Annual General Membership Meeting of Vernon-Rockville Little Lea
Invitation to the Annual General Membership Meeting of Vernon-Rockville Little League,
On Tuesday, September 27th, the Vernon Rockville Little League Board of Directors will be holding our annual General Meeting at the VCMS auditorium beginning at 7:30.
In the last two years, as the former Rockville and Vernon leagues have come together, our community has seen a lot of change and growth. We have had many challenges and successes along the way. By far, the biggest success has been that we have established a better, stronger league for our children and others in the community. As a result, our 9/10 Softball Tournament Team won the Connecticut Section 4 Championship, our 9/10 Baseball Team won the District 8 Championship and our 9U tournament team won the annual Father’s Day Tournament! This was a direct result of the hard work put in by the Players, Coaches, Board Members and other volunteers. We are very proud of our Championship teams and will be recognizing them at our upcoming General Membership meeting.We invite you to join us in the recognition.
As with all parent volunteer based organizations, change is a constant state for us. At the meeting later this month, we will be voting in a new Board of Directors for the upcoming baseball season. Many existing Board Members will continue on to support the league, but many will not, leaving several volunteer positions needing to be filled.
We are reaching out today especially to parents of younger players. We are doing so because when we look at the board, most of us have children in the upper levels of the League or quite frankly no longer even have children playing. In 1 or 2 years, most of the current board will have moved on as our children will have aged out of the program. In order to build on the recent successes of our league, it is imperative that parents of younger children join the Board, get involved and begin the transition into new parent leadership.
If you have made it this far, I know there is hope but I am sure that you are thinking that you don’t have time. All of us on the Board can understand the great competition for time that we all face as parents of active children. When I joined the Board I thought to myself, “what am I doing, I work too much, my children are not only in baseball, but Scouts and other activities, and I don’t have time for this.” But I saw the need and wanted to help make a better league for my children and others.We promise you that if you make the same choice it will be worth it. It is an awesome and worthwhile way to give back to the community that we are all proud to live in and be a part of.
The Vernon Rockville Little League mission is to “teach the children of Vernon-Rockville the fundamentals of baseball and softball while promoting good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty and respect for authority so that they will be well adjusted, strong, and happy children who grow to be good, decent, healthy and trustworthy adults. Developing exceptional athletic skills and winning games is secondary to molding exemplary citizens." On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are reaching out to all parents, to come to our meeting, learn more about our league, become a volunteer and help us be wildly successful in our mission!!!
Congratulations to the 9/10 girls for winning the Section 4 championship with a 3-2 victory over Coventry. The girls are now one of four teams that will advance to the state tournament finals. Additional details including the game schedule can be found at the following link:
