Sebring Elks Lodge #1529 participated in the 22nd annual softball classic April 2 at the Highlands County Sports Complex in Sebring, Florida, by making a $700 donation. Jonathan Spiegel, Exalted Ruler, was asked to throw out the first pitch to start the games. This event was hosted by the Aktion Club of Highlands County, where more than 130 athletes with disabilities participated. The teams were divided into three levels based on their skills. The funds will be used to provide various sports and recreational activities for the members and others with disabilities, which in turn provides exercise and opportunities to socialize. Cindy Marshall, advisor to the Kiwanis Aktion Club, organized the tournament.
