Opening Day for Baseball/Softball 2013


Softball/BaseballOpening Day Baseball

 

 

Well, the calendar said first day of Spring yesterday and today there’s still a chill in the air and tomorrow is supposed to be even colder with a chance of rain/sleet/flurries.  Welcome Opening Day of Baseball/Softball.  I can remember freezing my tail off when we were having try-outs.  It’s just another reminder to us that Mother Nature is in control not us.  Well I should say God is in control.

A parade will start off the festivities on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 11:00 at Pike County Primary School Horseshoe Drive.  Sorry kidd’s but no candy will be thrown from parade vehicles this year due to safety concerns for the children.  Once at the ball field from the parade, opening ceremonies will be held at 12:00 noon   Parade of Athletes will start off the ceremony followed by OPENING PRAYER, NATIONAL ANTHEM, and  the throwing of the first pitch.  The first games of Baseball and Softball are scheduled to begin at 1:00.

They will have plenty of food and fun for everyone.  There will be inflatables, concession stands and additional food vendors on hand to serve your needs.  Please also remember the park is now 100% TOBACCO FREE.

ENJOY YOUR DAY AND BEST OF LUCK!!!!!

Fall is in the Air


I think this is my favorite time of the year.  I used to think it was Spring but now I think it’s fall.  Fall is a welcome change from the extremely hot summer we had this year.  I know we had several days in a row that it was above 90 degrees.  Still, right now, I looked at my phone at 2:00 in the afternoon and it says the Imagetemperature is 69 degrees!!!!  Whoo Hoo!  So ready for this. 

Did you put out your fall “stuff” yet?  I had the best of intentions but I just couldn’t get myself up in my attic to retrieve it.  Pike County Georiga is trying to get ALL households to decorate for Fall.  First day of fall was Saturday, September 22, 1012. 

Happy Fall Y’all.
