NK Little League Diamond Jubilee is Saturday

POULSBO — North Kitsap Little League celebrates its 60th season Saturday with the Diamond Jubilee.

The morning and early afternoon will feature competitions among current players as a season-ending fundraising campaign. At 4:30 p.m. the Challengers Division, along with players from the Majors softball teams, will play a game on A field. Challengers games are played two or three times a season.

There will be an evening of food and music. Juanito’s Taco Shop will serve tacos. Hood Canal Nurseries has sponsored a DJ, and Central Market and Pepsi will provide drinks.

Children’s activities are planned, and the coaches will face off in a Hit-Run-Throw competition in the evening. Local merchants have donated items for raffle and winners will be drawn during the celebration.

Juanito’s and Little League will make donations to Ian Gunnell’s Positive Fight Mode and Caring for Carmen to show their continued support for two local children being treated for cancer.

NKLL has dedicated this season to Ian and Carmen.

The Little League is also still looking for former players from the 1950s to attend the event and share memories. North Kitsap Little League began in the early 1950s, when World War II veteran Art Michelsen established a charter in Poulsbo.
