Play ball for the tots


Last Saturday, the Alexandria Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Activities hosted the Fairfax County Youth Football Leagues all-star games and helped to raise money and collect toys for Toys for Tots. Episcopal HIgh School was the site of the day-long event.

Everyone had a great time and we saw some excellent football, said Mac Slover, Youth Sports Supervisor for the City. Last year, the League gave Toys for Tots three truckloads of toys and $4500. I think we did at least as well this year.

Kids from 7 to 16 compete in the League, beginning with practice in August and ending with the all-star games.
