Field Dedicated in Honor of Community Leader
CLEVELAND — Dozens turned out for a special dedication on the city’s east side Sunday morning.
Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, along with other city leaders, dedicated the Lonnie Burten Recreation Field in honor of Dwayne Browder.
The field is home to Cleveland Muny Football League’s CMHA/Lonnie Burten Organization. Browder has served as the leader of the organization for 22 years.
Browder was also recognized Sunday for his leadership with the youth in local neighborhoods. He says the league helps fight a rising epidemic.
“We’re losing a battle with a lot of kids and teenagers today, and if someone doesn’t step up and help them, this thing can get even worse, and we’re not trying to let it get worse, we’re trying to get it better,” said Browder.
Brodwer says the league is one of a few in Ohio that does not charge children to play. He is hoping for some more financial support from the community.
