Go Fund Me Campaign - Help Revitalize the OHMBA Springbrook Shack
Submitted By Jesse Edmunds on Thu 10 28, 21
Hey Bengals Family,

Please check out the following link for more details on our Go Fund Me Campaign: https://gofund.me/dda602d2 









For years, the building simply known as 'The Shack' has been a vital part of the Orangeville & Headwaters Minor Baseball Association operations. The building is 'owned' by the Association (while it resides on the French School Board property, with the diamonds being maintained by the Town), and it provides a space for equipment/uniform storage, snack bar operations, and restrooms for our members playing games at the Springbrook diamonds.
 
As our Association continues to grow, The Shack is in need of significant upgrades and improvements to allow us to continue to serve our members.
 
  • Our storage area needs a major overhaul to allow for more equipment storage space. 
  • After having sat for two years since the pandemic started, and years of wear and tear from the hard water, our bathrooms are in need of an upgrade including replacing fixtures and installing tile to help us keep things clean and sanitized.
  • Our snack bar area needs some upgrades, and we would like to find space within this area to start celebrating the accomplishments of the OHMBA. Somewhere to display championship banners/plaques/trophies, and Hall of Fame accolades. We'd also like to be able to start offering some Bengals SWAG Sales from The Shack.
 
Unlike the facilities at some of the other Town Parks that are serviced by Town Operations, The Shack is supported by the league and it's volunteers. All operating costs/maintenance/insurance are the responsibility of the OHMBA. Due to the growth of our Association over the past few years, the OHMBA has been paying for additional storage space at a separate facility in town. It would be financially and operationally beneficial to our league and volunteers to be able to bring all of our supplies back under one roof.
 
We're hoping the community can help us raise some funds to make some much needed upgrades to this building. We'll also be looking for local contractors that may be willing to volunteer their time. If you're interested in helping with this project, please contact our Admin [email protected] .
 
All time and donations are greatly appreciated. Every little bit helps!
 
Sincerely,
 
OHMBA Executive Committee
