On Saturday, June 16 at 11am NCS will present the 2017 and 2018 Mike Jennings Award to two well deserving individuals. This presentation will take place inbetween the two Pony League games on field #4. The Mike Jennings Award is given to past board members who have put forth untiring efforts, outstanding service, dedication to excellence and concern for others in behalf of the young people of North Columbus.
Long before our NCIL Pony Boys merger, when many of today's representatives didn't even exist, a combined Pony League program originated on these same Ridgeview fields. Boys 13 thru 15 years of age, regardless of what side of the river they lived joined together to form this league. Many cross rival friendships were formed on these very fields. Our main stay umpire during those days was Mike Jennings. Mike was a friend of every boy in the league and didn't know a stranger in the program. He was often observed flying one of his many colorful kites down in the parking lot.
Mike will join us today to present these two annual awards. Please make it a point to stop by field #4 at 11am to witness this special presentation and make it a point to say hello to "Big Mike".
