St. Camillus/St. Virgilius Ends Another Successful Mini Basketball Season
St. Camillus/St. Virgilius recently ended another great Mini Basketball League season. This league consists of 120 children who participate from kindergarten to the second grade. It’s a joy to watch these kids, parents, and coaches get together every Saturday morning and truly enjoy the great game of basketball.
The children understand the true meaning of the game. It’s meant to be played as hard as you can, but in the end, it’s still a game that’s meant to be fun. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the entire season, which culminated with the Mini Olympics.
The Mini Olympics are a series of events that give all the kids a chance to have fun and win special awards. However, in this league, since everybody is a winner, everyone wins something. You can’t help but smile as you watch this event unfold. Camera’s flashing, parents cheering, coaches helping, and everybody in the gym smiling and genuinely having a great time.
St. Camillus/St. Virgilius would like to thank all of the coaches who came down every Saturday morning to help; to all the parents for their support and enthusiasm; and especially to all the local businesses who helped support the program with their generous financial contributions. Special thanks to Father Ahlemeyer who completely supported the program from start to finish. It also needs to be mentioned that this program was run by Karen and Guy Nevirs for about eight years. They did a terrific job and left some big shoes to fill. Thanks to them for all they have done, and for their help in passing on the knowledge to the new people who stepped up so big this year to take over the program.
St. Camillus/St. Virgilius would like to express a very special thanks to Margaret Tumelty, Mike Moran and Kevin Zwolinski. They were there every week to help run the program; to Debbie Horan who ran the kitchen; and lastly the biggest thanks to Donna Moran who took responsibility for the entire program. She did a truly outstanding job.
