Arden Recreation

written by Dick Russel

The origin of Arden Recreation goes back to the Arden Civic Association meeting of March 21, 1969. The minutes of that meeting include the following: "Mr. Trask requested information about the possibility of a Little League team for the community. He agreed to serve as chairman of a committee to investigate this idea. He will be assisted by Mr. Dean as co-chairman, and Mr. Russell, Mr. Sparhawk and Mrs. Couch." And so, seeded with $200 from the ACA, Arden Recreation was born from an interest by Don Trask.

The April 1969 issue of the NEWSBUOY announced the planning stages for an Arden sports program and that boys and parents with the desire to participate should contact Dick Russell or Skip Dean. This was the first of many player registrations to follow.
