Souvenir Caps!

A long time ago, the committee wanted to honor the Little League’s All-Star game players with official July 4th caps.  In 1985, the committee started selling them to the public.  Over the years they have become a treasured collectible.  The original price of $5.00 is still kept, to allow the most a chance to help the committee raise funds.  They are purchased directly from the manufacturer to maximize the profit, just like Wal-Mart.  You may purchase at Memorial Park on Friday, July 2, or along the parade route on Saturday, July 3.  The chances of getting one of these after the parade is slim.  Here is this years’ edition:

Rubber ducks and wild game.  One might say this is…….out of the box.
