Fundraiser honors Jim Cannon
On Sunday, Oct. 16, friends and family of the late Jim Cannon, a Garrison resident and school board member who died earlier this year, will introduce CannonBall, or “softball with a twist,” at the Garrison School softball field on Route 9D.
The fast-paced game starts at 1 p.m. and ends when the last player leaves the field. Teams are as large as the crowd wants them to be, there are more turns to bat, innings move faster and players can exit the game whenever they want.
Organizers hope CannonBall will become an annual fundraiser for pancreatic cancer research and to assist patients’ families with medical expenses.
