Our club held its 9th annual Special Olympics Softball tournament in Burlington. Special Olympics teams sponsored by seven Rotary Clubs in our District competed in this day long event.


Shown above is our Burlington Pride team which our club has been proud to sponsor along with a Special Olympics basketball team which competes with other Rotary Clubs' sponsored teams during the basketball season.


Our club member Al Fay brought his classic fire engine to this event. Shown above are some of our club members  and helpers who spent most of the day making this event an outstanding success. Club President John Tuccinardi is in the front row wearing his red Burlington Pride team shirt.

Our Club provided food and drinks for all the teams attending this event, with much appreciated donations from businesses in the area. Shown above are Rotarians who worked the barbecue grill cooking burgers and hot dogs for the Special Olympians and their families.
