Return to Glory Days Dance….Supporting the Return of Ball to South Dundas


Having fun is what it is all about, whether it be playing ball or dancing and singing along to some great tunes…and with that said, the local Woodwork band has stepped up to home plate with the up and coming ball players of the Morrisburg T-Ball and Coach-Pitch program to help bring ball activity back to the South Dundas diamonds and baseball fun back to the kids. Coming up on Saturday, July 20 at the Morrisburg Legion, the members of the Woodwork band have traded ball gloves for guitars for a fundraiser dance to benefit the local ball program. “It’s an adult dance, and although there is no admission charge, we will be accepting donations at the door to our T-Ball/Coach-Pitch Ball program,” says Paul Sheldrick, who along with a handful of volunteers run the league in an effort to re-establish the sport in South Dundas. “We are calling it the Return to Glory Days Dance. We remember the glory days of ball when we played and had fun, and we are trying to bring back the fun and the game.” Sheldrick says he is hoping that everyone in the South Community will be on board to support the return of baseball/softball to the area, former ball fans and players, current ball players and parents of children who would like to see them return to the sport locally. He is delighted that the Workwork band of Bobby Paradis (singer/guitar), Ron Dupuis (singer/guitar), Justin Beckstead (drummer) and James Orendi (bass guitar), have donated their time to help out. All money raised at the dance will go to the T-Ball/Coach-Pitch program. Pictured above, after a tough Monday night practise, front are Rayna and Dorion Sheldrick.

The band, the kids and the organizers are encouraging everyone in the South Dundas Community to come out to the Return to Glory Days Dance on July 20 for a good time and a good cause.
