CROW — Crow alumni are invited to shoot some hoops at the Crow High School Alumni Basketball Games on Saturday, Feb. 29.
This is such a fun event. Jim and I spent so many years watching our four kids and six grandkids playing sports. Our son, Rob Edwards, and our grandson, Kevin Stevens, have participated in the alumni games almost every year they have been played since graduating, and sitting in those stands again and cheering them on brings back so many wonderful memories for us.
I’ve tried to get our daughters, Gloria Edwards and Michele Edwards Kau, who still live in the area, to sign up to play again, but they prefer to be remembered from their “glory days.” Our granddaughters, Stephanie Kau Furlong, Linsey Kau Haxby and Hayley Kau, were outstanding athletes at Crow, too, but I haven’t been able to convince them to come out and allow Grandma and Grandpa Edwards to relive some of those special games they played – and Steph and Lins definitely won’t be playing this year since both are providing us with two new great-grandbabies soon.
Our other two granddaughters, Hannah and Natalie Edwards, didn’t attend C-A-L schools; they attended Creswell High School, but we were able to watch them play during their middle school years and they too have generated some wonderful memories for us.
The alumni games will be held from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the high school gymnasium. Cost is $10. Proceeds benefit the district’s athletic and scholastic programs in all of the schools. Check in at 4:30 p.m. The women’s game is at 5:30, followed by men’s games. Concessions and raffles will be provided by the Booster Club. There will be two open gyms before the Games – from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 16 and Sunday, Feb. 23 at the high school.
