PLYMOUTH â€” Children ages 8 to 13 have a fun opportunity this weekend to compete with their peers during the 2013 Ford Escape soccer skills challenge, a free event sponsored by Oliver Ford and held at the Plymouth soccerplex.
"Ford used to have a punt, pass, and kick contest 20 years ago, around football season," said Jennifer Houin of Oliver Ford. "Now, they told us they want to do a soccer challenge."
The event will be run by Duane Culp, president of Plymouth travel soccer, and Chuck DeWitt, Plymouth High School girls soccer coach.
PLYMOUTH â€” The textiles currently being displayed at Heartland Art Gallery were created by textile artist, Dr. Judi-Aubel Osborn of Rome, Italy. Judi spends summers in Culver with her family creating beautiful textile designs. Many of the designs are replicated from observations of nature acquired from her numerous travels around the world. Residing in West Africa for 15 years has greatly influenced her designs by incorporating the artistic traditions of that area of the world. She uses various techniques of dying, printing and embroidery in making these patterns of nature come to life.
PLYMOUTH â€” A new principal for Riverside Intermediate School will be moving into the office as the new school year gears up, but the move will just be from one side of the building to the other.
