Baseball supporters pleased PINCHER CREEK (Special) Pincher Creek Baseball Association had a successful financial year. For the first time in many years the association has fin- ished the season in the black with a bank balance of SB07. This is due largely to the un- tiring efforts of the executive and all people who helped in the concession booth at the games, and also to the people who sold booster and raffle tick- els. The various amounts realized from these projects are: con- cession S416; raffle S29; boost- er tickets, The books were audited by Price, Deering, Prilchard and Company. Interested people may see this report if they wish. A copy will be sent to service clubs.
