Free Youth Baseball Event

Hey Ted,

My name is Josh walker. Not sure if you remember me or not, but you took a lot of pictures of me when I played baseball for Collinsville back in 2005/2006. I own a new and used sporting goods store in Owasso and also have an indoor baseball/softball facility.

I don't know if this is something you would be interested in covering, or helping to spread the word, but my business, Replay Sports, is hosting a Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit and Run competition next month. This FREE competition is designed to give kids an opportunity to compete in a competition that recognizes individual excellence in core baseball/softball skills. The competition is open to boys and girls ages 7-14.

I have attached a copy of the official press release. Being a free event, I am not able to spend any money advertising so I'm not sure if you can do anything with it but its a great opportunity for youngsters and it also gives them the opportunity to win a trip to compete at the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. I thought it might be something you could post on your website or any other form of media to let parents and athletes know about the opportunity.

Thanks! -- Josh Walker | Owner

Eleven members of the Home Representative Club gathered March 3, 2015 at the Collinsville Library, and enjoyed a report by City Manager Pam Polk regarding all the many projects planned for our city in the near future.....everything from renovating the Veterans' Building, to installing a fence around the cemetery & paving the driving lanes within the perimeters. The city is also planning to install automated electric and water meters; upgrade Center Street; make improvements at the water treatment plant; and make bridge repairs. Our city is growing, and making definite plans for the future!

Patchworkers March Meeting
Sandra Phillippee presented a program to the Collinsville Patchworkers, March 10, 2015, regarding her involvement with Quilts of Valor. Volunteers across the USA create patriotic quilts for service men and women who have returned from war, protecting our country. She noted that 214,000 quilts have been donated since 2003, and presented to soldiers in honor of their service ! The group happily accepts donations of quilt blocks (red, white, blue), batting, appropriate fabric, thread - and of course, completed quilts in patriotic colors.

Patchworkers involved in the current monthly star block exchange voted to also create a block for Quilts of Valor each time, and Mrs. Phillippee will then sew them into the next quilt.

The Patchworkers meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month; 6:30 PM; at the Collinsville Library - visitors are always welcome!
