• Approved plans for a new concession stand at the softball field. This was a parent-led effort by Cindy Jones, who raised the funds. According to Jones, more than enough money was raised, and businesses are donating labor, lumber and concrete. Softball season begins May 22, though no one is sure if the new stand will be completed in time. The former stand will not be torn down until the new one is complete.
