Town of Dryden Recreation Dept. Looking for Players and Coaches Interested in Girls Lacrosse

ATTENTION: Girls in Grade K - 6th........Are you interested in an ALL Girl Lacrosse team??? Dryden Recreation Dept. is looking for some feedback if they should have an all girl team. Email: Andrew Pierce at coordinator@dryden.ny.us and let him know. He's looking for feedback if this should happen. If we get enough girls interested then maybe it will be a go. The practices would be Tues. and Thur. at DES. Price $25, and would run from April 16th - May 23rd.
