CaM 4 Wt SUl'VtVe "I Will Survive" is more than just a Gloria Gaynor disco song. It is an anthem to anyone that has lived through life's struggles, challenges and North Dakota winters. It has been a year since I made the migration home to Park River and "I DID SURVIVE". Spring is hinting at a comeback and the circle has been completed. With spring comes the planning for Baseball, Softball, Tennis, Soccer and splashing in the Les Kelly Memorial Pool. Baseball and Softball sign ups for all ages are scheduled for April 4, 5pm - 7pm at the PR Community Room at 514 Briggs Ave. A Park River Baseball Booster organizational meeting is scheduled for March 29th at 7pm at the PR Community Room.
