Fallsburg baseball fields get dugouts

Contributed Story
LIBERTY — August 3, 2010 — After a year of planning the Fallsburg Central School District has four dugouts for their baseball fields, thanks to the efforts of the Construction Technology class at Sullivan County BOCES.
Tim Bult, athletic director for the Fallsburg CSD was the person who contacted William Drasher, construction technology teacher at BOCES to ask for help – a request that BOCES was glad to lend a helping hand.
Not only did the students build the dugouts, they also drafted the plans and worked with Mr. Bult to make sure the district was getting exactly what they were looking for. The class completed the dugouts this past spring, as a community service project for the Fallsburg CSD.
Five of the students who helped with the project were from Fallsburg: Jason Helm, Jonathan Quinlan, Steven Teri, Dylan Vazquez and Joseph Smith.
The other students who helped with the project were Charles Crespo, Livingston Manor; Michael DiGirolamo, Monticello; Jesse Durant, Sullivan West; Angel Ferrer, Monticello; Sean Gadsden, Monticello; Heriberto Hernandez, Monticello; Brandan Laymon, Monticello; Anthony Maltese, Liberty; Robert Mann, Monticello; Jason Moss, Monticello; Michael Snowden, Monticello; Chris Strysko, Liberty; Ramzi Abdelrahim, Liberty; Robert Dudek, Tri-Valley; Christian Garcia, Liberty; Robert Johnson, Monticello; Patrick McDaniel, Sullivan West; Walter Schoonmaker, Monticello; and Bryan Telesky, Monticello.
The Board of Education and Mr. Bult presented a plaque of appreciation to the Steven Teri, William Drasher, and Denise Sullivan, Director of Career & Technical Education at BOCES at the June board meeting. Mr. Bult also surprised the class with pizza and donuts to show his appreciation of their efforts. The dugouts will be used for sporting events throughout the year.
