Gratitude

Editor:

My name is Barrett Motter, and I was a member of the PEFYA Majors baseball team that played in the Dixie Youth League World Series this summer. On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the community members and local businesses who supported our team’s travel to Ruston, Louisiana, as we represented Prince Edward County and the Town of Farmville.

Our team was the first Majors baseball team from Prince Edward County to qualify for the World Series in over 50 years! During our fundraising efforts I had many conversations with folks who knew someone who played on that team, played on that team themselves, or just wanted to reminisce about their time with the great sport of baseball.

With your support, our team created our own memories, strengthened friendships, and took part in an event few baseball players from our area have had the opportunity to experience. It was an honor to represent this beautiful town as a member of the PEFYA Majors baseball team.
