SPY’s Newsletter #123


Important News From The SSAA

The Sunfield Summer Athletic Association, (the SSAA), is still accepting online sign ups for the summer ball program. Our neighboring community left off a very important line from this years sign up forms that went home in the school Friday Folders that stated: "If you live within the old Sunfield Elementary school boundaries, your child plays for FREE".

If you received one of these the sign up forms and were deterred by the prices listed, please sign up - there is NO CHARGE for Sunfield kids.

If you're confused about the boundary lines used to determine free Sunfield area eligibility, or have any other questions, please email the SSAA at

Also, the SSAA is in need of parents to step up and help out. The majority of our board members will be leaving after this year as their children are aging out of the program. We would love to have some parents with younger children work alongside us this year so we can transition duties to the next generation. Please email us if you're interested in getting involved.

Parting Comments

• Deep Thought of the Week: No matter how educated, talented, rich, or cool you believe you are---How you treat people tells all.

• Notable Quote: “Whenever I try to eat healthy a chocolate bar looks at me and Snickers.”

• That’s Puny Department: An East Indian fellow has moved in next door. He has traveled the world, has swum with sharks, has wrestled bears, and climbed the highest mountain. It came as no surprise to learn his name was Bindair Dundat!

• Did You Know Section? Ever hear about The Great Molasses Flood? Back in 1919, just after noon, a massive storage tank failed and flooded the streets of Boston with over 2 million gallons of molasses. The 15-ft tall wave tore houses from their foundation, snapped support girders and electrical poles, and killed 21 people.
