Volunteer effort keeps Bulldog Community Rec programs growing


Time and effort from a dedicated board—with help from a network of volunteer coaches and officials, sponsorships from local businesses and support from participating families—allows Bulldog Community Rec to offer around a half dozen sports programs annually. Soccer was added to the list this spring, and attracted 140 kids for three Sunday evening fundamentals camps. (Photo courtesy of Bulldog Community Rec)

Kids are now enjoying “summer ball” through Bulldog Community Rec. “In JK through third, we have 115 kids alone signed up,” remarked the group’s president Danielle Schlake. That doesn’t include the older traveling baseball and softball teams. (Photo by Audrey Posten)
