Post 8 Baseball Roast Beef Fundraiser and Home Town Hero
Post 8 baseball is pleased to announced that we will be hosting our Annual Roast Beef Fundraiser on Thursday, April 25th from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM at the American Legion Cabin in Pierre.
In the tradition of the Roast Beef Fundraiser, we also present our Home Town Hero award to those individuals that have contributed in either time, talent, or financially over the years to the Post 8 Baseball program. This years recipients are Dr. James Trimble and the Russ Snyder Memorial Scholarship donors.
This is the year the 20th anniversary of the Russ Snyder Memorial Scholarship which award aids Post 8 players and their collegiate aspirations.
Russ Snyder played Post 8 Legion in 1974 and 1975, went on to become a two-time all-conference selection at the University of South Dakota.
Dr. James Trimble was a teammate of Russ. At Snyder’s funeral in 2000, he and others wanted to do something positive in memory of his love for the game and it was then Dr. Trimble came up with the scholarship to honor Russ’ hard work, leadership and dedication. Russ died at the age of 43.
Please join us for a great meal, including roast beef sandwiches, Bob's baked beans, coleslaw, chips, desserts and soda. We hope to see you there.
