In a written request to council, Lyle Schell asked for permission to hold the 9th annual ‘Casey at Bat’ fastball tournament.
Requiring no discussion, the request was approved by council during the ‘general consent’ portion of the April 17th South Dundas council meeting.
As Schell pointed out in his email to council, in the past “we have raised over $6,000 which has been donated to a number of causes over the years. For example, Seaway graduating students, the Cancer Society and local hospice care.”
The tournament is to be held the weekend of May 25th, 26th, and 27th and, in addition, Schell optioned the “north side of the recreation building for our refreshment gardens at J.C. Whitteker Park” in Williamsburg.
