CYO Softball Cleans Up Charity

This past Sunday the Our Lady of Charity's CYO JV Softball team went to the schoolgrounds and spent 3 hours picking up trash, sticks, rocks and anything that didn't belong on our fields. They walked the grounds in front of the school, church and rectory. They also covered the fields out back, where most of the trash was. They collected 8 bags of trash. There were 13 girls from the team helping. They painted the job box green and put the team logo on top of it. It was a fun day. The kids had a great time together.

OLC's home schedule is:
   Wed. April 20 vs. St. Thomas at 4:00 PM at Brookhaven Memorial Park Field # 4
   Thursday April 28 vs. St. John's 4:00 PM at Brookhaven Memorial Park Field # 4
