DCO February Breakfast Meeting is a Triple Play!!

Did you know the song “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” is a 1908 Tin Pan Alley song written by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer, although neither of its authors OO8eazkQhad attended a game prior to writing the song? Why should you care?  Because baseball, specifically Toronto Blue Jay’s baseball, is the feature at this month’s DCO breakfast. Staying in the same ballpark, our spotlight will be on the Dunedin Youth League. Speaking of ballparks, Florida Auto Exchange, sponsor of Dunedin’s own ballpark, will be sponsoring the breakfast this month. Talk about a triple play!Continue reading
