League needs volunteers

-A A +A
By The Staff

Hopefully, the recent weather has not dampened everyone’s spirit for the year to come. With each new year comes changes in many things, including youth leagues. New ideas and possibilities to make the leagues stronger and more productive for the youngsters are always top priority. With this said, the Trimble County Youth Baseball League, like the softball league, is pleading for more members to join the board and help improve our league.

Our league is only as strong as the people that provide the needed time to run and support it. There are several spots open on the board that need to be filled. As the years pass on, so do the many members that have given up quality home time for the youth of our community. As the members’ own youth grow to move to higher levels of competition and/or reach an age that pushes them beyond our league, it becomes harder for those members to continue to put in the numerous hours needed.

The Trimble County Youth League’s next scheduled meeting begins at 7 p.m. on Feb. 25 at the 4-H building located at the Trimble County Park. All are welcomed to come and see what is involved in running the league, what would be expected from members, and/or just to offer new ideas. Again, it is stressed that our leagues need new members to continue. We have begged a few members to stay so that we can have time to find replacements, however our time is running out with our season starting just around the corner. If interested, or for more information, please call Tammy Duncan at (502) 255-3434.

The Youth League sign-up forms, slightly delayed due to weather, have been sent to the schools. Mark your calendars for try-outs March 14. Letters will be sent home with students after try-out times and locations are determined.

Once again, thank you to all who help the youth in and outside our community. Whether your support or assistance is on youth leagues or in other ways, they are our future.
