The Hailstorm 14u softball team volunteered over breakfast with Santa to raise money for the Walker Township Fire Company. These girls have volunteered to give back to the community for four years. They started by serving food and clearing tables. This year, they organized a craft table for the kids. The craft table was a great success and the team was very busy. The community often supports the team. The team includes Sadie Ripka, Taylor Bumgardner, Ragan Manning, Alaina Smith, Cora Myers, Elle Dinges, Alissa Fritz, Jaylee Lose, Jalee Bodtorf and Sydney Thompson. The girls are coached by Terry Bumgardner, Todd Ripka, Mike Thompson, Jayson Lose and Shannon Manning.
