Parks and Rec. Meeting April 10th
On Wednesday April 10th there is a meeting at the Mountain View Senior Center, 266 Escuela Ave., at 7:00 pm about the McKelvey Park conceptual plan. I know that some of you have games and some of you are on vacation but anybody that can show up to help support the fields would be great. I am so grateful for the support we received at the last meeting; it really made a difference in the eyes of the City.
Picture Day / Hit-a-Thon Fundraiser Sunday April 22nd
Please reserve this date on your calendar, as Sunday April 22nd will be our annual Team and Individual Picture Day with Shooting Star Productions. All players will receive a free personal and team photo, so please be sure you are in attendance. We will also be conducting the Hit-a-Thon contest, where all players in all Divisions will be hitting for individual prizes in an effort to support MVLL. This is the main fundraiser for the League and your participation is greatly appreciated. Information packets for both of these events will be going out shortly to your managers.
City of Mountain View Parade Saturday April 27th
Mountain View Little League will once again be participating in the city’s annual parade. Parade starts at noon. Minor, Pioneer, and T-Ball Division Teams are encouraged to participate in this community event. Check with your team's manager for additional instructions. Teams will meet up with Managers/Coaches at 11:30 AM (no later than 11:45) at the corner of Villa and Hope Street. One of the league's board members will be there for check-in. Teams will march in by Division with T-Ball first, Pioneer second, and then Minors. Teams within a Division will line up alphabetically by team name. This is a great community event. Invite your family, friends, and neighbors to come to the parade and cheer our Little Leaguers as they march down Castro Street.
