We are moving quickly through July with another successful week of activities. Many thanks to Roseanne Bourassa for organizing Ladies Bunco and the Browns, Danas and Whitehouses who hosted the Porch Party, both were well attended.
During the Porch Party our Vice President Mike Anderson reminded those gathered of the importance of the up coming Annual Meeting on the 19th of August. Please be sure that your membership has been paid so that you have the opportunity to vote on some important issues.
The results of the Sunday Softball are as follows: Team Plummer defeated Team Bertrand 10-7. Gerry Plummer hit 3 home runs for the win and Kyle Rush and Owen Dawson made outstanding catches.
After the game a good crowd was on hand to enjoy our first Ball Game Grill of the season. Thank you to Kenny Schroeder and his sister Melissa Bliss, Jim Rush and Carol and Dick Palmer for their assistance.
