Joanna and Families, My thoughts and prayers are with you. I remember the love and nurturing given to our children in the Chester Youth Baseball under the leadership of so many of which Emilio "Moose", Joanna and our neighbor the late Willie McKinzie and his wife Dora worked with our children. Also, the work done in the Concession Stand to off set expenses. Times, I must say were different for our children. Thank you to Joanna and Families for investing in over two hundred children.(The Chester Panthers Football) Thank you Charles K.Thompson, Coaches and Staff and Board Members for your dedication. Participant and Parent, Mary L. Barley
