The tenth anniversary season for the Miracle League of Amherstburg is now in the books.

The Miracle League held a year-end banquet Saturday afternoon at the Knights of Columbus Hall in McGregor where teams, coaches, parents and volunteers were welcomed for a meal, a dance and some fun.

One of the highlights was the playing of a new video from Mitch Bouchard of Red Cape Films. The new video showed action at the Miracle League of Amherstburg as well as testimonials from board members, players and parents.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to let other families know we exist,” said Michele Vigneux, a Miracle League parent and board member.

The video is also expected to assist in attracting new volunteers to the diamond every spring and fall when the Miracle League seasons are in action. Each Miracle League season lasts eight Saturdays and volunteers are regularly needed to ensure players have enough “buddies” and that the league runs safely and smoothly.

Vigneux also said the Miracle League of Amherstburg is “very, very lucky” as they get “generous support” from many organizations. Organizations that helped out at last Saturday’s banquet included the McGregor Columbian Club as well as the McGregor Columbian Squires as both groups donated $1,500 each.
