Paul “Bud” Billiard of the Friends of Brooke Hills Park, left, accepted a $15,000 donation from Charles Bell of Main Street Bank for the redevelopment of the park’s basketball court to serve several sports. Bell, the president of the locally owned bank’s Wellsburg branch, said, “We are proud to donate to Brooke Hills Park. It is a wonderful part of our community and we understand the importance of continuing our support of the upgrades to it.” Billiard said he’s continuing to seek donations for the sportsplex project, which will involve repaving the court and adding fencing, lighting and equipment for tennis, badminton and volleyball. — Warren Scott
