There is so much to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day and each day. Wishing all a very happy, joyous and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

Little League Girls Softball coming to Halfway

Little League softball is coming to Halfway Little League in the spring and will include the Halfway, Clear Spring and Conococheague Little League districts.  

The Halfway league asks girls ages 7 to 12 who are interested to go to and fill out the girls softball survey as soon as possible. This is not a registration, but a survey that will help the league plan for the first season.
