In attendance were Public Works Director Rudy Garza, Commissioner Place 4 Emilio Cantu Jr. and Alton Chamber of Commerce Board President Felipe Gomez. Garza explained the mission statement for the organization was to serve young athletes, the families and the border community. He added its major effort was to provide opportunity for young athletes to achieve their maximum potential athletically.
“I would like to thank the City of Alton…for all the support they have given us,” Garza said. Garza said Rudy Garza with Public Works has also been a great help with baseball park improvements.
