The New Plymouth High Softball Team qualified for the State Championship that was held in Orofine this last Friday and Saturday.  I am very proud of these girls.  Each one of these girls played to the full extend of their ability.  The played hard.  On Friday, they started out playing Firth and won.  Then they played Orofino and won.  Saturday they played Wendell (a very good team) and won.
 
As it ended up, they played Wendell a second time for the championship.  They WON!
 
After all of their hard work, these girls were like in a dream world. 
 
For those of you who might remember Cheyenne Stallions, my granddaughter, she is a member of this team.  When she is not pitching, she plays second base.

A PERSONAL NOTE

It was very nice to see so many people from our Ola community last night at Bunco.  So many lives in our little community have been effected by cancer, it was good to have the support for this important cause.

Kim

WHAT A FUN NIGHT!!!

 Saturday night, the Ola Rough Striders/Relay For Life hosted Bunco night, benefiting the American Cancer Society.  The event was well attended and everyone had a great time.  The evening started out with pie and ice cream followed by the fun, exciting game of Bunco.  Many, many thanks for those that came out to support the Ola Rough Striders.

• Be age 60 – 79
• Be independently mobile and able to travel to dental offices for treatment within 60 days of program acceptance.

HE LIVES

Last month I attended a memorial service for a cousin, he wrote his own obituary. The first sentence said “This trail has ended, a little sooner than expected, but none the less ended”. A little later he wrote about starting a new adventure. This simple statement reminded me of what Easter is all about. Jesus defeated death and rose from the grave. In the past year besides my dad I have lost an aunt and an uncle and most recently this cousin. Because of their belief in Jesus as their Savior they all embarked on the “new adventure.” Jesus blazed the trail for this “new adventure” when He defeated death with His resurrection. By accepting Him as our Savior we will all be able to follow Him on this “new adventure”. Join us as we celebrate the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ, this Sunday at the Ola Community Church. HAPPY EASTER
