ELKINS - A $2,000 grant from the Snowshoe Foundation will allow visiting fans a place to set during baseball games at Elkins High School.

"This has assisted with fan comfort and created a more positive atmosphere at the games played on this field," an EHS Athletic Booster spokesperson said. "It has been a great addition to a facility of which the athletes are already very proud."
