It just would not be summer without Tee
Ball. This is a non-competitive introduction to baseball for both
boys and girls. The basic skills of hitting, fielding, catching
throwing, base running and safety will be stressed through drills
and game situations. Emphasis is on sportsmanship, teamwork and fun!
T-shirts, caps and schedules will be distributed at the first
practice. All athletes must wear sneakers and have their own ball
glove. In case of inclement weather, Tee Ball will be held in the
Sports Center courts. The season will begin Saturday morning June 7.
There will six weeks of games with no games the 4th of July weekend.
This is for children 4 years old and up to second grade. Parents are
urged to pre-register to insure that your child will have a t-shirt
Our Nathan Turner Memorial Fishing Clinic and Derby are just
around the corner. Nathan Turner, former city councilman and
resident of Lincoln, was an avid fisherman and outdoorsman. Reserve
Tuesday, June 3 at 6:30 for the Clinic held here at the park
district. The free clinic explores the fundamentals and safety
issues of fishing. Her Drier, retired with the Illinois Department
of Natural Resources will be here with displays. He will teach young
and old anglers alike 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.
The free fishing derby will be hosted at Hickory Lane Campground
near Atlanta on Saturday, June 7 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Prizes will
be awarded in several different categories in this competitive but
fun event. The Lincoln City Police D.A.R.E. program will sponsor the
free derby. Police Chief Ken Greenslate will be on hand cooking
hotdogs and providing sodas to the fishermen and their families.
Parental approval is a must and parents are encouraged to attend.
