Holland commended the club for a great award-winning year. The club received the first-place award in the Burbank Public Library's Annual Trivia Challenge and other Civitan District Awards for its continued support of BCR "a place to grow" and the annual Baseball Jamboree for more than 1,000 young Hap Minor League baseball players. The latter was co-sponsored with the Foothill Civitan Club and the Burbank Park, Recreation and Community Services Department. These events were followed by the Ponytail Jamboree for as many as 1,000 softball players where hotdogs and punch were served to all the ballplayers for a very memorable event.
