It’s hard to tell who had the most fun at the Fletcher-Johnson field opening in southeast D.C. last month – the adults or the kids.
We joined Mayor Vincent Gray as well as representatives from DC SCORES, KIPP DC and United for DC for the grand opening of the new field behind the Fletcher-Johnson Recreation Center. Without the support of these organizations, this field would not have been possible. It was truly a special day for everyone involved.
Once the field was officially opened, the kids cut loose on the turf, showing off their soccer skills in a short clinic and scrimmage.
We have no doubt that the field is going to be put to good use. Thank you to everyone who helped provide yet another safe place for children in DC to play.
