American Legion World Series


Aldersgate will once again serve as a team host for the American Legion World Series.  Our team will be the Western Region champion. We hope that our entire congregation can participate in this fun ministry opportunity!   Please note several important dates and opportunities:

August 7 or 8: Welcoming our team to Shelby!
We would love to have a big group welcome our team as they arrive at the hotel (mall area).  The day and time is not yet confirmed and volunteers in this area will be updated via text message as the schedule is set.  All you have to do is smile, wave, and welcome the players and families to our community.

During the Tournament, we are in need of volunteers to offer hospitality to our team in many ways including restocking snacks and water each day, helping the team to get to various locations in our community, providing a fun “day off”  for our team on August 12, and most importantly attending baseball games to support our guests!  Aldersgate Day at the park will be the opening game on Thursday, August 10 at 10:00 am. Join us as we sit with our host team’s fans and cheer on the Western Region Champs! It is also Senior Citizen Day and all adults over 55 receive free admission. All guests are asked to bring 16 oz plastic jars of peanut butter for the Lenora Neal Senior Center food collection drive.
