Dear Newtown Edgmont Little League Families,


Since 1952, NELL has been a second home to our children and families.  It has been a place for our children to develop a love of baseball, learn the value of teamwork and good sportsmanship, and become a part of a close-knit community.   For nearly 70 years, we have had the good fortune of providing one of the best Little League complexes in the state - countless volunteer hours and community support have made it all possible.


NELL is ready to open an exciting new chapter in our story and enhance an already great facility. NELL will be ready to unveil a new snack bar (including brand new bathrooms) in advance of the 2021 Spring season! With the new amenity centerpiece project underway, we're calling on all past and present NELL families to help us complete a master plan of renovations.


Field 1 Renovation: A crucial piece of our long- term planning includes the renovation of Field 1’s infrastructure and appearance.  The outfield fence needs to be removed and replaced, new bleachers installed for the safety and comfort of our spectators, and new dugouts and home plate backstop for improved player safety.  While some of these improvements are cosmetic in nature, most will help lower future maintenance costs and improve player and spectator safety.  Although NELL had intended to fundraise and plan for this project over the course of several years, the need to improve Field 1 has become more pressing.  Recently, Little League Baseball bestowed a great honor on NELL – hosting the 2023 Pennsylvania State Championships.

 
Our first initiative to raise funds for the Field 1 renovation, we are asking our NELL families to consider purchasing a green fence picket to include a personalized & engaved yellow placard ($100.00). The picket will be made of a composite material, which will last for the next fifty-plus years!  The 4" x 8" personalized placard will be affixed to the picket, and it too will last for decades.  The placard may carry any message you like.  It can be a tribute to a NELL player, coach, or team, a thank you from your family or a supportive ad for your business.  To complete Field 1’s fence, it will take approx. 1,100 pickets!  If every family purchases just one, not only will NELL be able to replace the entire fence, but it will have additional money to put toward the other projects in the master plan.

 
The attached flyer provides more detail and contains ordering instructions and sample placards.  For convenience, orders can be placed online at https://sites.google.com/view/nell-picket-sponsors/home.  If you have any additional questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to email us at [email protected]
 

To further our fundraising activity, we are promoting our affiliation with AmazonSmile - the charitable giving arm of our favorite online retailer. Super easy to use in the app or online, simply shop at smile.amazon.com/ch/23-3023517 and AmazonSmile will donate to Newtown Edgmont Little League Baseball Inc, at no cost to you. Please give it a try, every purchase you make can positively impact NELL.

 
Thank you for reading this message and considering all of the above. We're excited to accomplish all of this with community support and make a lasting impact on our great league. Let’s make our field of dreams possible!
