Memory book for Coach Chesire
T-ball coach Coach Jimmy Chesire is retiring, and plans are underway to commemorate his 25 years of dedication to young people and t-ball with a memory book. Susan Hyde is requesting pictures and/or stories about t-ball players and/or Jimmy, from t-ball players and their families past and present.
Susan requests submissions to her by Oct. 15, because of the need to lay out the book chronologically and to prepare it for next summer. She suggests making copies of items submitted, and identifying on a sticky note the first and last names of people and the year, on the back of photos. For stories, include complete names and the year.
Send all items to Susan Hyde, 1405 President Street, Yellow Springs, OH 45387-1326; or e-mail [email protected] and include your name and phone number.
