Meetings & Events
GGSCT Night at the Ballgame - With the uncertainty of the situation and the season we are postponing our Annual Night at the Ballgame until a future time. That future time could be later this year or it could be next year. We are waiting on decisions at levels much higher than the GGSCT such as the Governor of California and Major League Baseball. We are leaving the donation box and the menu and flyer up on the site to keep you interested in the future game.
