Well done Bundy, Scott, Troy and everyone else involved in supporting the Ontario Amateur Softball Association offering its pre-season Springboard Program Lockwood Field, Westport today. The clinics offered fun skills and drills to players in two age groups: 8 to 12 and 13 to 16. The younger group had approx 28 players this morning and there looked to be around 60 involved this afternoon. Players were doing drills to learn and practice the basic fundamentals of the game of fastball: Catching and Fielding, Throwing, Hitting. There is also a pitching session taught by Softball Ontario’s CANpitch instructors. Yes, right here in your Village. What a great event!
On Friday, May 17, the Honourable Monte McNaughton, Minister of Infrastructure for the province, announced a $71 million financial commitment by the Provincial Government to improve cell coverage in Eastern Ontario. The Eastern Ontario Wardens Caucus has made this its highest priority for the past two years. Special thank you to our own MPP Steve Clark, whose support for this project has remained strong.
FINALLY … It is warm enough to get rakes and brooms out to give our village a spring cleaning. If you have some free time tomorrow morning, please join us at Town Hall at 9:00 where you will be given a safety vest, garbage bags and work assignment. Oh right! there will be coffee and doughnuts at Town Hall as well. The morning wraps up by noon with pizza at the Spring. Please bring your rakes, brooms, gloves and wear a hat.
Hope to see you tomorrow.
