KPRD will be going on Thursday, March 23rd leaving the recreation center at 8AM! Tickets are on sale for $40 per ticket. This includes your transportation and admission into the show.

The Special Olympics Unified Sports Basketball Assessment games are coming to Keene on Saturday, March 11. Over 40 teams are invading the Monadnock area to demonstrate their skills, courage and joy. These teams and athletes have been practicing for months and will be ready to play preliminary games before heading to Derry in early April for the State Tournament.
With 5 courts of action all day, I am looking for officials to donate their time and help provide a quality sports environment for the athletes.
Are you willing to assist and officiate? The game formats will be as such:
2 – 16 minute halves – stop time last 4 minutes
4 – 30 second time outs (2 per half)
The games will begin at 9:00 on 6 courts and run until 12:00. Lunch will be provided and games resume at 1:00 and finished between 3:30 and 4:00.
I need your assistance in making this event a success. Call me at 357-9829 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please commit to the day.
Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated!
