BALLFIELD LIGHTING

Deb Wilson proudly holds the piggy bank full of cash that Granite Bank donated to help the City of Champlin dedicate the new ballfield lighting system on one of Champlin’s many ballfields. Mayor Ryan Karasek, the Champlin City Council, and Charlie Lehn, Parks and Facilities Manager were on hand for the September 14th dedication. The new LED lights provide great lighting for the field, while reducing Champlin Parks Department’s electric bill. Deb Wilson won the piggy bank in the seventh inning of the baseball game that followed the dedication ceremony. Darkness had fallen by that time, but look at the great lighting for the photo!
