BarkPark – We are changing the access code on Friday. Our Birthday Party is on May 31st.

Boy Scouts Troup 315, who has worked with us before on trails at Hannah More. – They have dues but no fees. We have no reason not to adopt them, therefore they’ll have access to the Senior Center, without a Facilities Request. They need to talk to Annie regarding becoming an employee so they can have a key. Consider them affiliated as of today.

Jade/Kyle (Summer Playground) – Registration has been open for a month. Reisterstown Elementary. Shortened to 7 weeks. Going to Players as a new trip.

Keith (Gaming) – The January event had 130 people and was a great success. Now, weekly attendance has gone up to 25. The Senior Center is getting rekeyed. We had to pay for a broken table out of the 4 that broke during the January event. It will be paid out of collections.

Girls Basketball – We finished last Saturday with Fabulous finals. This was the1st year we had a Kindergarten -1st grade league. We’ll need to change to have the girls play up to 12th grade in Summer League, then Winter League. We had about ~200 kids.

Chuck (Boys Basketball)– We just finished a tournament last weekend; we played all weekend and had a blast. What a change since our season start delayed due to snow. We acknowledge at Franklin High School’s AD for all his help.

Lyle (Lacrosse) – A note about Wrestling – Franklin High School did exceptionally well this year, with kids that fed into their program from our own Raiders. Lacrosse is glad we have turf fields. We started March 1st and we are full except for the Kindergarten -1st grade group who start in April. We start games in a couple of weeks.

Pat – There were 6 budgets approved tonight. I’ll notify Youth Leagues tomorrow so that the registrations go live.
