Lorton has been involved in gymnastics since she was in the third grade. She began as one of the Bruin Hi-Liters. When her daughter was old enough, she started gymnastics in Fargo. "Through Meghan, I learned a lot," Lorton said of her daughter's training with F-M Acro. "She was in the parent taught group." Lorton said that they encouraged parents to work ith their children, so the parents, as well as the children knew how to perform the moves correctly. When she and her family moved back to the area, Lorton wanted to bring her love of gymnastics back with her. For years she was met with closed doors and unreturned phone calls until Todd Kjelland approached her. Kjelland and Lorton came up with a plan to form an organization with Park River Parks and*Rec, as an administrator. "lve learned a lot," Kjelland said about starting the organization. The board was formed with Lorton as president, Mike Lorton as vice president, Angie Sctuoeder as secretary, Kjelland as treasurer, Tammy Rostvet as a director, and Joleen Vigen as a director. Lorton said there are five openings on the board, so as they proceed, anyone who may be interested can contact her about joining. Lorton will becoaching the acro teams starting this fall. She recently became a certified with USA Gymnastics as a Level 1 coach, which covers the fundamentals of gymnastics. She said the acro teams be divided into two groups based on age to start. As they progress, she said, they would be able to determine Acro 1 and Acro 2 based on skill. The program is open to children between the ages of 5 to 18 years old from Park River, Pisek, Hoople, Edinburg, Minto, Fordville, Lankin, Gilby, Inkster and Forest River. The organization currently is trying tO raise money for equipment, insurance, and other start up costs, but they are close to realizing the dream Lorton started two years ago. Lotron said the meet and greet will have refreshments and give the community the chance to ask questions as well as let kids who are interested see what it is all about. "Kids can tell if they are going to like something," Lorton said. Kids also will get the chance to sign up for a three-day summer camp being hosted by the Park River Acro team, which will be coached by the Bruin Hi-Lighters. They will be bringing their equipment and coaches to Park River June 20 to 22. Deadline for registering for the camp would be June 15. "As soon as I got the yes [for the camp] it all snowballed," she said with a smile. "I'm so excited." For more information about the Park River Limelites Acro Team, the summer camp, or donating to the program, contact the board members listed.
