On Sunday August 8, a beautiful summer day, a celebration was held to honor two young men who lost their lives too soon: Trey Arsenault & DJ Bruenig.  DJ's brother Derrick began a fund to help Trey's family. So many generous people gave so much, that he donated a portions of those funds to help rehab the basketball courts at the Cornelia Warrant Sports Complex where Trey loved to play.  Sadly, Derrick lost his brother to a tragic accident in February of this year. Trey and DJ were best friends and so the renovation of the courts now honors both young men.
The City and many local groups like Kiwanis and Rotary have also provided support for this project. The courts are now paved.  Soon, drainage work will be completed along with the addition of lights, landscaping and amenities like a bike rack and fencing.   We expect that there will be opportunities for some hands-on work by volunteer groups to finish this wonderful community project.
We were pleased the District Governor Marge Barker joined a few Westbrook-Gorham Rotarians at this celebration.
