Take me out to the Ball Game!

Batter up! Can you believe Gresham has its very own baseball team? And we couldn’t be prouder to be one of their sponsors! Right here in our backyard we’ll be rooting for the home boys! And if you’re looking to get involved, here’s a great way to get up close and personal with some of the county’s best and brightest!

As the inaugural season of the Gresham GreyWolves Baseball approaches, nearing a June 3rd Opening Day, the club is searching for interested community members to take part in the GreyWolves’ host family program. It is an amazing opportunity to be part of these player’s lives as they strive for their athletic goals.

The GreyWolves are hosting an “Informational Meeting,” and invite you to attend. Monday, May 2, Origin’s Coffee House, 600 NW Eastman Parkway, Gresham, 5:30pm – 7:00pm. Team owners Jerry & Lisa Walker along with head coach Justin Barchus will be in attendance to explain the process, answer any questions, and give an overview of the upcoming season as a “Host Family.”

On another note, have you noticed all the portraits on the windows of the businesses in downtown Gresham? Elementary school students participate in this annual event by creating portraits of their mothers which are displayed in the windows of merchants throughout Historic Downtown Gresham. Portraits are judged and mothers of the winners are awarded prizes from Historic Downtown merchants. This is an amazing example of community involvement and such a fun event to look forward to every year! For more of what’s going on, please visit ExploreGresham.com! Lots of summer fun to come!
