500 BOYS CLUB ENDS SEASON A short time ago, the 500 Boys Club held their annual end-of-season Little League B-B-Q. A great number of folks turned out to watch the last games of the season, as well as to munch out on grilled hamburgers and hot dogs.

At the end of the Little League play-off , which ran over season, Fern's Petroleum was able to take away the win.

In another division, the Fern's Petroleum team once again took the first place trophy, competing against 6 other teams in the 14 game series. Coach Dave Hagar and Assist- ant Coach Marty Shaw brought the team through the season undefeated. Davidson Rubber finished second.

Some outstanding players this season were : AARON HAGAR, who pitched a no-hitter in the Little League Play-off game, hit fif- teen home runs in 14 games, and batted in with an over 800 average; Also SCOTT SMITH and DARREN MARTINEAU, who each batted just under 800 for the season.

Two special awards were given out during this event. Mrs. Quinn was awarded a plaque for her winning design in the Club's logo contest. Her design will appear on the Club's T-shirts, stationery, and many other items. Fittingly enough, the new logo was also engraved on the plaque she received. Kevin Barry, who recently re - signed from his more than 3 year job as the Club's treasurer, also received a plaque to honor him for the many hours he has worked as a volunteer. Mr. Barry has also been a coach for the Club, and has helped to build the new 500 Boys Club buildings.

Later on that afternoon, a drawing was held. The kids were responsible for selling the tickets, and several local merchants do- nated gift certificates to be used for prizes. A list of winners can be found on page 2.

These photos are stored together. They are from different periods of time. Last pulled together for possible use in August 1986.
