Elks donate money for Himebaugh hoops

| November 20, 2012

COSHOCTON – Himebaugh Park received a new basketball pole, backboard and hoop through a community service grant from Elks Lodge 376. This money is awarded each year to a community project for parks, fire or rescue. Another basketball pole is on order for the other end of the court.

“It (the court) has been a great thing for the community and the neighborhood,” said Steve Jones. “I think it will get even more use when we add the other pole this spring. I’ve heard nothing but positive comments about the basketball court.”

Lines also will be painted on the court this spring after the second hoop is added.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
