Sunshine kids return to Albion

The local minor baseball season kicks off with the annual Ridge Meadows celebrity baseball game at the Albion Sports field Sunday, April 15, at 2 p.m. This year, the Mighty Pirates, a team of physically and mentally challenged children from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows will be taking on the Sunshine Foundation - Dreams for Kids All-Star team. Local dignitaries and representatives from the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Fire Departments as well as the Ridge Meadows RCMP will add some muscle to the Sunshine Team. To compliment the game, the celebrated Maple Ridge Concert Band will also be stirring up the crowd with some of their great ball park music.

Also appearing will be the Shiner Clowns, and the outstanding Sgt. Dave Smith and his equestrian team and K-9 unit.

The Sunshine Foundation – Dreams for Kids is a national children’s charity which helps dreams come true for children challenged with serious or life-threatening illnesses.
