The Huskies Bullpen Club recently received a donation from Cash Wise Foods of Owatonna, coming from a food stand fundraiser this spring. Baseball parents and volunteers worked the food stand during the Twins home opening series. Cash Wise presented a check for more than $400 to the Bullpen Club. Members of the board of directors of the bullpen club and the Youth 1st program accepted the donation.
The Bullpen Club will host a dedication of the baseball diamond at 5PM Friday at Jaycee Park. The ballpark will be named in memory of Raymond Truelson.
