NCSO vs Property Appraiser Office
On Saturday April 4th the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office and Nassau County property Appraiser’s Office squared off in a softball game to help raise awareness and funds to benefit Nassau County charities. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), Katie Ride for Life, United Way, and the James Page Scholarship Fund all benefited from the event’s proceeds. The game was played at the Yulee Sports Complex at the second annual Nassau County Government Day.
This second annual affair included refreshments sponsored by Farm Bureau Insurance and Coca-Cola. Events also included a bounce house and activities for kids, an Easter egg hunt, and many other exciting activities. The Easter egg hunt was coordinated by members of the Nassau County School Board and featured over 1,000 eggs with prizes inside.
Besides NCSO and the Property Appraisers Office participating, other county officials served in various roles. County Commissioners Pat Edwards, Danny Leeper, Steve Kelley, and George Spicer served as umpires, Tax Collector John Drew, Commissioner Junior Boatwright, and Judge Robert Foster served as game announcers, and Florida State Senator Aaron Bean served as the emcee.
The game was stopped in the bottom of the 3rd inning due to severe weather with the Sheriff’s Office in the lead 4-3.
