KPD REFUNDS FALL SOCCER FEES

The Kingsbury Park District Board met last week at the DeMoulin Museum.  The board approved refunding of registration fees from the cancelled fall soccer season.  Director Jerry Sauerwein said the district wanted enough players to have four teams and only enough players registered for two teams.  Next fall it might be possible for players to participate in a multi city fall soccer league.  More information is needed and participation in such a league would mean traveling outside Greenville.
