Programs for kids benefit everyone involved in the long run, and continuing a youth oriented service was the topic today at the Muskingum County Commissioners Office. The Pro-Youth Coalition was there to ask for more funding for their county wide basketball league. The Pro-Youth Coalition provides many services to children of the community, however they need additional funding for their county wide basketball league. During the months of January and March many children find themselves getting bored, so by joining the basketball league they can enjoy themselves on the weekends while meeting other people and learning the game of basketball as well as sportsmanship. The organization has been providing this service to kids for five years, and Youth Coalition organizers have noticed that the numbers of participants have grown each year. The county wide basketball league organization encourages the community to get involved and take part by being a volunteer. Coach’s meetings will be held on November 3rd at 10am and on November 13th at 7pm. For more information contact Howard Bailey at 452-7401.
