New permanent lighting will be unveiled today at a Boys and Girls Club of Harrisburg athletic field in South Allison Hill, thanks to a $100,000 gaming grant awarded by the Dauphin County commissioners.

The lighting will allow the Mark & Betty Butler Field in Cal Ripken Sr. Youth Development Park to be used in twilight and evening hours, offering recreational activities to help keep teens and young adults off the streets.
