It was an overcast day on Saturday, April 9th in Rising Sun, but that didn’t stop the thousands of baseball fans from taking part in the 2011 Opening Day Parade and Ceremony Celebration! Blue Dot proudly supports the Rising Sun Little League Organization, which gives children and adults of all ages the opportunity to play both baseball and softball during the spring and summer.
The Blue Dot mascot helped kick off the parade in style as he gave hugs and high fives to hundreds of kids. He continued to entertain members of the community long after the parade ended in the stadium. Staff members at Blue Dot and the Tigers softball team handed out candy and miniature replicas of the mascot. In addition, the parade ended with a few Blue Dot vans and trucks.
“It was a wonderful feeling to see huge smiles on faces of both children and adults! There was so much energy, and the kids were running around playing, grabbing candy, and laughing. There’s nothing like America’s pastime to bring out the youth in everyone, and it was an honor for our company to partake in that,” said Mitch Linman, Residential Service Manager at Blue Dot.
Blue Dot looks forward to being part of the celebration next year and will continue to support the Rising Sun Little League Organization.
