    Volunteers Needed: The Grille at Southern Little League

    As you probably know, Southern Little League is largely run by volunteers, so that we can keep as much of the money on the field as possible. One area that we need volunteers this year is at the "Grille At Southern". We ask that each team sign up for a 1 hour block of time at the Grille at Southern. We would like two volunteers per team each Saturday. Team parents and coaches, please ask your team to sign up for an hour block on at least one Saturday. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please contact Nick Stadel (stadel3@yahoo.com or 350-7629).

    This is only for Saturdays. Your volunteer time does NOT have to be during your child's game time, you are welcome to volunteer for any time slot that is available. We welcome parents, grandparents, and other supporters to sign up for a shift at the grill. Adults over 18 only, please.

    The grill will already be set up and ready to go, so all you have to do is make sure there are enough dogs, burgers, and onions available for people that are buying them. It's a lot of fun, and a great way to meet other Southern families and to show your support for Southern.

    Click here to sign up (updated for 2017)

    If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach Nick Stadel at 616-350-7629, or by email at stadel3@yahoo.com
