2019 - 2020 Capital Improvements
Happy New Year To All!
First, we would like to thank everyone for a very successful 2019 season and
congratulations to our summer, fall and senior champions.
It’s time to start getting excited for our 2020 season.
In an effort to keep everyone updated as much as possible with the
many great new things that you may or may not have noticed, below is list of
most of those things from 2019 and some exciting new plans for this 2020
Installed our new flagpole which is lit up in the night
Added a light on the tree carving which is lit up at night
Added lights on the steps leading up to the pavilion
Removed door and replaced entire front wall of the cabin which was really degrading badly and added 2 new windows and window guards.
Rewired entire interior of cabin, adding new ceiling lights, receptacles etc.
Replaced all outside receptacles with commercial grade covers and child proof receptacles
Replaced / changed 95% of lights to LED
Added accent lighting around the cabin and pavilion roofs and windows outside the cabin
All lights are now on motion sensors except for the court lights and under the pavilion
Replaced broken ladies room toilet along with some additional plumbing work inside the cabin
Applied polyurethane all the picnic tables, benches, scoreboards, bulletin board, also painted the black tables and ball holders
Won 3rd place for ‘public outside gardens’ and 2nd place for ‘environmentally sustainable gardens’ from the Norristown Garden Club
Started up the Jerry Milice Jr. Youth Invitational again, it was a big success and we will continue to do this event every year to introduce the young people in our community to the great game of bocce.
Our Annual Chasing The Cure Bocce Tournament raised
almost $9,000.00 which brings our total to date donated directly to Fox Chase Cancer Center to $94,125.00. We should all be very proud!!!
Some New Things To Look For In 2020
We are insulating along with drywalling and painting the inside of the cabin
We are installing heating and air conditioning inside the cabin
We are installing handicapped parking at the zoo end of the courts
Finishing the pavers under the pavilion
Adding sod in some areas around the pavilion and cabin
Working on plans to redo the kitchen area inside the cabin
Installing new boards around the courts and getting court #2 level again possibly at the end of the fall evening league season
We have come a long way in the 25 years of the N. B. L. and look forward to
many, many more years of great bocce, friendship, fun and of course food.span style="mso-spacerun:yes">
We will continue to do the very best we possibly can in what is and
always will be in the best interest of the league and all of it’s members.
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, ideas at all, please do not
hesitate to ask any B. O. D. at
any time or e-mail us at ‘norristownbocceleague.com’.
None of this would be possible without you our members and we look
forward to another successful 2020 year with everyone.
Again, Thank You All For Your Continued Support!!!
