Outdoor recreational activities are the talk of our town. Did you know there was a fabulous MoVolley Ball Tournament at Oxbow Park last Sunday? It was a gorgeous sunny day and about 25 people came out to play instead of sitting around their woodstove. The competition was fierce, fun was had by all and the A team won gift certificates to 10 Railroad Street.
Speaking of recreational activities, there are 2 sets of horseshoe pits, a volleyball net and a tetherball pole at Oxbow Park, all free for the community to use. Now that spring is just around the corner, the bike share bikes will soon be available. Gather your friends and family and get out and enjoy the many outdoor activities this community has to offer.
Did you know there are soccer, basketball, baseball and a summer recreation program for the kids here in town? We want to get the word out about all the great outdoor opportunities available.
Do you want more recreation in the community or just want to know what is available? An ad hoc group of Morristown community members are interested in re-establishing a year-round recreation committee.
If you are interested in joining us, have a topic you want us to discuss, or are interested in attending future meetings, let me know.
