2nd Annual Bruce Howell Memorial Free-Throw Contest
Players of all ages and abilities are invited to compete in this exciting contest to be held on Saturday, February 24th at 1pm in the gym at the Community Center. Bruce was one of the best custodians of all time to work at the Community Center. He had a special way with the kids in the gym playing basketball -- welcoming everyone, giving them tips, and showing them the way. In his honor we'll gather and have a fun time in the gym and give out prizes in a few age groups. The event is free, but we'll be taking donations for the American Cancer Society to aid in the fight to end cancer. See you in the gym!
