From Amelia Cornelius, LC Chairperson (Sept. 20, 2012)

Oneida Community Members  
The Oneida Land Commission has formally selected the name of the new nursing home and residential care building located next to the Lee McLester Elder Complex.  The name selected is the ANNA JOHN RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY CARE CENTER.
The only name submitted (by numerous individuals) for the county H recreation center and approved by the Oneida Land Commission is: CLIFFORD WEBSTER SR. BUILDING.

Names submitted for the ball field were Hilton Charles Ball Park, Dan George Field, William (Bill) Danforth Ball Diamond, Little Brother, Strong Wind, Oneida Mission Athletic Field, Doxtator-John-Smits Athletic Field, Oneida Mission Baseball Field, Oneida Nation Ball Field, Vernon Ninham Ball Field, Edwin King Sr. Ball Field and Oneida Field of Dreams.  After listening to the letters of recommendation from family members, the Land Commission second vote ended in a tie between William (Bill) Danforth Ball Diamond and the Oneida Mission Baseball Field.  As chair of the Commission I was given the vote to break the tie.  It was a difficult and challenging decision, but I broke the tie by selecting the ONEIDA MISSION BASEBALL FIELD.   

The tribe has many respected men who could have been honored by the field named after them, but I did not want to choose just one, so I selected the one that recognized that the land was restored to the Tribe by the Oneida Episcopal Church back in the 1940’s for recreational purposes.  

In closing, I, along with the Land Commissioners want to thank those who contributed to the naming of the residential care facility, the recreation center and the ball field.

Amelia Cornelius, Chair
Oneida Land Commission
