Volunteers essential to youth hoops


March 31, 2011

Thank you, Ralph Swinton, Sarah Swinton, Gary Stigen, Ray Chapin, and James Sage for all your help with Community Youth Development junior high basketball. The programs would not be possible without your countless volunteer hours. I also appreciate your enthusiasm, which makes it possible to attend two Juneau tournaments and your hard work in planning one local tournament. Thank you to the parents as well for shuttling to and from practice and down to Juneau for tournaments. Having your children in activities is extremely beneficial but can, unfortunately, be complicated for working parents! Thank you, Tiana Taylor and Lori Giddings, for your help through the main school office. I also want to thank Brian O’Riley for his work with the 3rd-5th grades during October, November, and December. Brian O’Riley just started junior high track this week too. If you would like to register your child, please stop by the school office. Stay tuned for CYD soccer and our summer hiking program with Alaska Mountain Guides.
