Diamond Clean Up

Posted: November 7, 2014 in Uncategorized

Hello, everyone.

Just a reminder that we will be cleaning up the softball facility this Saturday beginning at 9:00AM.  We will be doing general clean up of the concession stand field areas and generally prepping both fields for winter.  We will also be taking down the batting cage net.  We are hoping that as many parents and players as possible are able to come and help.  If we have lots of help, the process shouldn’t take too long.  Towards the end of the clean up, we will put brats and burgers on the grill for those still around.

We are asking, if possible, for those that come to bring yard tools, gardening tools, and ladders to help with the net.

Hopefully we will see many of you on Saturday morning!

Lunch Concession Training

Posted: October 6, 2014 in Uncategorized

Hello, everyone.

If anyone is interested in being trained to volunteer for lunchroom concession duties, there will be a training session tomorrow night at 7PM in the concession stand.  To be able to volunteer, you MUST have been formally trained.  If you can’t make tomorrow nights session but are still interested in being trained you can contact Lisa Revelis at revelis@att.net to set up another time.

Every time we have a volunteer representing softball, the program makes $50 from the Big Booster Club.  So if you are able to be free during lunch and are interested in doing this, the program directly benefits.

Thanks much.
