On Saturday, March 4,we had a wonderful event at Kulhken Field in MacAuthur Park as our Rotary Club helped another community organization. We support local youth sports. The temperature was cool, but the sun came out in the afternoon. Providing food and refreshments for the players, families, and friends was our gesture to help make this opening day event enjoyable for everyone involved.  The La Mesa National Little League players and families appreciated the hamburgers, hot dogs (chili), cookies, chips, and water that our Rotary Club provided.
We had fifteen Rotarians and friends participate in preparing and serving the food.  We provided free lunches for nearly 500 guests. With  community events like this La Mesa Rotary is helping to build camaraderie with everyone who attended.  The San Diego Padre mascot greeted the players and families. The young children had a "jumpy" to play in after the ceremony and there were antique cars on show.  Thank you to the La Mesa Police and Fire Department for attending and interacting with everyone: helping to build a better community. La Mesa National Little League had a successful Opening Day, and we hope everyone enjoyed the food and festivities.
