A huge thank you to all that showed up for Field Day last weekend, making it an overwhelming success. All of the fields were lined by early afternoon because of the great parent turnout, leaving only some finishing work for our SECOND FIELD DAY, which will take place September 3rd at 9:00 am.
The second Field Day is needed to ready both Glenn Hall and Caleb Greenwood with final lining touches and field prep for the opening of the season. If you missed last weekend and would like to help, please visit here.
