Hiawatha Fun Days Volunteers Thank You
Although the numbers were small, a BIG THANK YOU to those who volunteered to help with the inflatables for the Hiawatha Fun Fest. The HKL needs and appreciates your efforts and could use a lot more like you.
End of Season and looking forward. *UPDATED*
FOLLOW UP TO THE BELOW...
Another reminder that the End of the Year meeting will be Monday August 27th at 7pm at the Hiawatha public library. The organization will be in need of replacement board members and this is also the opportunity for you to voice the positive and opportunities for improvement on the past season. I also want to take this opportunity to announce with a heavy heart that after 10 years with the league I have decided that I will no longer be a member of the HKL Board of Directors. I love this league and will continue to volunteer to help in several ways so you will not be totally rid of me. The board will for sure be looking for replacements in the office of the Commissioner and also Treasurer. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I will not be in attendance at the meeting as I will be out of town on business.
We are coming up to the end of the year and I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of what I think is one of the best community organizations in the area. Every year we have some challenges and it was no different this year. The weather was very tough on us and we have a few teams that will not have played as much as we wanted. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature sometimes. Also, as with other years the board members were approached with many suggestions that came in the form of constructive ideas and a few that I will call complaints.
My response to most of these conversations is to recommend that members who wish to understand rules, policies or even suggest changes that they please join us at our end of year meeting that happens the last Monday of August (this year the 27th) to review the year and make suggestions. This meeting is held at the Hiawatha Public Library at 7 pm.
The second (and more important) suggestion I make to all is to volunteer to be a board member and/or sit on a committee. Let me expand on that statement. Currently there are 12 board members. Of those 12 members only 4 of them have children playing in the league. We need to get some parents/guardians to become involved in the “day to day” operations of HKL. I know at least 3 (and am sure that number is higher) of the current board members will not be returning next year. One of the reasons for the retirement is the feeling that most of the board should be people with children in the league and have a vested interest in taking the league into the next few years.
Good luck in the tournament and as always if you have any questions feel free to contact me.
