PR-PARKS. COM Back to school, BACK to school, BACK TO SCHOOL. What does that mean for a parks and rec guy? It means transition. Moving from a non-stop agenda to a manageable one. Another week and all will seem so quiet, cahn and lonely. The summer can be hectic with day to day operations with the pool, baseball, softball, volleyball, 4th of July, combined with camps for tennis, basketball, baseball, volleyball and gymnastics to name a few. The feeling of August is mixed for lne. On one hand it is relief, but on the other it is simply a process of grief. An emotion that is a natural healing process/br loss. A few weeks of withdrawl on the mower to collect my thoughts of what has passed. I will miss all the familiar daily faces as they leave to explore a new life experience called collage or back to their thmiliar school routines. August does bring the smell of football to the warm din air though. Perhaps that is only an analogy only an ex-tbotball player can grasp, perhaps the smell of harvest is more widely accepted terminology. Either way, the cooler nights bring relief" and a new energy to the possibilities of what the rest of the year may bring. At Parks and Rec this means Pop Warner Football, the rite of passage of 5th and 6th graders to experience the full contact sport known as American football. Full pads like the players on TV, real one on one tackling and touchdowns is the moment that all kids dream perfecting the touchdown victory dance. Sunday August 26th at 7pm will be a mandatory parent and coaches meeting at city hall to discuss the rules and format of this season's Pop Warner Program. Sign-ups and equipment distribution will tbllow the meeting. This year's success depends strongly on parent participation with coaching practices and game days. if you would like to volunteer your time as a coach please contact Todd at Reach Kjelland at - 701 284 6005 or p Gate City Bank donates more than $300,000 to area groups PARK RIVER, N.D. l In the tion, American Foundation fbr Sui- months of March through June, cide Prevention, American Heart Gate City Bank donated more than Association, Campus Crusade Ibr $300,000 to area organizations as Christ, Fellowship of Christian part of its commitment to support Athletes, Fire Academy of ND, commLmities and causes.
