Health Fair!

This Past Saturday, BYU nursing students came and put on a health fair at the community center. They set up multiple stations such as hand washing, dental care, blood sugar and blood pressure testing, nutrition, infant and child care, vision screening, exercise and more! Many people from the community showed up and everyone had a great time!

After getting his blood sugar tested, Jose helped test the nursing student's blood sugar!

The families who attended left feeling healthy and happy!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

After the soccer games this past Saturday the Welch family from Heber put on an amazing St. Patrick's Day party at the community center. They decorated the whole center with green streamers, gold coins, shamrocks and leprechauns and came prepared with a variety of fun games including musical shamrocks, hot potato, tossing bean bags of "gold coins" into a black cauldron and more. The kids were all very engaged and had a blast. They made shamrock necklaces, did shamrock mazes and even decorated shamrock shaped cupcakes. Everyone left with prizes, treats and smiles. A huge thank you to the Welch family and their friends for creating such a memorable experience for the kids in our neighborhood!

Let the Season Begin!

Last Saturday we had our first pre-season Soccer Scrimmage and it was so much fun! It was a little chilly outside but everyone was way too excited to stay home. Tons of parents and kids came out and played with fellow teammates. Our volunteer coaches also came to help divide the kids into teams and referee the games. The whole event was made possible by supportive parents and dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. A big THANK YOU to everyone who is and will help with this soccer season!

We are still looking for volunteers to keep score and to referee games! Email us at if you are interested!

Registration in full force!

Practicing their skills!

We know what position he will be playing!
