Undoubtedly our lives are all at least a little different than only a month ago because of the COVID-19 virus. In an effort to continue open communications in these uncertain times, the Mount Horeb Softball Board and our Youth Coordinators would like to provide the following updates and information:
Calendar Raffle Fundraiser:
After much discussion by the Softball Board we have decided that we will NOT be completing our annual calendar raffle fundraiser this year. For those who have already bought tickets we thank you for your generosity, but your money will be returned. Our strong suggestion and hope is that people who had or would have bought ticket(s) this spring, please consider donating that money if you are financially able to a local need. We are suggesting a couple options:
- Donate directly to a charitable cause in the community such as the Mount Horeb Food Pantry, the School Meal Program, or adding it as a tip to a local restaurant when you pick up a carryout.
- You can donate the money to the MHSC, and the Club will make a contribution to a deserving charity within the Mount Horeb Community on all our behalves. (to be very clear, MHSC will not keep any of this money, 100% will be donated to those in need)
Whatever you decide, we encourage everyone to support as many local businesses as possible and specifically those companies that support us: https://mohosoftballclub.com/oursponsors/
We have had a tremendous response to our spring apparel order. We have extended the deadline to place orders until Tuesday, March 31st at noon to allow those who have had their schedules disrupted to still place an order if they choose. If you placed an order and are now feeling a financial pinch, please reach out to one of the board members and we will work out a plan. If you should have any questions please reach out to Marah at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, also know that the prices listed in the store are at cost, the MHSC continually strives to provide the best value for our loyal families and hopes to encourage as many people as possible to dress with Softball Pride

Summer Youth Program:
As we all work to navigate this unprecedented situation, the MHSC Board and Youth Coordinators will not make any predictions or rash decisions on what our youth summer season will bring. Please, be patient as we wait to see what our government, school, youth leagues, and surrounding communities decide in the coming months. In the meantime, we encourage your youth to play in the yard, throw a ball, practice pitching drills, or simply exercise to stay in shape. Please know that there is still work occurring in the background by our dedicated group of volunteers to ensure that if/when the season starts that we will be ready!
Certainly, if the season is cancelled refunds of registration and jersey monies will be made. Regardless if the season should happen or not, if you should find yourself in a situation where your registration and jersey money is needed to help you weather this storm, please let any of the officers or youth coordinators know and your fee will be refunded without question.
Our thoughts go out to all those who are suffering physically, mentally or financially due to this pandemic. We are but a very tiny part of what is going on right now around all of us, but rest assured our goal is to put teams on the field if at all possible. We thank you for your support of the MHSC and hope and pray for good health for everyone!
