LIFE IS LIKE A GAME OF MUSICAL CHAIRS -- So the kids may as well learn now, right? Well, they were doing a pretty good job of it this month at the fourth annual Family Day event at the Pomona PONY Baseball and Softball League. Pictured near the end of an important early round are kids in the five and under age group. The league includes 110 players on nine teams this year.
CHECK PRESENTATION TO THE TIGERS -- Members of the Pomona Breakfast Optimist Club were on hand at Pomona PONY League Family Day this month to present a check for $250 to the Tigers, their adopted team. The club also presented a check for $100 to the Ganesha High School junior varsity baseball team. Pictured, from left, are Barry Dolgivin, Optimist Club vice president; Stephanie Gallentine, Optimist Club secretary; Rebecca Byrne, Optimist Club member; the "bunny," mascot for the Optimists, with Destinee Arenas inside (on a very hot day); Margarita Silva, Optimist Club president; Joaquin Rodriguez, Optimist Club treasurer; Moises Silva, league president and head coach of the Tigers; Pomona Mayor Elliott Rothman; M.

SCHOOL OF ARTS AND ENTERPRISE PROVIDED THE FACE PAINTING -- Face painting was an important part of getting into the spirit of things this month at the fourth annual Family Day event at the Pomona PONY Baseball and Softball League. Pictured, at left, is Skylar Cooper, a sophomore from Temple City attending Pomona's School of Arts and Enterprise, putting on the finishing touches for a very patient Riley Cruz, 4, of the Pomona Tigers team.
