The 2013 Lefcoe Leaders Help Charles Peete Little League
The Vann H. Lefcoe Leadership Development Program is a program dedicated to identify, educate, and encourage future leaders within the City of Portsmouth. Every year the class is responsible for a community service project and this year is no different. Some past projects include; renovating the Westhaven Boys Home, beautifying the Hope House, and helping out at the H.E.R. Shelter. This year’s class set their sights on helping the Charles Peete Little League, an urban baseball league.
The Lefcoe Class decided to raise money to assist the league by renovating the clubhouse and field. They were able to clean up the field, fix up the batting cages, and restore the concession stand. The multiple weekend project was a success and SERVPRO of Portsmouth helped each weekend.
The help consisted of SERVPRO employees volunteering their time for the weekends to bring “construction expertise” to the project. SERVPRO of Portsmouth was also able to help with tools and equipment in SERVPRO trucks.
The Charles Peete League has over a dozen teams who compete regionally. The work of this spring helped give them a field and facilities on par with other better funded leagues. Great work for the community, and SERVPRO helped!
