South Franklin Community Center was started by United Way to create opportunities for a better life for all. United Way advances the common good by focusing on education, income and health in the community. To promote healthy living within Utah County, United Way employees participated in "Bike to Work Day". Provo City and UTA teamed up to host this event that began at 8am on Tuesday, May 17th at the Historic County Courthouse. A bike and helmets were given away, and the city provided free registration for bike licenses, free bike tune-ups courtesy of Bingham Cyclery, and a free breakfast sponsored by Jamba Juice and Einstein Bagels. Over 100 people participated in this 3-mile bike ride around Provo with Mayor John Curtis.
By reducing pollution and increasing exercise all across the community we can LIVE UNITED. We invite you to join us. You can give, you can advocate and you can volunteer. To find out more call 211.

Team Work

I know the weather has been pretty lousy lately, but we at South Franklin know the antidote to be able to keep our spirits high. We focus on team building activities, especially during soccer on Saturdays. Whether stretching together...  
 giving a pep talk...
 or cheering each other on...
we never let the weather discourage us. If you would like to be apart of this wonderful antidote for bad weather, join us this Saturday from 9am to 1pm at the Boulders or Franklin Elementary fields. Don't forget the next 2 Saturdays are team pictures for picture day! So come looking your best for the camera.

Registration is now closed but remember to come back for fall season, starting August. We also have great things coming up like Summer Camp. We'll split the kids into 3 different age groups so they can enjoy appropriate age related activities. Please contact us if you're interested in volunteering, participating, or have questions, concerns, or suggestions. 801-691-5338 or southfranklin@unitedwayuc.org

Cancelled soccer games

Due to the sporadic weather, we had to cancel last Saturday's soccer games, but don't worry we won't miss a beat. We are continuing this Saturday by playing those games we missed. We will keep registration open another week and the season tournament will now be June 4th. We hope to see you guys out there to support your team. This Saturday looks like great, warm weather and the kids are anxious to play some games. If you have any questions you can call 801-691-5338 or email southfranklin@unitedwayuc.org.

We are still looking for refs to help out this season. You can sign up for games using the link on the right.
