Softball and Employee Banquet

The softball team lost a hard fought game against Edgewood last night in the bi-district championship game. While the loss ended the Lady Bulldog’s season, it does not take away from the great year that they had. Congratulations to all the players for a great year! Congratulations to Dottie Hawthorne, head coach, and Carlos Rivera, assistant coach. Also, a special thank you to all the fans for their continued support throughout the season.

This year’s recipient was Thomas Frazier. Mr. Frazier donated a tremendous amount of time and expertise in working on the parking area at the softball/baseball fields. His generous donation of time, expertise, and machinery is greatly appreciated!

Each year, Mary Bell and Faye Barnett work tirelessly to secure an abundant amount of door prizes for our employees. This year, they again did an absolutely fantastic job! I want to say a special thank you to Mary and Faye for all their work in making the Employee Banquet a huge success!
