WORKING BEE SUCCESS
The Golden Grove Central Districts Baseball Club would like to thank everyone that came out to support our working bee this past Saturday on the weekend of 9 September 2023.
The feedback from the field is that it was one of our most successful working bees in recent times and the contribution from all over the club was noted, so thank you again on behalf of the club.
The turnout and contribution from many people made this job a lot easier and we likely will not need a further working bee this pre-season. We have included some images below from the day
