We Have Exactly What You Need! By STEVE HERRING MOUNT OLIVE — The T-ball and youth baseball and softball seasons are winding down, but there will still plenty of programs for youths and adults offered this summer through the town's Parks and Recreation Department. The T-ball championship game will be played at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 30, at Daughtry Field. The two-month season opened April 4. There are 14 teams including T- ball, baseball and girls softball in which 120 to 140 children are partici- pating. The youth programs are well attended, said Josh Phillips, Parks and Recreation director. "Some, like the open gym, it varies," he said. "If we have the doors open, it is possible we will have 50 kids. We are hoping for more. The age range from as young as 8 years old to proba- bly high school kids." Phillips said there has been no "strict schedule" in last few years, but with a new intern, Colton Chrisman, Phillips said the gym will be open three nights a week. "That will not change," he said. "Once the kids get out of school we will remain three times a week all summer long — Monday, Wednesday and Friday they will be able to get some gym time in. "I think we have more this summer to offer than ever before. We are excit- ed for that. Hopefully people will take advantage of it because mostly every- thing that we are doing is free or at a minimal cost." The summer lineup has offerings for children and adults up to senior citizens, he said. "We think we have grown, and we would like to have more people." The Pickle Ball program is very popular among adults, Phillips said. The games are normally played dur- ing the day, but a session is being added on Tuesday nights. That could expand as more people become involved. • Craft Camp will be held Tuesday, June 20, for 5-8-year-olds, and Wednesday, June 21, for 9-12-year- olds at the old train depot. Sign up at town hall before June 9. The program is free. • Movie in the Park Friday, June 23, at Westbrook Park. Popcorn and drinks will be for sale starting at 7:30 p.m. The movie will start at dark. • A Senior Dance for ages 60 and over will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, July 13, 6 to 9 p.m. at the old train depot.
