From The District 13 Major Girls Softbll Manager and Staff,
The staff would like to thank all for the tremendous support we and the girls have received during this run. Without all the support between food, drinks, buttons, pennants, collecting all the info, the junior league girls, Nick P., Thomas S. My Zach and of course the SuperFan all making the bus ride none of this could have happened.
Thank you to WLL, President Dave Hill, VP Tom Skeff, Marc Quinn Commish and all the well wishers on FaceBook and other social media outlets all were read all were appreciated!
A big thank you to our city's leaders Mayor Galvin, police and fire for their awesome sendoff. The girls got a huge kick out of this.
One more time to Lance Madden and Cory Aucoin for being THE BEST coaches a Manager could ask for and.... My final thank you to the hard working, dedicated 14 who gave us their all, Erika, Julia, Merry, Izzy, Katie, Kelly, Hailey,Emma, Lindsay, Jayme, Danielle, Kaci, Camryn and of course my daughter Kelsey. Hopefully Coach Cory and his staff can have a magical run next year as we did this.
