It won't be long until you'll hear the crack of
the bat as it contacts the ball. The Lincoln Park District is taking
tee ball registrations now. Tee ball is for boys and girls
entering kindergarten through second grade. Players will learn the
fundamentals of baseball, including hitting, fielding, throwing and
base running. Emphasis is on sportsmanship, teamwork and fun. All
athletes must wear sneakers and have their own ball glove. The
league will play on Saturday mornings, beginning June 12, and will
last six weeks. We'll take the Fourth of July weekend off. Chris
Ciaccio will be the coach.
The annual free Fishing Clinic will be on Tuesday, June 1.
Explore the fundamentals and safety issues of fishing. Herb Drier
with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will be here with
displays and giveaways. He will teach young anglers how to tie on a
hook, casting techniques and the usage of different baits. There
will be drawings for fishing poles and equipment at the end of the
presentation. Join us in the Railer Room at 6:30 p.m.
Fishing Derby is hosted at Hickory Lane Campground near Atlanta
and sponsored by the Lincoln Police Department D.A.R.E. program. In
the past, the pond has been stocked just days before the event.
Prizes will be awarded in several different categories in this
competitive but fun event. The wiener wagon will be on hand to offer
hot dogs and sodas to the fishermen and their families. Parental
approval is a must and parents are encouraged to attend. Meet us on
the banks Saturday, June 5. We'll begin fishing at 9 a.m. and plan
to be finished by noon. Ages 4-15.
