Bull City Little League: Welcome

 

 

BCLL Annual Meeting is Thursday, October 16th

The BCLL Annual Meeting is Thursday, October 16th at the Town and Country building across from the fields at 7 PM.

This meeting is open to all BCLL family members and we encourage everyone to attend.

Agenda items for the meeting include a State of the League Address from the president, financial status report, budget proposal for fiscal year 2015, and election of board members for 2015.

All board positions are up for election every year.

This year in particular, there are several long term board members who are not returning or are not returning in their current positions, so there is an opportunity to joing the board and help plan the future of BCLL.

If you have any questions, are interested in joining the board, or are interested in joining a committee, please contact us.
