We have three kids that are becoming more involved in multiple activities in our community. I hope everyone realizes how fortunate and blessed we are to have so many parents who are stepping up and volunteering to help in so many areas!

I have been overly impressed this past year in the options available to our youth in Anamosa and Jones County. For my family it has been softball, baseball, swim team, basketball, 4-H, Clover Kids, church activities and the list goes on! These parents are stepping up for free and not only organizing a team, but teaching techniques, and more importantly teamwork and sportsmanship.

Thank you to all of the coaches and volunteers that have helped with so many areas. Without you, we wouldn't have such great organizations for our youth to grow!  Don't forget to thank the volunteers, and if you get a chance, volunteer to help out yourself and be the guidance for the youth that will be the future of our community!
