Below is a message from the league submitted by Darrell Maser:

     On September 9th, we held our final league scramble and our annual windup supper. 
The weather was beautiful and we had a great turnout of the leagues players. We were able to make 8 pretty competitive teams; the Mavericks, Juggies, Mikes Meats, Lakers, Redi, and the Red Sox along with their wives and girlfriends, did a great job of working together to help make the day enjoyable. There was lots of help from all the member that pitched in during the day. Thanks to everyone. 
We prepared and served our supper this year and thought it went over well. The cooks, Bruce Gardiner, Ken Bachmier, and Harvey Buye barbecued some excellent steaks. Great job fellows. 
We would like to acknowledge Randy and Gary and their crew of Darlene Black, Bob Charette, Roger King, Larry Savage, and Lutz Perschon for scorekeeping and announcing not only this event, but all the other games during the year. They certainly add to the professionalism of our league. It’s a huge commitment and we appreciate this. Thank you to Rick Parker, Curtis Scherger, Norm Emann, Ken Kallis, Darren Stenke, Dave Hammel, Jim Black, and many others that put in the work to keep the diamond in top shape. At the windup we recognized Jim Black as a life member. Jim has put in countless hours of time over the years just doing whatever needed to be done. He has the energy of a twenty year old. The honour of a life membership for Jim is well deserved. 
We would also like to acknowledge Harvey Moch on being able to play with his sons for all these years. That’s quite a legacy for Harvey and Millie and the rest of their family. 
We’ve had 3 scrambles and a big tournament and we believe they were successful and enjoyable for everyone that was involved. All this could not have happened without the assistance of our members in this league. 
A couple more people we would like to thank are Gerard Hittel and the Huff and Puffs for putting together a great tournament. Thank you to our executive for all they do in our league. It was a great year, thank you to everyone who made it possible. Hope to see you all next year.

Below is a message from Jim Black:
  • The 2023 season is now officially over and on behalf of the Executive, I would like to thank all the members who volunteered their time to help make Lorne Holden a  true "Field Of Dreams" for so many of us! Have a safe winter and to the members going "Down South" may your hits be many and your errors few.

Below is a message from the league:
  • A special thanks to Ken Kallis and friends for the fresh paint job on the Lorne Holden sign above the score clock.  On the back of the sign, Ken has captured the feeling many of us have about the Lorne Holden Field. Next time you drive by take a look.
