Kiwanis Donate Scoreboard To Little League


Kiwanis ScoreboardThe players warmed up, the umpire dusted off the bases, the snack shack opened and the parents picked out choice spots in the shade. It was “America’s Favorite Pastime” on Saturday, May 2, and a special day for the Cactus Foothills North Little League because it was the inauguration of their new scoreboard, the icing on the cake of a recently refurbished field.

Kiwanis Club of Carefree is proud to be the Name Sponsor for the Cactus Foothills North Little League baseball field’s scoreboard,” says Bob Swan, president, Kiwanis Club of Carefree. “Club members and volunteers are proud to support young athletes striving to be the best they can be, their dedicated coaches, and their parents or guardians. Kiwanians are all about helping kids and local communities.”

The scoreboard was a donation from the Kiwanis Club of Carefree Benefit Foundation. The cost of the scoreboard was $7,000. Jeff Reuter, a parent in the Cactus Foothills North Little League, and his company Sonoran Landesign donated all of the work and materials.

“We are very grateful for the generous donation made by Carefree Kiwanis to Cactus Foothills North Little League,” says Steve Fair of the Cactus Foothills North Little League.

Mark Fossey, Cactus Foothills North Little League President wholeheartedly agreed, “The thing I love about Little League is that it’s all about community. Thanks to the support of our community partners, the kids are meeting people, being social, leaning how to win and lose and sportsmanship.”

The ball field is located at the north end of Cave Creek Unified School District (CCUSD) education complex south of Carefree Highway, between 56th and 60th Streets. For more information, visit www.cfnll.com, www.kiwaniscarefree.org or contact the Kiwanis at 480.488.8400.
