunity to act now to preserve this much needed green space for the Town of Windham; it is for this reason that we respectfully request you to join us on March 13th in voting yes on Warrant Article #17.

Respectfully Submitted,

Windham Soccer Association

If they want it so bad, and it's such a bargain, why doesn't the WSA pay for it?
