Readers say thanks

Dear Editor,I am writing this letter to give my deepest thanks to all the parents, coaches, and sponsors that have supported our youth baseball and softball programs this summer. We had such a successful year that without one of these pieces it would have been impossible to accomplish all that we did. The Carbondale Recreation Department is always in need of support and we feel a sense of relief when we can count on volunteers. The population is ever growing; it is nice to see that no matter how much this small town expands, there is still a sense of pride and community. There is so much enjoyment that still goes into and comes out of these activities. It is amazing to watch the youth in this town grow and learn some of the values that are taught within the programs. A lot of the kids are making lifelong friends that they will continue to play sports with on into high school. So I say thank you to all those who put a smile on a kid’s face, a lesson in a kid’s head, and enjoyment in a kid’s heart. It has been an amazing year and we hope we can count on all of your support again next summer. Jevon BoudreauxAssistant Coordinator Carbondale Recreation
