From the President

Our newest family member!

From the president

My Thanksgiving was different this year than in years past. Instead of hosting a large table of family and close friends, we ventured to my aunt's home and enjoyed her perfect stuffing, wonderfully seasoned potatoes and sweet dessert bars. While it was a perfect holiday, it felt quieter. Without having to rush a meal to the table, I had more time to reflect and be still. I thought about what it truly means to have and to give.

As part of that, I thought about GAL and all of you, and I wanted to thank you.

Thank you for supporting GAL and for giving of your time and talents for our girls. Whether it’s volunteering in the concession stand, coaching a team, serving on the board, or being in the stands: YOU are what makes GAL great.

As the days get shorter and the bitterness of winter knocks on our doors, remember that softball isn’t too far away (thank goodness since I detest the cold). We have several off-season clinics and in-person registrations coming up, along with other community events. We hope to see you at some of these.

Please also consider volunteering for GAL; we need board members and coaches for the 2019 season. Reach out to me at for more information.

May your December be bright and the start to your 2019 be joyous! I will be house training the newest member of our family, Harris (Harrie) Sue.
