Last week, the captains and their coaches from the Fairfield fastpitch softball team were eager to return to the field to celebrate a sizable donation of $500 from the Fairfield Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
Pictured, from left to right, are: Guerna, Maya, Brynlee, Savannah, Robert Pope, Gary Kasper, Laurence Vincent, Paul Wilson, Taylor Bolkcom, Brynn, Emma, and Hannah.
The captains of the team will begin their 3rd year in the upcoming season. Wilson and Bolkcom serve as coaches; Pope, Kasper and Vincent were there on behalf of the VFW. Taylor Bolkom and Paul Wilson told the Sun Times that there has been a good response to the efforts to raise money for the field, and that other fundraising projects are under consideration. As of last week, the team had already raised about 15 per cent of their goal! For more information on how to donate, contact Paul at 788-7507. Donations can be mailed to: Fairfield Youth Baseball, P.O Box 834, Fairfield, MT 59436
