The 400 member Lee Sportsmen’s Association (LSA) claims that it is the oldest sportsmen’s association in Berkshire County and is reputed to be the second oldest one in the state. As part of its 100-year celebration, it is putting on two fund raisers. The first is a Baseball Day at Wahconah Park next Sunday, July 1. The LSA’s fundraising committee is selling the first 200 tickets, ($5 for game only or $18 which includes a pre-game picnic). In exchange the Pittsfield Suns baseball team is setting up a clinic for kids aged 14 and under to gain tips from the semi-pros. You are encouraged to purchase your tickets through the LSA Fundraising Committee. Tickets will be available at the skeet house or by calling Mary Smith at 413-243-2710. Additionally, you may purchase tickets directly from the Pittsfield Suns website at pittsfieldsunstickets.com, using the Group Password “sunsandguns”. Ticket sales will end on June 29.
The second event, to be held at the LSA clubhouse on July 28, will be a Murder Mystery Comedy by Brickroad Productions and a 3-course dinner catered by Other Brother Darryl’s Seafood. While you dine on a fabulous meal, you will be entertained by a live performance of “Gangsters in Love”. Tickets are $40 and are limited to 110 tickets due to seating accommodations, so buy early. Contact Jody Decker at 413-243-1853 for tickets and more information. Ticket sales end on July 21.
The celebration day will be September 29 and there will be more information on that in a future column. *****
