Rebuilding for the Youth of the Community

Rebuilding for the Youth of the Community


Some of you may recall my “black eye” post in January about being introduced to baseball at a young age.  I was fortunate to have parents and neighbors who took an active interest in the youth of the community.  The lessons I learned at that time were very important and instrumental in teaching me about sportsmanship and helping me to develop an “It’s only a game” attitude.In that same post, I explained how Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes has developed the Plant a Seed program to help rebuild sports fields throughout the country.  Rather than it be a pet project of some executive at the company, the power was placed in the hands of the consumer.  From January until March, people could nominate a field of their choosing and explain why their particular field deserved the attention of the Plant a Seed program.

Well that time has passed and Kellogg’s narrowed the field (pun intended) and moved on to Phase 2 – allowing the Kellogg’s community to vote on the semi-finalists.  Once a day until May 31st, you can log onto the Plant a Seed website and vote for which field you want to see rebuilt.  Although the field nearest to my community did not win, a few others here in Iowa did make the semi-finalist cut.  It only takes a minute to vote, so stop by their website, look for a field in a community that you care about and vote!
