Thanks for a Great Family Day!

All Southern Little League Families,

The board would like to thank all of the volunteers and participants who helped make this year’s family day successful. Although the day was interrupted by rain, everyone pitched in to minimize the delay.

All that is great about Southern Little League was on display throughout the day. Kids of all ages playing without a care in the world, great food prepared by parents enjoying themselves, and of course some great baseball.

The lasting impression that I will have of family day ’07 is immediately after the rainstorm, everyone that remained including 20-30 kids, grabbed a rake or a shovel, got the grills fired up and started cooking, and took care of everything necessary to be ready for the all-star games. This all happened without ever being asked. It truly was an impressive sight.
Despite the rain, we were able to come very close to our financial projections for the day. Thanks to all of you for supporting the food tent, concessions, and the fun kid's activities. As a reminder, we are still selling raffle tickets. The drawing will be held this Saturday, June 9th at 3 p.m. All tickets need to be returned to Lisa Buth by Saturday morning. Anyone needing more tickets to sell please let us know. Once again, thank you to all that made family day a fun success.
