There will be Motown Sounds with the group "The Violations". The cost will be the same. $30.00 for food, drink, and shirt. Tickets have already gone on sale as of April 27.

Fishtown Athletic Club Alumni Scholarship Day & Community Softball Game 2017

 

 

On Saturday August 12th, the Alumni Association presented deserving students with scholarships and hosted the annual community softball game. Each scholarship winner was awarded $1,250.00 to help offset the cost of their educations. This years scholarship awards brought the total number of scholarships the Alumni Association has awarded since 1995 to 116, amounting to $134,000 over the years. As always the scholarships were awarded in memory of the Alumni's late founder Jack Moore.

The Blue Grey Community softball game was then played under much more favorable weather conditions than were experienced in 2016 when the temperature soared to the upper 90's. The Gray team was captained by Greg Fox and the Blue squad was led by Marc Alecia. Over the first three innings the game was close with the Gray team holding a slim 1-0 lead. In the fourth inning the Gray team scored three runs and followed up with a five run fifth inning. Going into the seventh inning the Gray team held a sizable 9-0 lead. In the top of the seventh the Blue team showed signs of life but their rally was cut short with the Gray team prevailing 9-3. All of the players enjoyed themselves and were treated to a picnic lunch following the game. This years game sponsor was the Yuster Allstate Insurance Agency. The Alumni Association thanks the Yuster Agency for their financial support.

 

 

Thanks again to our great sponsors for their time, effort, and support to help make this event so special. Fishtown Market 2328 E. Norris St., along with the terrific folks at Allstate Insurance Agency 209 N. 3rd. St.
