Eight teams are participating and a canteen will be available.

The Township of La Vallee would like to thank Pruys Direct (Mark Pruys) for donating the “Carmody Field” sign at the ball park.

Congratulations to Logan Allen and Miranda Olesko on the birth of their son, Cohen Joseph.
Proud grandparents are Murnie and Pam Allen and Brenda Allen, and Carol and Jerry Mark.

Sincere sympathy to the family of Doug Witherspoon, who passed away last week.
He grew up Devlin and raised his family here. He always had a smile and time for a conversation.
Doug loved his family and friends, and enjoyed his life to the fullest. He was a kind soul and would do anything for anybody.
He definitely will leave a hole in the hearts of many.

Get well wishes are extended to Jerry Allen, who has been struggling with serious health issues.
Your community of family and friends is thinking of you at this time.
