Letter: Elburn Baseball & Softball thanks National Bank & Trust

Elburn Baseball and Softball would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the National Bank & Trust of Elburn for including our organization in this past summer’s Baseballs on Parade community art project.

Baseballs on parade celebrated the village of Elburn, past and present, and America’s pastime with local businesses and individuals decorating concrete baseballs to display throughout the summer. The project concluded with the baseballs being auctioned off during the Elburn Days festival with proceeds benefiting scholarships at Kaneland High School and the Elburn Baseball & Softball organization.

Elburn Baseball & Softball is a nonprofit organization made up entirely of community and family volunteers. Without the assistance of our great sponsors, like National Bank & Trust, the baseball and softball program would not be possible.

Thanks again to the National Bank & Trust.

Letter: Elburn Baseball and Softball thanks National Bank and Trust

Elburn Baseball and Softball would like to publicly extend our deepest thanks and gratitude to the National Bank and Trust of Elburn.

On Sunday, April 19, the National Bank and Trust organized and underwrote a very successful teaching clinic held at Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove.

The three-hour clinic was instructed by WCC head baseball coach Dave Randall, with many of his players on hand to assist. Although the day was rainy, the weather didn’t dampen the spirit and enthusiasm of all involved.

Just like the personalized greeting and friendly handshake when entering and leaving the bank, our friends from the National Bank and Trust were on hand to ensure the clinic and every last detail was handled from start to finish.

We would like to personally thank CeCe Rocha, Ryan Gifford, Josh Orth, Ben Roberts, Pat Emerson, Mercedes Rocha, Tamara Newquist, and a special “thank you” to Tami Armstrong for planning this outstanding event.

Elburn Baseball and Softball is a not-for-profit organization made up entirely of community and family volunteers. Without the assistance of our great sponsors, the season could not be possible. Thanks again to the National Bank & Trust.

Thanks for helping Elburn Baseball, Softball

Elburn Baseball and Softball would like to thank several people for their many years of service to the league.

Mike and Dawn Kuefler, John Van Bogaert and Randy Jones have been instrumental over the past few years in bringing the league to the level of excellence we have all come to expect. However, as their kids have grown out of the program, new leadership is necessary.

Elburn Baseball and Softball is run entirely through parent volunteers. We are not part of a park district (Elburn does not have one), and therefore it takes us as a community to make the baseball and softball experience the best we possibly can for our kids.

As a league we are at a crossroads. Without some new blood, the league stands little chance of maintaining or hopefully improving upon the foundation that has been left to us by the previous administration. We are currently in need of help on many fronts. If your children are involved in the league, I strongly urge you to attend an EBS meeting or contact a member of the board via the EBS website at www.elburn.com/baseball.

These EBS meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. at the Library. Our next meeting will be a mandatory coaches meeting, but will also be open to all others. This meeting will be held at Lions’ Park on Tuesday, Feb. 3, at 7 p.m. I can’t stress this enough: Your village’s league will not survive without your help.
