Baseball Fields

The City of Beresford maintains the Grave V. Nelson Memorials Fields and the "Tiny" Lawrenson Memorial Field. 

Grace V. Nelson Memorial Fields

Grace V. Nelson touched the lives of many children throughout her teaching career in both city and country schools. When Grace passed away in 2002, she left money for the City of Beresford and wanted the proceeds to be used for the enjoyment of Beresford children.

 

Cited by Grace's niece, "From four words, so simple and common, "children, church, community and country, will spring years of enjoyment for Beresford area youth."
