January 8th we will start wtih the newest edition of lights at the park. Two more addition light poles for the complex!
8/9/17 update The Ledger Article on the Lights Funding Project
LWSC got a phone call this morning from Bill Beasley the assistant County manager. The Board of County Commissioners approved $77,000 for additional lights this week. This amount will allow us to do one side of the complex. He said they really appreciated our professionalism, persistence and patience. This was a total team effort between our community and the City of Lake Wales. This could be completed by the end of this year!
Representatives are on the agenda at the next County Commission meeting 5/16/17 for funding to light the entire complex. Our request is that the County Commissioners contribute $70-77k to complex the light project.
This past Tuesday night 5/2/17 several Lake Wales Soccer Club board members and volunteers attended the Lake Wales City Commission meeting. The city did vote to approve the lights on the South fields down the middle which would shine in both directions. This is great news! Update: This will be completed this summer!

Lake Wales Soccer Club ($10,000)
