Published 12:54 pm Friday, June 25, 2010

Do you have youngsters who are interested in basketball? On July 12-14, the Seth Vining Jr. Foundation will be co-sponsoring a shooting camp for students, grades 1-12, at the Polk County High School Gymnasium.

Costs are very reasonable for the camp. Families with more than one student will receive a fee discount.

This summer the camp will be under the direction of Josh McEntire, varsity boys head basketball coach. They will be joined by Craig Culbreth, Michelle Fagan, Chauncey Barber and a host of volunteer coaches.
