Hello Boosters . .
July has been a
GOOD month for the Angels and the Booster Club! Mike
Trout, Albert Pujols and Hector Santiago
were named as All-Stars, with Albert in the Home Run Derby
Semi-Finals and Mike being named All-Star MVP for the second
year in a row. And, the team has come back strong with a sweep
of the Red Sox and Albert passing Mike Schmidt to become 15th on
the list of all-time homerun hitters. Mike Trout even got his own
life-sized bobblehead from the Angels on Friday July 24th for being
the American League 2014 MVP!
The Boosters had a
very successful All-Star Watch Party on July 14th organized by Bobbie Hamfeldt and her committee with lots of good food, door prizes,
and raffles. Thanks to all who helped and attended! Also,
thanks to JP23 for again hosting the Boosters and making it a
fun experience. Join Bobbie on the Special Events Committee to
help plan the upcoming Annual Dinner and Toy Drive and picnic;
sign up at the next meeting.
At our July meeting, we
had Claude Bilodeau, the creator of the special signs used to
celebrate players at games. He was joined by his co-worker Mario
Lopez. After thinking about how Wally’s World (for Wally Joyner)
kept the Angels fans engaged in the ‘80s & early ‘90s, he wanted
to bring the fun to a new generation of fans.
It started with
Matsuiland in 2010, continued with
Toriitown in 2012, and now with CalZone.
Also at our July meeting, we welcomed new members
Matthew Holleman, Brittany Shook and
Jeff Smith. It is great having so many new members join
us in the fun while keeping our more senior members involved,
like Life Members Charlie Reimer and Don Carlson, who is joined
by newer member Alex Evink. And, the Board really appreciates
help from our members when we are short-handed, like selling the
50th Anniversary items. We still have some coffee mugs,
insulated plastic glasses, and pins available. The Board is
hoping to have some new items for 2016!
