We at Pascoag Utility District are extremely pleased to have worked with Burrillville High School in relocating an electronic scoreboard from Eccleston Field to the Gledhill soccer field on the high school property. The Gledhill field has a higher usage in terms of competitive sports such as high school soccer, where having the score visible from anywhere in the vicinity of the field is a great advantage. As can be seen in the photos below, the relocated scoreboard is much larger and more visible than the existing scoreboard at the Gledhill field (both old and new scoreboards are in the photos… the old scoreboard will be removed shortly).
The project started when school committee member Ray Trinque asked if we at Pascoag Utility might be willing to provide a little time from our operations crew together with our heavy equipment to help with the relocation of the scoreboard. PUD immediately saw the value in helping out such an important neighbor as our town school department, and we asked Bill Guertin, Assistant General Manager of Operations, to lead the effort for Pascoag. Ray put Bill in touch with Jim Woodward, Burrillville school department Facilities Director, and both of these gentleman and their staffs made this happen in a short period of time. In fact they were able to take advantage of the unseasonable weather to get this accomplished in February, which is amazing considering the conditions we had faced here in Burrillville during the past winter period.
From all of us here at Pascoag Utility District, we wish the Burrillville teams who utilize the great facilities provided by the Recreation Department a very successful 2012 season.
