Aspinwall baseball, softball could get boost

Wednesday, April 10, 2013, 9:01 p.m.
 

Aspinwall Borough officials are considering a donation to bolster the Aspinwall baseball and softball program this year.

The Aspinwall Baseball and Softball organization, a volunteer group that provides baseball activities for local children, is in need of financial help, volunteers said.

The group typically has not had to raise money in the past.

Registration costs between $75 and $95 per player.

Councilman Jim Donahoe said it's possible the borough could contribute funds this year.

A fundraiser took place last weekend. Once donations from that event are added up, council can decide how to help.

Organizers have said they hope to raise about $8,000.

“We'll discuss it and see what we can come up with,” Donahoe said.

A former member of the program, Susan Sundo, is accused of misusing a debit card to charge more than $4,800.

She was charged with theft late last month and faces a preliminary hearing on that charge in June. She operated the group's concession stand.

The group also has to purchase some new equipment to meet new safety regulations.

Green streets

Aspinwall's annual Green Streets Clean Up Day will be April 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. Work will begin on Brilliant Avenue.

All ages are invited to help clean up the borough.

Next meeting

The next Aspinwall council meeting is scheduled for May 1 at 7 p.m. at the borough building on Commercial Ave.
