Thanks for soccer excellence

I just wanted to say thank you to the Ashland High School soccer coaches and teams — and all who support our teams — for the soccer culture that is growing up in our community. Because of consistently articulate and inspiring play — and fair-minded sportsmanship — high-level, athletic high school soccer has a home in Ashland. And watching our teams play their games on our "new" turf field is a wonderful experience.

Can't wait for next season!

Thanks for schools support

The ninth annual Monster Dash Run for Education, and the prior evening’s Monster Ball Pasta Dinner Party, were hugely successful. These fundraisers, held Oct. 27 and 28, were hosted by the Ashland Kiwanis Club in support of the Ashland Schools Foundation to raise funds for the Ashland public schools' classroom grant program.

Because of these events, hundreds of students will receive an enriched education in the arts, sciences and across the curriculum.

A big thank you to the general public for coming out to support these fundraisers!

Also, many thanks go to the many sponsors and volunteers (including the 60 AHS Key Club members) for supporting these events.
