Boys & Girls Club cancels T-ball season


The Boys & Girls Club of Boone County announced it would cancel its T-ball season today.

“We appreciate all our members and came to this decision with the best interest of our families, volunteers, staff and community in mind,” Ken Kibbe, athletic director of the club, stated.

Participants who registered for the season prior to the announcement will have the following options concerning their registration fee.

– Donate the fee to the COVID-19 Emergency Meal Program, which will be a tax-deductible gift. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the club has been serving meals to families in need in Boone County. Since March when the program began, the club reports having served 10,356 meals. Donors will receive a tax letter from Katie Reasoner, the club’s resource development director.

– Credit your account for future club leagues and/or membership.

– Request a refund

Responses are to be reported to Kibbe at [email protected], regarding the fee options. According to Kibbe, registration fees will automatically be donated to the club’s COVID-19 meal program if not designated otherwise by June 1.

The club is, however, opening on June 1 for summer camp. For more information on registration, new restrictions and precautions, visit website at
