The Henderson Baseball Association (H.B.A. from here forward) is having its comedy night on Jan. 7 at the Brass Top Hall. We are learning many valuable lessons through this entire process. One of those lessons is letting people know how important it is that they let us know if they are coming to our event on Jan. 7. The response to the Silent Auction online has been tremendous, and a big thanks to Skeddy Nagel and Jeff Steinborn for their contributions. We've heard many people indicate that they will be joining us for our event on Jan. 7, but it's important that they call the Brass Top (507.248.3743) for their reservation to ensure that we prepare enough food. The lesson we've learned is that we have to be much more proficient in getting a head count for our event. If you plan on joining us please call and arrange for your seat. If you're not but know someone who is, please gently tell them to do the same. We have been overwhelmed by the auction donations, the charter memberships and the enthusiasm we've received to get ourselves off the ground. Trust that every effort will be made by the H.B.A. to give back to the community what has been given to it.
