Scoreboard Fundraising

It’s been awhile since I have updated the scoreboard fundraising so here are the donors since the last post:

  • ISP Management, my wonderful sister Pat Lau-Santee and the extended family of Lenard Moeggenborg.
  • A huge thank you to these people for helping make our fantastic new scoreboards a reality!! I have three more donors waiting in the wings and as soon as they are confirmed as paid, I will announce them.

Pie Sales to begin for Shepherd Baseball

It’s pie selling time for the Shepherd baseball Varsity and Junior Varsity players! The pie sales will help pay for players spring break trip to Florida next March. The sales also fund a majority of the program. The pies are made the first Friday and Saturday in December and can be picked up fresh at the cafeteria. Many people buy enough to freeze a few and eat them through out the year.

Blueberry pies sell for $8 each and apple pies are $8 each or 3 for $21. (Prices are subject to change.).

More information to follow. Go JAYS.
