Newton Elks #1270 supports youth sports leagues, Oak Trails camp
Newton Elks Lodge #1270 member Pam DeBruyn presents Newton YMCA Business Development Director Frank Buckley with a check for $1,250 which will support youth soccer and basketball leagues, and the annual Oak Trails Camp.
The summer is winding down and thoughts of a new school year are beginning to surface. Thanks to Newton’s caring Elks Lodge #1270 many kids had the opportunity to participate this summer in both a soccer and basketball league run by the Newton Y.
“These leagues started last summer and continue to have great appeal to our kids. Both leagues offered six weeks of play which kept many participants physically active and socially engaged during the otherwise slow summer months," said Buckley. “Our director of youth programs Scott Taylor came up with the idea and has done a fantastic job with both leagues.”
In addition, the Elks funding also allowed the continuation of the Newton Y’s annual Oak Trails Camp. The camp offers many exciting activities, includes swimming, fishing, hiking, camping, crafts and a chance to spend time outdoors.
“The Newton Y sincerely appreciates the great members of Lodge #1270 for all they do for our community. They truly care and are willing to share with those around them,” Buckley said.
Youth wanting to continue with sports opportunities should begin registering for the fall leagues at the Newton Y. For more information about leagues, contact Scott Taylor, Sports Director, at (641) 792-4006.
