Sertoma Club sponsors youth T-ball league in Minot
The Minot Sertoma Club has contributed $7,500 to become the primary sponsor for the Sertoma T-ball League.
The league has 578 children signed up to play with ages ranging from three to six. Games will be played weekly at the Radio City Park and Polaris Park, starting in May and running through the end of June.
“The Sertoma Club is proud to continue our tradition of supporting and investing in the youth of our community,” club president Paul Siebert said in a press release. “Our club name, Sertoma, comes from the phrase service to mankind, and this opportunity fits perfectly into our mission. We are excited to continue our club’s good work by supporting STEAM, which is doing amazing things in Minot.”
The Sertoma T-Ball League is part of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics), a local organization spearheaded by Alli Auch. In addition to Sertoma being the league’s main sponsor, there are also 52 team sponsors. The league is currently full.
STEAM, according to its website, is an umbrella organization formed in 2017 that helps meld youth arts with science, technology, engineering and math. Make a Scene Kid’s Theatre, Minot Robotics, Youth T-ball League, Youth Kickball League and Kid’s Clay all fall under this umbrella.
The Minot Sertoma Club was organized in 1959. The club, with more than 60 members, supports numerous causes in the Minot area with a focus on speech and hearing disorders, and youth-related activities. The club’s annual fundraisers include Christmas in the Park, Beer Fest and the Celebrate Sound Walk.
