Ocean Point Column
By Maryellen Bertrand
The holiday weekend was a busy one at the Point and officially kicked off with the Horribles Parade, races for the kids and the first of two softball games.
The first softball of the season was played Saturday with Team Yerrall defeating Team Bertrand 4-1. Michael Slayton knocked out a home run for the winning team.
Thanks to Michael we now have a new supply of gloves, so thank you Michael.
Sunday’s game found the Yerrall once again victorious by a score of 6-3. Gerry Plummer hit a home run and there were outstanding plays made by Joe and Danny Shea.
The Chicken Barbecue was well attended with a sellout crowd as we were all treated to delicious chicken prepared by the pit crew. Thank you to all who volunteered to make this annual event a huge success.
