Briceville Park is ready to open for business...

On a sweltery July morning, volunteers mowed grass, cut weeds, branches and vines, removed an old fence, installed horseshoe pits, laid out the ball field, and mounted historical memorabilia at the Briceville Park picnic shelter.  We then “tested” the horseshoe pits with a game and the picnic shelter with a cook-out.  Everything is ready for the grand-opening next Saturday, July 17th at 11:00 am.
