ANYONE INTERESTED IN COACHING 1st Grade BASKETBALL?  Because the only gym time left available January - mid - Feb. '19 is on Saturdays at 4pm, I feel that it may be a better option to run the program in March through mid - April '19.  If we run this as a "Mud Season 1st Grade Basketball" offering, any Volunteer Coach could choose their (once/week for an hour) practice time. A weekday after school, or in the evening would be perfect for this.  Please contact Jill @ 802-649-1419 x.5 if you'd be interested in Coaching and/or could help make this happen.  Thanks!

Salute  to  Mr.  John  Girard

         We would like to acknowledge the tremendous impact that John Girard had on the Norwich Community and Recreation Department throughout many decades of his exemplary life.  His commitment to doing what was best for each and every child is unmatched.  He led by example and we will try our best to continue his tradition of thoughtful dedication to youth sports.  He gave so much, quietly, without ever wanting any recognition.  He will be missed beyond what words can describe. 

           A heartfelt "Thank-you" goes out first to John's extended family for choosing, in lieu of flowers to request donations be made to the Town of Norwich Recreation Department.  We could not be more honored.  

The first "Mr. G / John Girard" Fund project was installing two new adjustable side basketball backboards in the MC School Gym!  They are currently being used daily by all the young Norwich basketball players in our program and will continue to be enjoyed by Norwich students/basketball players for generations to come. 

            We would like to thank everyone who donated to the "John Girard Fund". Over $23,000 has been received. There are many more ideas of how to best honor Mr. G that are being pursued.  If you have not yet donated to the fund and would like to, checks can be made out to:  Town of Norwich - Recreation, with "John Girard Fund" on the memo line.  Checks can be dropped off at Tracy Hall or mailed to:  Norwich Recreation   P.O. Box 1137,  Norwich,  VT  05055. 

                                                                                                                                                  ~ Jill
