The Northside Spring Season has officially begun!

Thank you to all the Board Members, Volunteers, Northside Players and Families that made our Opening Day Ceremony fun!  Cheryl LaRosa did a fantastic job coordinating the day along with Alice Riccabona, Northside President.  Everyone appreciated the location change to indoors!

What a thrill it was to have as our Special Guest, Brett Johnson of the JMU Dukes and Charlottesville Tom Sox ... a former Northside Player! 

Dave Alley and John Raymond kept the ceremony moving as they emceed!  Thank you to Chris Clarke for setting up the sound system that allowed everyone to be heard.
