We got a couple of good pictures today from Brandi Brown over in St. Pauls.

She also sent along a note saying that Rodney Grooms, shown in one of the pictures, “is a citizen of St. Pauls and volunteers his evenings to the children. The T-ball program is through the Robeson County Parks and Recreation Department. In this photo Rodney is giving the kids pointers after practice. Games are scheduled to begin after the 4th of July holiday.”

Thanks, Brandi! And here they are:

Honoring a coach

May 13, 2008

Got this note today from Sampson County:

On Monday, May 12, Sampson County Parks and Recreation paid tribute to Sidney Taylor, a former volunteer coach for the Roseboro area.  Participating in the tribute ceremony were current coaches, Kevin Tanner, Keith Butler, Jay Ezzell and Steve Honrine. 

Coaches and Western District Superintendent Marina Sessoms presented Taylor a plaque for the hours of dedication he provided to the youth of Sampson County. Taylor threw out the first pitch to start the game for the 9-10 year old Little League teams – the Western Mets and Western Phillies.
