Thanks for tournament
To the editor:
When Trevor passed away, we promised ourselves that we would do something to keep him alive in our hearts and honor him every year. Trevor's tournament raises money for a scholarship to educate upcoming medical students about Krabbe Disease. Each applicant has to do research on Krabbe Disease and then submit an application.
We would like to thank everyone that made this year's Trevor's Tournament a big success again. Thank you to the sponsors: Baldwin Athletic Club, Mid America Bank, Hilco Mortgage, The Baldwin State Bank, Dr. Kevin Hughes, Baldwin City Market, Arrowhead Hardware, C Design Floral, Santa Fe Market, The Lodge, Heritage Tractor, Mr. Goodcents, Hair and Nail Company, Barker Pharmacy, Vintage Park, Quilter's Paradise, Baldwin City Recreation, Walt's Pizza and Baldwin High Honor Society.
Thank you also to all the teams and the umpires that made the day great. Congratulations to the winning teams: Chicken Legs and Thunder Thighs (first place), The Family (second place) and The Lodge (third place). Our MVPs were hard to pick this year with a three way tie for the girls. Congratulations to Jamie Florance (Chicken Legs and Thunder Thighs), Tiffany Madl (The Family), Suzy Hall (The Lodge) and for the guys, Mark Brown (Santa Fe Market).
Bill and Michelle Leeker
Response brings thanks
To the editor:
We want to express out deepest appreciation to the Baldwin City Fire Department, Baldwin City Police Department and Baldwin City Electric for the quick response they gave on May 27 when lightning hit Subway around 2:30 a.m. When Subway's emergency was under control, the fire department came over and checked out Quilters' Paradise and Joanna's Tanning for possible fire and equipment damage. Luckily, nothing was damaged beyond repair. Only smoke from Subway had carried over and that was something that a little airing took care of.
Unfortunately, Subway was not as lucky as we were. Since they obviously lost their electricity, and they were going to lose all their food, Subway decided to take a bad situation and turn it into a good thing they donated food to three different churches who in return fed five families. Thank you, Subway, for being so thoughtful!
