Softball Frolic Parade Float

The Mount Horeb Summer Frolic is just around the corner, and the Softball Club will be having a float in this year’s parade!

All are welcome to help decorate the float on Saturday from 10AM to noon at the Kraemer’s house (3160 Getz Road, Mt. Horeb) and/or join in the parade on Sunday.

The parade starts at noon, so please have your daughter to the parade start (along E. Lincoln Street on the north side of the Middle School) no later than 11:45 a.m.  The parade ends on Parkway Drive by the Frolic grounds which is where the girls will be dropped off, so please make plans to meet up there.

If the girls can wear their red jerseys, or anything red / softball related, that would be great.  Please text or email me at 608-239-8207 or katekraemer99@gmail.com with any questions.

Here is a link to more info on the parade, including the route map: https://mthorebsummerfrolic.com/home-html/events/parade/

Thanks,

Varsity Field Improvements

IMG_3522

A HUGE thank you to Jim Ramos from American Fence for finding time between the rain showers to install a new section of backstop fencing at the Varsity field. The section of fencing they replaced was bowed out from balls hitting it through the years, therefore Jim’s crew added reinforcing pipes to keep things in shape for a long time to come. The old fencing was not only a safety concern, but an eye sore up against the great looking concrete work that Derek Dahlk of Finks Paving, Excavating, and Concrete completed at the end of 2017 combined with the electrical material donations by Crescent Electric. These projects, plus our new bleachers, finish off three years of hard work and fundraising for this area of the Varsity field.  Thanks to great sponsors like these for their dedication to Mount Horeb Softball!

Shown above installing fencing are Mike, Pat, and Mike – Thanks for your hard work!

Varsity Field Improvement

drain tile 2drain tile 1Thanks to a cooperative effort between the Mount Horeb School District and the Mount Horeb Softball Club, a new drain tile was installed along the first base line of the varsity field.  This improvement will help with wet conditions that the high school and youth teams have been struggling with in this area of the field.

A big thank you to Derek Dahlk, Finks Paving and Excavating, Ryan Clifton, and Wes Parks for their hard work!!!  Don’t see anything different in the picture?  That’s because these guys do such good work!!! (…and the photographer may have been a little tardy with snapping pictures 🙂 – trust us – it’s in there!
