White Brothers, Lane Construction to Donate Playing Fields

It wasn't long after Mike and Tim White started buying up property in 2004 for a quarry off Small Hardy Road that they started talking about donating land for athletic fields there. As kids growing up on Duck Pond Road, the brothers--former owners of White Bros. Construction--knew firsthand about the lack of recreational space in the northern end of the city.
The multipurpose fields will probably be ready to use in 2013. Maria Dorn, Westbrook's community services director, said there's an ever-increasing demand for soccer fields in the city. "Everybody's on them all the time," she said. Priority for playing time on the fields will go to the Westbrook Soccer League, which serves 300 kids from age 3 to 13 years old.
