Big Dreams for Little Girls
Grant for materials to rebuild dugout and field. Our girls are playing softball on a 40 year old park. The dugouts have holes in the roofs from past years storms. We would like to replace boards where needed, and re shingle the roofs. This was started last year, but because of the cost we were only able to repair one diamond. This year our goal is the repair three more diamonds. Our mission is to aspire to be and outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high quality experience, in which every child is coached using principles of Little League, has fun playing, feels like an important part of the team, and learns life lessons that have value beyond the fields.
