On Sunday the Vashon Park District held a ribbon cutting ceremony at its partially completed fields complex by the Harbor School. After parks commissioner Joe Wald and some kids cut the ribbon, the field then opened to play for the youngest members of Vashon’s soccer club.

“There have been challenges along the way, but I have to say, the blue skies have opened up,” a smiling park district commissioner David Hackett told the gathering.

Many of the young players, their parents and coaches were pleased by the soft and level expanse of green grass.

“I think it looks fantastic,” said Kevin Wing, who oversees the U8 and U10 teams. “The project’s half complete. Let’s finish the deal.”
