We are honored to name our soccer field after a heroic young man who will remain a role model in our community for years to come. There will be an alumni soccer game after the dedication. The Columbia Township Fire and Police Department, along with the Brooklyn Irish Hills Chamber of Commerce, will assist us with the event. Please plan to attend this special ceremony.
