Board Positions Available
While I'm extremely proud to be working so well with many very talented and devoted new Board Members, the truth remains that more help could be used. Please consider joining us at our next Meeting Thursday, May 10th, at roughly 8:15pm at the EMW Fields. These positions remain vacant and need a volunteer. Perhaps you could fill one of these roles or even create one you'd have passion for:
Softball Commissioner-Currently softball program running smoothly with Player Agents in place, simply need a leader.
