An effort to install new net backstops at softball and baseball diamonds at Riverside Park illustrates the value of working together, Iola Mayor Jon Wells said.
Wells is also a member of the Iola Elks Lodge 569, which has a goal of keeping children active and healthy, he said.
As such, the local group gave $1,500 for the backstops at the park.
