Ballfield Get-Together Benefits Hall Family

A pleasant Saturday greeted folks who came out to the Douglass/V.O. Dobbins Ballfield on March 31st, to fellowship and take advantage of the early springtime weather.

"I just got tired of all the funerals," says organizer Corky Blye, who spent most of his time over the grill at one of the shelters. "It bothered me that people were more or less acting like we hadn't seen each other in a long time. It's good for us to get together as a community from time to time, see each other, get the kids out, and just have a good time like we used to have in Riverview." Folks were treated to hot dogs, slaw, potato salad and chips. The event was not without purpose. Proceeds from the food sales benefited the family of the late Tim Hall, who passed away in March.
