SPRING LAKE HEIGHTS — The Tri-Shore Little League started its 2022 season with its annual parade on April 30, marking the first year the players have marched through the borough for the event since 2019.
Approximately three hundred players participated in the parade with several hundred spectators; they left Spring Lake Heights Elementary School and proceeded north on Route 71 to Allaire Road.
The parade then proceeded west on Allaire Road to John Robertson Park, finishing at Elmer J. Oberto Memorial Field. There was an Opening Day ceremony after the parade.
Vincent Daino, president of the Tri-Shore Little League, offered opening remarks for the ceremony at Elmer J. Oberto Memorial Field.
“Good morning, players, coaches, volunteers, parents, and distinguished guests. Welcome to Tri-Shore Little League Opening Day 2022. This is the first time we have been able to get together since 2019, and what a beautiful day it is,” said Mr. Daino.
“Since we came together last, Tri-Shore has grown. We welcome the communities of Belmar, Avon and Lake Como into the Tri-Shore family. We are thrilled to have you.”
The parade was made possible through the work of many volunteers, including the Board of Directors for Tri-Shore, the police, fire and EMS departments from Spring Lake Heights.
Mr. Daino took a moment to thank many individuals, including Councilman Christopher Wilms, Sea Girt Councilman Mark Clemmensen, Avon Mayor Ed Bonanno and Commissioner John Magrini and Lake Como Councilwoman Heather Albala-Doyle.
