October 21, 2013 -
City staff will present a plaque to Wess Garrod whose vision and commitment were instrumental to the realization of CaraCo Home Field regional track and field facility on Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 3 p.m.
The presentation will be held at centre field at CaraCo Home Field prior to the KASSA girl's field hockey semi-finals; the teams will be determined at the quarter finals on Monday afternoon.
"Wess Garrod's dedication to building and rallying support for a premier sports field in Kingston was exemplary," says acting director of Recreation & Leisure services, Luke Follwell. "His determination will be remembered with this plaque at CaraCo Home Field for many years to come."
CaraCo Home Field is Kingston's premier sports field located directly east of the INVISTA Centre on Fortune Crescent. This new track and field facility provides a high quality venue for school track and field meets and offers an extended season for field sports due to the artificial turf surfacing.
