A beautiful note from a 2013 team:
We just want to thank you for a very fun time! We very much enjoyed this spring league. Thank you, thank you, thank you…so much! We just wanted to thank you for everything you did put this together and all of your time. We want to tell you how much fun we had and how thankful we are that this was a very family-friendly event weekly. Our little ones looked as forward to Sundays as we did.
So, a BIG thank you.
