Hello Boosters . .
. It is hard to believe
that we are heading into August already! Thanks to everyone for
the great support during the first half of the year. By the time
you get this newsletter, the All-Star Game will be history, but it
is nice to see that Mike Trout was named as a starter. At 22, he
will become the 4th AL outfielder to play in three All-Star Games
before his 23rd birthday, joining Mickey Mantle, Ken Griffey Jr.
and Al Kaline, according to the Angels website.
The Angels have had some fun promotions this year including "1/2
way to Christmas" on June 25th which set a Guinness Book of World
Records for people wearing Santa hats.
And, speaking of Mike Trout, it was brought to our attention that
two of our members have the same birthday as Mike and are ready to
celebrate August 7th: Nicole L'Hommedieu & Taylor Matusiak.
Thanks to Barb Frobenius for handling the meeting on 6/30,
especially with the record number of game tickets we had. And,
thanks to those who helped on Membership and Membership Table
while Darvin Evink is on vacation. We had one new member, Armando
Urteaga, at this meeting.
