Brother Knights,
I am thrilled to announce that a baseball field within the Archdiocese of Detroit is officially being dedicated to our founder, Blessed Michael McGivney. After much hard work and dedication, the Clinton Valley Little League Challenger Division Senior League Baseball Field will be blessed and named in honor of Blessed Michael McGivney on Saturday, June 15th, 2024. The ceremony will take place at 1pm at Neil Reid Park, located at 37705 Harper Road in Clinton Township. We will all meet in the school parking lot at Noon.
As this initiative is in partnership with Special Olympics, we are honored to have Robbie Waclawski, the Director of Civic Partnership and State Sponsorship at Special Olympics of Michigan, as our guest speaker. Director Waclawski also serves as the Director of Special Olympics for the Michigan Knights of Columbus State Council.
In addition, I am pleased to share that Daniel Downey, a member of St. Jane Francis DeChantel Council 13340 and a league athlete, will be presenting League President Marilyn Wittstock with flowers as a token of appreciation for her dedication to the league. Daniel will be accompanied by his fellow council delegates.
I will provide further details as the event gets closer. I look forward to seeing you all at the field for this momentous occasion!
Vivat Jesus!
