I am Kenny Thomason, and have lived in Greenwood my entire life. I am doing my eagle project here in Greenwood, at the park. The fencing is curling up around the base, the dugout floors are cracked, and the field generally bad shape. I will be tearing out the old fencing and concrete at the ball field, and I will be replacing them. The fund raising is in progress, and demolition will start shortly before the 4th of July weekend. If anyone would like to help or donate, you can contact me at kennythomason@ windstream.net, 402-789-2188, or PO. Box 8 Greenwood NE 68366.
