CANDIA YOUTH ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
CYAA would like to thank all the residents and volunteers
for another successful year! Your help has made a facility
that all the residents in the Town of Candia can be proud
your donations and volunteerism, we have been able to make
improvements in your facility. We have added indoor locker
rooms and bathrooms. We have made bleachers that run all
the way down the basketball court. We have done more paving
outside and installed some outside lighting. We have made
many other improvements to your facility. Our baseball and
soccer fields are looking really good for the upcoming outdoor
seasons. And, we have had a record number of sign-ups in
youth and adult activities, and in some cases, they have
doubled from last year.Through your volunteer efforts and
the CYAA, the Town of Candia is a better place to live.
Numerous parks and recreational areas dot the town and through
careful planning, new features like trails are being added
constantly to enhance the enjoyment of the spectacular landscape
that is Candia!
