Our guest speakers will be Dave French and Jeff Ryan speaking about the "Light It Up" project to bring night baseball to Prescott. Plans are being made to add lights to the baseball field across from the fire hall so it will be possible to play night games, which will greatly expand usage of the facility and expand recreational opportunities in the city. A fundraiser is planned for May 18th at the Brickyard to raise money for the project. Come and find out what's being done to change night into day at the ball park!

Our guest speakers will be Jim Himes and Lauren Evans from Fairmont Minerals Corporation in Bay City, which operates the sand mining facility. They will do an informational presentation on their mining operation. It will be an opportunity for our members to learn about the company and hear the company's perspective on the impact of mining on our area. This might be a controversial subject for some members, but President Mike thinks it is important to listen to all viewpoints!
