Kids ages 6 to 18 can join the fun at a free tennis festival/clinic on July 18 at 6:30 p.m. at Harrison County High School, 320 Webster Ave., Cynthiana. Participants of all abilities are invited to spend the evening learning how to play tennis or improving their game in a friendly, fun-filled atmosphere that celebrates this sport.
Children 10 and under will play using a youth format that downsizes the court and equipment while using lower-bouncing tennis balls that allow kids to rally from the get-go. Older children will play on regulation-sized courts.
More than 130 people filled the Elks Lodge Hall as the Cynthiana-Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association inducted their second class to the Alumni Hall of Fame.

Dr. Larry Bishop had the invocation followed by a meal served by David Turner. Turner’s barbeque is well known for its excellent taste and quality.
The Tee-Ball Tournament began Monday evening with the undefeated regular season champion Yankees facing the Reds.
The first inning was the turning point of the game as the Yankees struck for the maximum six runs in the top of the inning and held the Reds to one in the bottom half. An exciting triple play pulled off by the Yankees’ Simon Jenkins was the big play of the game in the opening inning.
