BALDWIN CITY, Kansas – For the fifth-straight holiday season, members of the Baker University softball program volunteered at the annual Lawrence Parks and Recreation Special Populations Holiday Party on Dec. 5 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.
Baker softball athletes and coaches again provided fellowship and fun with the members of the LPRD Special Populations group.
This annual event is something that not only the Wildcats look forward to each year, but as does members of the Special Pops group.
"The LPRD Special Pops party is one of my favorite days of the entire year for our team," said Baker head softball coach Jamie Stanclift.
"We talk a lot within our team about the importance of being a great teammate, spreading positive contagious energy, and always giving more than we take. This event shows our student athletes how they can also be a great team player in their communities and shows them the positive impact their service makes on the lives of others."
Out of all of the monthly Monday night events the Special Pops group assembles for, this holiday party has become the highest attended event on record. All of those in attendance enjoyed an abundance of events on the night including a dance party and visit with Santa.
