Letter to SVMFL Families & Coaches re: Fieldhouse Flooding
***PICTURES ARE IN PICTURES SECTION UNDER SVMFL FLOOD 2015***
Dear SVMFL Families & Coaches,
The purpose of this email/letter is to let everyone know that our Fieldhouse, Kitchen & Equipment room was recently destroyed. We suffered severe water damage/flooding (due to a broken pipe) in the concession stand sometime during the week of 2/16/15. The total value of the items that were deemed either a total loss or are in need of serious repairs is in excess of over $110,000 [one hundred-ten thousand dollars].
We have been working closely with our Insurance Company and the Town of Southington to itemize, replace/repair & clean all of the items that were in our facilities at the time of this disaster. We are anxious to put this painful experience behind us and get back into our Field House by April/May. Hopefully we will have everything restored back to where it was prior to this incident to prepare for our 2015 season.
As it stands right now we are looking at a 2 ½ - 3 month timeframe to have everything back in working order. This is going to be a time-consuming process for the contractors to complete a daunting list of items ranging from demolition, cleaning, sanitizing, washing, replacing, building/new construction, electrical/plumbing, heating/AC, etc.
We will be posting pictures on our website http://svmfl.org/ over the next several days to show the extent of the damage that has occurred so everyone can understand the severity of this project that has only just begun.
With all of the above being said SVMFL will be hosting our 1st Annual Chili Cook-Off Fundraising Event on 3/29/15 from 12-5 p.m. at the Polish Falcons Club-33 Knowles Avenue, Plantsville, CT 06479.
I would like to personally Thank all of our SVMFL Families & Coaches in advance of your support of this event.
We will be sending out more information on the specifics of our fundraiser over the next few days, posting flyers throughout town and relying on our families, friends & neighbors to help us raise some much needed money for our league.
We would love to see full participation by all teams, coaches, players, families & friends.
