Louisiana Delta Field of Dreams


You're invited to participate in the Louisiana Delta Field of Dreams.  This community wide event will be held on August 8th, 2014, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, at the Walking Path and Gazebo beside the East CarrollParish Hospital.

Uncle Si Robertsonfrom A&E'sDuck Dynasty, his daughter-in-law Marsha Robertson, and Mountain Manwill be our town's special guests, along with Pastor Jonathan Wiggins.

Pastor Wigginsissenior pastor of Resurrection Fellowship in Loveland, CO. For some time, members of Resurrection Fellowship have been making information gathering and service trips to Lake Providence, each personinvesting in our area at his or her own expense. They don't see their service as charity. They have a God-given love for our town and a desire to shape eternity.

This summer, together with people from our area, Resurrection Fellowship will begin work on the largest and most crucial piece of this mission to build unity and foster hope in Lake Providence. At an estimated cost of $800,000.00, our current little league baseball field with its deteriorating field, benches, bathrooms, and concession stand will be transformed into a state of the art complex. The brand new Eugene Haley Baseball Complex will be a jewel in our small town.Byron Grams, a new resident to Lake Providence, transplanted from Loveland and currently on staff with Resurrection Fellowship will be maintaining the three-field complex upon it's completion.


For many of our kids, and grandkids, playing at a park of this quality will be like living out a dream, hence the name chosen for this event,Louisiana Delta Field of Dreams.Thisfestival is designed to spread awareness of the new baseball complex and to help raise financial assistance. WhileResurrection Fellowship is committed to funding the renovation, our hope is that this evening of fun and fellowship will allow Lake Providence residents the opportunity to be invested and involved from the ground up.Let's step up to the plate!

Special thanks to Resurrection Fellowship, for handling the power, sound, and lighting for the entertainment stage.

The festival is also grateful for the support of Sheriff Wydette Williams and his office. They'll be serving hotdogs and hamburgers during the event with all profits going to the ball field project. The Sheriff's office also has our gratitude for agreeing to assist with crowd control and parking.
