BEAUMONT, Texas - Calling all Junior Cardinals Club members: We have an event just for you on Sunday!
The Lamar athletic department will host the Junior Cardinals Spring Festival prior to Sunday's Southland Conference baseball game between Lamar and Houston Baptist at Vincent-Beck Stadium. The event, which runs from noon until 1 p.m., features food, inflatables and an appearance by Lamar's ever-popular mascot, Big Red. There will be free pizza at the conclusion of the event.
The event is free to all Junior Cardinal Club members. In addition, each club member can bring along a friend for free as well.
Registration tables will be set up for those wishing to join the Junior Cardinal Club for next season. Those signing up on Sunday will receive a $5 discount off of the normal $25 membership fee. All youngsters registering on Sunday receive a membership bag that includes a Lamar drawstring backpack, a Junior Cardinals T-shirt jersey, a Junior Cardinals titanium necklace, a lanyard and an official membership badge.
Junior Cardinals members receive a free general admission ticket to all home Lamar athletic events. They also receive a birthday card from Big Red, quarterly newsletters, and invitations to festivals in the fall and spring and Big Red's birthday party in the winter.
The club is open to all kids who are in the sixth grade or below as of August. For more information, call Stephen McKenzie at (409) 880-2278, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
