Glaslyn ball diamond receives $10,000 boost from ADAMA

‘All in on your stomping grounds’ program funds improvements.
Glaslyn Recreation Board members are happy to accept a $10,000 cheque from ADAMA Canada for improvements to their ball diamonds.

GLASLYN — An April media release highlights a donation from ADAMA benefitting the Glaslyn ball diamonds as part of the “All in on your stomping grounds,” a new initiative to help fund community projects across the country,.

The money is earmarked for various improvements that will include a new concession booth, equipment storage facility, portable pitching machine as well as going towards new fences and washrooms.

The community of Glaslyn has seen an increase in children under the age of 11 playing ball. This funding to help with improvements will create a better equipped ball park that will meet the growing needs of their ball programs, as well as encourage more children to play ball in the community.

The media release included this statement, “We could tell how important it was for ADAMA to support the Glaslyn Recreation Board on this project,” said Cornie Thiessen, general manager for ADAMA Canada. “Initiatives like this are the reason we wanted to create All in On Your Stomping Grounds, and we’re looking forward to using the fund to continue to help improve communities all over Canada.”

ADAMA Canada has been supplying the Canadian agricultural community with crop protection products for more than a decade. ADAMA is the seventh largest crop protection company globally with sales in 100 countries and has the largest portfolio of any company with over 270 active ingredients.
