Volunteers stepped up for hoops program


The elementary Community Youth Development basketball program just completed their season with an exhibition finale last week. What a great turnout by family, friends and Big Brothers/Sisters who supported and cheered on the athletes. As with most of our youth programs, it wouldn’t have happened without volunteers. Thank you, Tiffany DeWitt, for spending every week coaching our young Glacier Bears and thank you, Lori Giddings, for assisting.  Following the exhibition, everyone was treated to a pizza party provided by the generous donation from Tomi Scovill of the Parts Place and the generosity of Steve Anderson of The Klondike.  Thank you all for your support of our community’s young people.
