2020 HLL Annual Meeting and Board Elections 9/20/20
Hello HLL Community. There will be several current HLL Board members completing their 3-year term this fall. Please consider stepping up to help lead and guide HLL each month as a Board member--three year voluntary commitment.
The HLL Annual Meeting and board elections will be held on Sunday September 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the downstairs of the Hershey Italian Lodge. Covid mitigation strategies are required if attending the meeting.
Any volunteers interested in serving on the HLL Board should send a short bio and your interest in serving on the board ASAP to Matt Coulter, the HLL Secretary.
Hello Hershey Little League community members,
With the news of the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to inform you that your Hershey Little League (HLL) Board is taking this situation very seriously. We are monitoring the situation closely, and as a member of Little League International, we are following their recommendations, and the guidelines set by the World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the PA public health department including guidance from Dauphin County and our DTSD.
As such, we encourage all those participating in the HLL – including players, volunteers, families, and fans – to follow the best practices as outlined by the CDC. These currently include: washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (if soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer); avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; and avoid close contact with people who are sick. We also encourage you to limit close, physical contact with others (including shaking hands—players and coaches could substitute tipping caps/visors instead of shaking hands at the end of a practice or game); and make sure all players have their own water/drink bottles and are not sharing.
As a small, community-based Board, HLL will continue to consult with our County and Local authorities regarding recommendations and best practices on how to proceed with large gatherings of people, etc. and will update everyone with any changes in HLL programming or activities using an extreme abundance of caution as our guide.
Finally, if you or your child are ill; have a fever, cough, or respiratory condition; have a compromised immune system; are in any other group that may be at an increased risk of contracting a virus like the coronavirus; or have recently traveled to a country listed on the CDC’s Risk Assessment by Country, we encourage you or your child to refrain from Hershey Little League-related activities until cleared by your healthcare provider.
Thank you for your commitment to HLL, the safety and best interest of our children and your ongoing support to both.
