The CAM Youth Sports Program’s baseball/softball diamond project recently received a $2500 boost from the Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund. The project’s goals include a backstop and outfield fence improvements.

In addition, a Boy Scout working  on his Eagle Scout project is building a concession stand and bathroom for the facility. Melanie Petty, Trevor’s mother and Fund representative said “Trevor had an undeniable passion for baseball and loved kids. The Fund’s mission is to support projects and organizations that represent Trevor’s interests,” so the baseball/softball diamond project was a “Perfect fit.” 
The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund, a non-profit corporation, was founded after the 21 year old Atlantic native lost his life in a 2009 apartment fire. Since his passing, over $68,000 has been donated back to the community Trevor loved. The T-Fred Memorial Golf Tournament and Silent Auction, held annually the second Saturday in August at Atlantic’s Nishna Hills Golf Club, is the Fund’s only fundraiser.
