Edmonson Voice Staff Report
Parks and Rec Program Director Greg Hudson gave an updated report of what his office had been up to over the past few weeks at fiscal court on Tuesday.
He said that soccer season is still ongoing, and is scheduled to end on October 22, with a skills competition to come afterwards. He also noted that while only 31 kids signed up, parents and the young athletes have thoroughly enjoyed it and the program had gone very smoothly.
He also said that little league basketball applications will taken through this Saturday from 10am-12noon at the Parks and Rec Office below the Health Department. Open “tryouts” will be held soon to let coaches see the types of players that will be available so teams can be picked fairly. He also reported that the Baseball/softball board is working to make improvements in the program for next spring, with additions like batting cages and nets.
He also announced a couple of upcoming events, a two mile run/one mile walk that will be held on Oct 29. He added that he appreciated the public’s positive reaction and comments to recent improvements in parks' facilities, trails, and maintenance.
He closed his report by updating the court on the Parks and Rec sponsored "Halloween on the Square," normally "Halloween in the Park." Several businesses are already signed up to participate and a local church is donating hot dogs, while other donors are offering chips, drinks, games, and more. The event is scheduled to start at 4pm, with vendors and businesses setting up at 4:30pm. Kids will be able to Trick-or-treat from 5pm-7pm and the event will be held on Halloween, Monday, Oct 31. He noted that vendors must bring their own tables and chairs.
