(Hardship) School Supply Signups In Progress (Pre-K - 5th Grade)
Meadowcreek United Methodist Church is once again taking registration of children in Pre-K through 5th Grade who attend Collinsville Schools and are experiencing financial hardship to receive a new backpack filled with school supplies needed for the 2016-17 school year. -- 7/12/2016
CHS Cross Country Summer Workout
The CHS Cross Country Boys just beat the rain and lightning Tuesday morning with a stadium workout. I've seen the CHS XC Girls out running recently also, but don't have a photo yet. -- Ted -- July 12, 2016
Band Summer Workout
Yes, the Collinsville Crimson Cadet Band members also workout to get in shape for their marching season. I caught a photo (from the road) of a lap around Sallee Field last Wednesday (July 6th) ... again with an outdoor practice shortened by rain. Doesn't seem like a "normal" July weather pattern? ... but I do have green grass in my yard. -- Ted
The other CHS fall sports are also preparing this summer ... check back for some random volleyball, softball, football photos ... before formal media photos scheduled in mid-August.
Bridge Replacement Progress
Work to replace the old 19th Street bridge (by the City Park) began July 5th and the old span was mostly gone when I took this photo Monday afternoon (July 11th). When this bridge is completed, work will move to 12th Street (over the same creek). -- (Previous Coverage)
Note: I've checked some maps and Google and sent out a few queries and as yet can't find a "formal" name for the creek that runs through City Park. It was always just been "the creek" or "the park creek" when I was growing up. I would welcome anyone to share if they have information on an actual name. -- Ted Wright ( 7/12/2016
