Softball Umpires needed: Mt. Olive Lutheran Grade School sponsors a grade school co-ed softball tournament on Tuesday, May 17 at Caswell Park beginning at 9:00 concluding at 3:30. We are looking for volunteers (or paid individuals) to umpire. Umps do not need to worry about balls and strikes, since they just call the bases. Each batter gets 4 pitches to attempt to get a hit. Batters may still strike out. Umps will need to know the basic softball rules. If you are able to help out on this day, please contact Mr. Zibrowski by calling the school office at 345-7927 or emailing Mr. Zibrowski at
