The Modesto Rotary Club donated $25,000 to the Stanislaus Youth Soccer League to help with the construction of a 14-acre complex to serve children and adults in west and south Modesto.

The check was presented Tuesday at the club’s weekly meeting to three officials from the soccer organization, which has broken ground at the site near Bellenita Park in west Modesto. Plans are for the fields to be used by more than 1,200 children as well as adult leagues. The goal is to open the complex by April 2017.

“We are proud to continue Modesto Rotary’s support for important projects in our community,” said Pete Herrmann, the club’s president. “We are honored to join with other organizations to support this new complex. We wish the Stanislaus Youth Soccer League and its many families well as they look forward to many years of fun at a first-class facility.” Herrmann was joined by fellow Rotarian Ridge Sutter in presenting the check to Gustavo Calderon,

Jesus Perez and Angela Hernandez.
