Lost and Found - May Edition: Watch Me

Thankfully, it's been a slow season on the lost and found front, compared to previous years where large and small parts of docks, boats, and kayaks and canoes have strayed from their homes. But we need our readers' eagle eyes to find the watch of Lisa Strolin Smith. From Lisa:"

"I seem to have lost my watch on Thursday evening, either at the baseball game at the Fish & Game Club OR at Sticks & Stones (I checked with Gary but it has not turned up).  This watch is really sentimental to me.  If you happen to be able to post this somewhere on social media, I would appreciate it.  Thanks so much".
