Kickball tourney April 7
Registration starts at noon at Meador Park Softball Complex with kick-off at 1 p.m.
Meador Park, Phelps and Rountree Neighborhoods have been challenged by the Delaware Neighborhood Association to a little fun. There is a catch: Delaware is sure they can field a better kickball team than any of the rest of us, trouble is they may be right. All we need to prove them wrong is to put a better team on the field. Nothing to that, right? We only need coaches, players, and a cheering section. We do have a copy of the rules, a date, time and place. Well, at least that is a start.
Players can be from 8 (under 18 need parents present, giving permission) to 80. Meador Park welcomes all comers (any neighborhood) to our team. If we get more players than we need for a team, no problem, we will rotate players in and out of the game. Ringers are welcome and needed.
We are going to have a little music (no big amps please). Bring your instrument and be there. Bring your appetite! We are going to have hamburgers and hotdogs with the trimmings. Donations will be accepted.
The Springfield Greene Park Board is a co-sponsor for this event; providing the fields, the necessary field preparation and some equipment. We are soliciting financial sponsorships. If you are interested in contributing, please contact MPNAMO@yahoo.com
AdScene – Yes that wonderful little bundle of advertisements wrapped in plastic and placed in our front yards, garden beds, or sometimes in our driveways on a weekly basis.
In the Meador Park neighborhood, we are looking for a few heroes.These are the people who will JUST PICK THEM UP. When you take a little stroll, just take a few of those awful supermarket plastic bags to use as a “glove.” A few of us have discovered these things are heavy once they get wet but the removal of them really improves our streetscape. One neighbor has been keeping several blocks cleared of nasty paper mush. The first trip out maybe a child’s wagon would be helpful to get the bounty home.
How about it? JUST PICK THEM UP.
At our April 3 meeting, Springfield Police Officer Mark Priebe will discuss the much-requested Neighborhood Watch Program. Officer Jacob Boomgaarden and the Springfield Fire Department will also be with us to present current statistics and answer questions.
School will be out by our June 5 meeting and we’ll have a new location. We’ll announce it on Facebook as soon as we know.
