Lacrosse club gives community its gratitude | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

The Bainbridge Island Girls Lacrosse Club wishes to thank the many friends and families who supported the club’s recent compost and potting soil sale, fondly known around the club as our “dirt sale” fundraiser.

In just two weeks, our girls - from third graders all the way through seniors - sold more than 1,700 bags of Cedar Grove compost and more than 700 bags of potting soil to 480 happy customers. Your generosity and contributions through dirt sales, deliveries, raffle tickets and donations helped the club raise $10,000 that will go directly toward supporting the scores of girls ages 8 to 18 who play in our program.

Additional appreciation goes to the club’s dedicated JV and varsity players and their families who worked on pick-up day loading bags into cars, making deliveries around the island, and making a day of hard work a lot of fun.

A very special thank you to Nick and Cedar Grove Organic Compost for working with us, and Bainbridge Island Fire Department Station 23 at Phelps Road for providing the space for our delivery and pick-ups.

Lacrosse on Bainbridge Island is not just a sport, it is a part of the Island community. The Bainbridge Island Girl’s Lacrosse program is a not-for-profit group organized by volunteers with the goal of providing the opportunity for girls to learn and play the game of lacrosse. Our teams are mentored by the best available coaches who are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about helping our players find excellence in themselves and their team mates.

Thanks to the generous support of friends, neighbors and the Bainbridge Island community, these proceeds will help us cover expenses for coaches, fields, and referees, as well as provide scholarships so that girls aren’t denied the chance to play lacrosse just because of the cost.

Congratulations again, you have our gratitude for a job well-done.

THE 2013 BAINBRIDGE ISLAND GIRLS LACROSSE BOARD AND CLUB MEMBERS
