Last Chance for Soccer Fun this Fall
It's time to throw away the sun screen, cover up the pool, spend half a day getting the beach permit sticker off the car, and buy the new leaf rake you promised yourself last year. All that and have the pleasure of watching your girls and boys run around a soccer field on a crisp and sunny autumnal day!
