News preview for Apr. 25th issue…

Responsibilities of Park and Rec Board become more defined

Lennox City Council held a special meeting on April 16. The main focus of the meeting was a discussion with the Park and Rec Board regarding the board’s responsibilities.
Chad Wulf opened the discussion as a member of the baseball/softball sub-committee on the Park and Rec Board.  He explained to the council that they were switching the girls’ teams to a league in Sioux Falls that would provide them with more structure and pitching at younger ages. Umpires and insurance are provided by the league. Sponsorship for each team is $200; Wulf asked for funds to be released to pay for the five girls teams. Each girl pays $45 to be on the team, so the funds could be taken from their registration fees. Wulf was to meet with the league on Tuesday for a scheduling meeting. Wulf said the committee felt that by switching to this league, they would keep more girls playing in the community.
