PR-PARKS .COM Ma e ha From the song made famous by Barbara Streisand and recently by the cast of Glee, Don't Rain on nay Parade was in the minds of many people on July 4th. As much as we need the rain, in my mind after weeks of preparation was the reality that we are not in control. As much as try to plan, plan and plan to plan, we have to keep good thoughts in our minds or it could wash away our thn, traditions and tbr some, good fortune. The Fourth of July is kind of the halftime show of summer for Parks and Rec. We look at what we have accomplished and what we have to do in the second half to feel the success of our summertime endeavors. In the first half we have been quite conmned with our baseball and softball programs. Our coaches, Lesa Whaley (Girls 12u Softball), Brent Zimmemaan (Babe Ruth and 12u Cal Ripkin), Jed Sullivan (10u Boys, T-Ball, 12u Cal Ripkin), Allison Olimb (Girls 16u Softball) and Jesse Irvine (12 Cal Ripkin) have done a fantastic job of guiding our youth to successful seasons. The league tournaments will be happening this week with the 12u Girls Softball on Wed, July 1 lth and the Boys 10u on Tuesday July 10th and Thursday July 1 lth. Both Tournaments will be held in Park River. Watch for more specific information. Our Red, White and Blue Sand Volleyball Toumainent was a success with the "Bumping Uglies" taking the $300 prize money. We also hosted a Tennis Block Party in May to provide kids with an opportunity to learn some of the basics of the game. We now have Racquets and balls available to rent or purchase at the PR Swimming Pool for those interested in trying the sport of tennis. Coming up in the second halt, we have a Gymnastics Acro camp, a Youth Soccer camp and Pop Warner football. Watch our website for more details.
