A special thanks to everyone who made the rededication of Maj. Charles Kelly Memorial Stadium such a great success!  
The success came about because of the dedication of the committee given the opportunity to honor Maj. Kelly on the 50th anniversary of his death, coupled with the outpouring of support from our community.
