Clark Public Utilities: Play Ball!


When organizations invest in the communities they serve, everybody wins. Which is why Clark Public Utilities turned to the big leagues to turn the lights back on at a beloved ball park in Camas, Washington.

The Story Behind the Story

In 1972, Clark Public Utilities installed lights at Louis Bloch Park, so teams from the Camas-Washougal Babe Ruth League could play at night. Over time, the lights dimmed, and night games faded to black. The League turned to Clark PUD for help, and the utility stepped up in a big way, reaching out to community partners, and even Major League Baseball, to raise money to replace the park’s lights, bleachers, and scoreboard.

We knew this story was more than replacing lights and light poles. Through our work with the utility, we helped tell a community engagement story highlighting cooperation, collaboration, and heart. And like all good stories, this one will endure for generations to come.
