Bristol becoming a model town

A report coming out of Bristol today has us extremely pleased with the citizens of the quaint town to the east. It is a story that shows us individuals can truly make a difference in their community and with some initiative and hard work even get the ball rolling on citywide projects.
Gary Loyd and his son Matthew have taken personal time out of their lives to labor for hours on end laying a new concrete driveway to the town’s baseball field. Loyd said he isn’t doing this for profit or for recognition. To be honest, he isn’t even keeping track of the amount of money he spends and he had nothing to do with tipping the newspaper off to his work.
No, Loyd is doing it only for the betterment of Bristol’s baseball program. He simply wants to see that people’s cars aren’t torn up when they drive out to the field. A town that wants to desperately get its baseball program back on track is starting from the ground up, literally.
Along with fixing the driveway, a town hall meeting will be held Saturday to discuss ballpark maintenance, landscaping and fund raising. Also, officers will be elected to make sure progress is being made to better the baseball program.
We hope you will help support Loyd and other Bristol residents’ efforts to revitalize the baseball program this Saturday. As well as selecting officers and discussing the important issues, baked goods, hamburgers, drinks, snow cones and funnel cakes will be for sale and all proceeds benefit the program. The event kicks off at 4 p.m.
