Youth sports programs are good for local kids! When children get involved in athletic programs, they not only learn the necessary skills of the sport, but they learn valuable life skills as well.

The concept of teamwork is at the forefront, as are the health and socialization benefits to youngsters.

Spring Grove is fortunate to have well-attended youth programs, in addition to active coaches, volunteers and parents.

In order to provide quality programs, including uniforms and transportation to competition(s) and special camps, the Spring Grove Lions Club has partnered with the Youth Sports programs to ask for the community's help!

The Lions Club is sponsoring a raffle to help raise funds for all Spring Grove Youth Sports programs.

The raffle will be Saturday, Nov. 3, at Norski's Saloon in Spring Grove and will feature a 40-gun giveaway including a BROWNING A BOLT II .270, a WINCHESTER SUPER X3 12 GA., a THOMPSON CENTER ENCORE 209X50 CAL. and a HENRY GOLDENBOY .22 LR.

Tickets are available at Doc's Blue Moose, Norski's or from Lions Club members Don Hagen (507) 458-3465 or JC Nerstad (507) 951-0379. Tickets are $20 each, get yours today!
