Village Library students win summer tennis scholarships
This spring marked the fourth year that the Northeast Tarrant Tennis (NETT) Association has offered tennis lessons for our Village Library students. The lessons alternate so that each semester, either our Monday/Wednesday students or our Tuesday/Thursday students have the opportunity to participate.

For the spring session, 13 students participated. Four students were new to the tennis program, so they received a brand-new racket and balls from NETT. Students are encouraged to use the racket and balls to continue practicing the game with their friends or family at our public parks throughout the summer. To further encourage them to continuing playing the sport, several individuals donated their slightly-used tennis equipment to the student's parents, so they could enjoy the sport with their children.

For the first time this year, NETT offered four scholarships to Village Library students for a week of free tennis lessons at the Hurst Tennis Center. We are grateful for this generous gift which will help our students stay active and engaged this summer.
Family Volunteer Day scheduled for June 10
diverse_family_friends.jpg Looking to volunteer as a family this summer? Join us at the Village Pantry from 9 am - 11 am on Saturday, June 10.

Families who participate that day will start with a tour of our Village Pantry and Village Library to learn more about the work of Mission Central and why we do it. We'll then spend some time working on projects around the pantry. These may include helping with cleaning, organizing, and sorting items at our location.

If you'd like to participate in Family Volunteer Day, please RSVP to Catherine Hollis at 817-595-0011 or catherine.hollis@missioncentraltx.org with how many people will be attending and the ages of your children.
