Softball and baseball are returning for the first time since 2008 to the Olympics. This year baseball plays July 28-Aug. 7 and softball play runs from July 21-27.
In honor of the Olympics, Personal Development and Family Activities Director Will Bildheiser suggested Friday, June 4, at the Jefferson Grange meeting that members hold a local softball tournament fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics. The two softball fields at the Schuylkill Haven Island were secured for October 2.
In preparation for the event, our members can learn more about how the Special Olympics makes a difference in the lives of those with unique abilities by watching this video featuring Kelli Ewbank, the daughter of a childhood friend of Jefferson Grange member Barbara Weller.
