Gordon's Crow About Success 2009!
Joe "The Flash" Gordon Inducted into the National
Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY 26 July
2009!
Nine-time MLB All Star Joe Gordon went to the
World Series six times and was part of the winning team
five times. He was voted MVP in 1942 edging out Ted
Williams' Triple Crown that year for the honor! He still
holds the AL record for number of HR for a 2nd Baseman
and is considered one of the all time great defensive
players of the game. A humble man according to his
daughter Judy, he rarely talked about the game,
preferring to steer the topic to other sports and
interests.  She says he wouldn't have had much to say
about the honor, but would have been very pleased! We
are thrilled that our kinsman's legacy will be preserved
for future generations at the Hall of Fame.

    Allison Baker's (AKA Cat), daughter of Geof & Beverly
    Baker, MYSL U19 Soccer Team played in the Sun
    Cup Tournament Finals match. Cat plays as a
    goalkeeper for her squad. After two full halves of
    regulation play, the score ended NIL - NIL. The game
    went to two 10 minute over time halves were Cat made a
    couple of great saves, keeping the score knotted at NIL -
    NIL. It came down to Penalty Kicks to decide the
    champions. Cat's opposition was the first to take a PK.
    They tried to shoot low to the post to score. Cat made an
    amazing full stretch low fingertip save to block the shot.
Standing behind her goal were the two U19 Boys teams which had just finished their championship
match. When she made that save, the entire group behind her goal erupted with cheers! You could
see the wind come out of the sails of her opponents at midfield as they realized Cat had full range of
goal with that save. They tried to shoot high for the corners, but to no avail.
Cat's team won the
championship with the final PK score of 3 - 1
as the referee blew the final whistle in Round 4 of
the PK's as he knew they could not beat Cat's team. Cat's entire team (21 players) rushed the field
and tackled her to show their appreciation!!!!
Congratulations Cat on a phenomenal season and
championship match!

    Congratulations to Aaron Todd on receiving the Sons of the

    Aaron also received a second recognition certificate of athletic

    Congratulations to Aaron Todd on being named as Drum Captain
    for the Hermitage Marching Panthers for the 2009-2010 school

    Congratulations to Lois Todd who has received the
    James Cash Penney Award for Community Service
    for 2009. Lois' work with the Hermitage High School
    JROTC and House of Gordon USA have made a positive
    impact on the community. Chaperoning the cadets at
    competitions, field trips, community service projects and
    fund raisers has been a lot of fun, but also set a great
    example. The cadets are required to complete a certain
    number of hours in community service, and with her help
    the JROTC Raiders Team took on as one of their
    projects the Relay for Life. Not only did they log time
    running, but also community service doing many of the
tasks at hand throughout the day. They also raised money for cancer research! The James Cash
Penney Foundation made a cash donation to the Hermitage JROTC in her name. This is the fifth year
Lois has been honored. (Pictured above: the Hermitage JROTC on a visit to Quantico Marine Corps
Base -- HMX1 static display.)
