PRESIDENT'S LETTER REGARDING OPENING DAY
Hello all. We are well into the season – the weather is co-operating and the kids are having some fun.
We had a great Opening Day (see pictures) and I wanted to thank all those who were able to attend and enjoy the great day.
Many thanks to:
- Vicki Thomas, our Vice-President who organized the day,
- Michelle Poulsen, our Concession Manager, for having all the hot dogs ready to be enjoyed by the kids and the concession open for the other participants,
- Todd Allen, our Player Agent, for being our Master of Ceremonies,
- Ron Pearce, our Equipment Manager, for setting up the Bouncy Castle and P.A. system, and
- all our great VOLUNTEER PARENTS AND FAMILY!!
A very special thank you to our special guests:
- Claire Bidulka, for leading us in O Canada,
- Mattie Wilkinson (former LMBA player) for throwing the Ceremonial First Pitch (see attached article on his Little League World Series 2015), and
- Bob Brown Bear, who entertained the kids with “high five’s” and hugs. (Thanks Mike Kelly for arranging!)
For those who attended, I am sure you truly enjoyed the morning, for those who were unable to attend, we hope to see you at the ball field over the season.
