Game Day Sept. 26, 2015
Posted September 27, 2015

So many wonderful moments shared today. Thanks to the grade 8 students from St. Joseph's Church (River Canard) who came out with their families to volunteer today. All of you were a big help! We are so happy you spent some time with us. We also want to thank our friends from the Scotia Bank (Amherstburg Branch) who sponsored our BBQ today and brought with them great support and enthusiasm. These fine folks not only handled the bbq but joined in for some dancing and Miracle League fun!! Thank you to all for bringing smiles and laughter to us today.  smile emoticon

Celebration Day
Posted September 20, 2015

For those of you who missed our celebration today, here are the beautiful words of support and recognition Mayor DiCarlo shared with us today:

Amherstburg has a vast array of amenities, clubs, festivals, events and historical sites. Individually...and combined...they define what makes this community one of the greatest places to live and visit. The Miracle League holds a very special place in this list, as it embodies so many of the attributes of all the other combined.  Unique and historical - although it is not that old, it is already historical as the first Miracle League in Canada, built and running for years before another was built in the Country's capital. I can't stress how incredible it is that a relatively small group of volunteers took it upon themselves to realize this extraordinary venue. Community support - as I see it...the Miracle League defines our community...people volunteering their time, working together for the betterment of their family, friends, and people they've never met before. Inclusive - a venue..without the typical barriers still found in too many places...to include children and adults that need a different kind of playing field People - you can't have a community without people...our people are the most dedicated, caring and giving group of volunteers.

Wind or rain couldn't stop the Miracle League.

The wind or rain couldn't stop the Miracle League from celebrating their new diamond and amazing score board.  While waiting for the rain to stop,  Mayor DiCarlo and player/volunteer, Max Vigneux, decided to pass their time taking some selfies.
The Mayor shared that one of his favourite mayoral duties is spending time with the young citizens of the Amherstburg community. 
Thank you Firefighters for all you have done.
