Little League International Salutes the Efforts, Commitment of its Volunteers During National Volunteer Week





Dear Little League Volunteers,

In recognition of National Volunteer Week, we celebrate the opportunity and reflect on the influence that Little League volunteers have had on generations of children throughout the world.

Little League volunteers understand that “no task is too small,” and relate to the mantra - “We do what has to be done in support of the children” - regardless of the size and location of their neighborhood.

Since Little League’s founding nearly 75 years ago, volunteers have been the heart of our organization. Through the dedication, time and talents of Little League volunteers, millions of children learn about life and sport.

Whether a rural community or a big city, remarkable stories of volunteerism surround us, and each story is unique. We appreciate young volunteers, and those who have given years of their lives to Little League. With more than one million volunteers, we know there are more to come.

In this month of April, the traditional start of the baseball and softball season, I simply wanted to express my personal thanks to each and every one of you - those just starting out as volunteers in Little League, and those who have devoted decades to providing a safe, fun and healthy outlet for children around the world.

As we look forward to next season’s celebration of Little League's 75th Anniversary, please accept my best wishes for a great season in 2013!

Sincerely,

Dr. Davie Jane Gilmour

Chairman of the Little League International Board of Directors
