The Seaway Surge Baseball Club benefited immensely from all the community support they had this past season.
Merrickville Lions Club President Gerry Seguin along with other members represented the club in presenting Seaway Surge with a $3385 donation this year. Their generous donation was used to buy supplies for the baseball club, including a new batting mound for the Mosquito and Peewee-age players to use at the newly renovated Merrickville baseball diamond.
Run Merrickville donated $2500 to the club, which was used to buy new inground peg bases, field liner and a Zooka pitching machine to be used for training. Jim Hogan from Jim Perry Motors donated $1000 to the club which was used for various other baseball supplies and Regional Signs donated the new Seaway Surge banner.
The club also did their part to give back to the community by donating $500 to the Merrickville Agricultural Society during this year’s Merrickville Fair.
Vice President of Seaway Surge, Calvin Medynski, says they are very thankful for all the support they have received from the community. “Seaway Surge acknowledges that without the generous contributions of the local community the Surge wouldn’t be able to offer the top baseball equipment and learning tools to help our kids perform at the elite level of play.”
