Five years ago, when Travis Field of Springs was killed in a car accident at the age of 20, a scholarship was set up in his honor.
Mr. Field was known for his athleticism, kindness, and love for East Hampton. He worked as a traffic control officer for the East Hampton Village Police Department and was a member of the Springs Fire Department and a volunteer for the Springs Youth Association. He also played for two softball teams in leagues here.
Four student-athletes are chosen each year to receive a scholarship set up in Mr. Field’s memory. To be chosen, students must demonstrate community service, respect for others, and a love for their community. Donations to the fund would be appreciated; details about how to give are available from Brian Anderson at 324-9276.
All of the proceeds from a Bracket Bash on July 28 will go to the Travis Field Memorial Scholarship Fund. The 7 to 10 p.m. event will be held at the American Legion Hall in Amagansett, where hors d’oeuvres will be served and D.J. Matty Nice will provide the music. Tickets cost $20 at the door.
