Welcome to Afton

City of Afton BEGGARS NIGHT for Trick or Treating will be Monday October 30, 2017 from 5pm to 7pm. NEW this year: TRUNK or TREAT- Idea by one of our own local youths- Katie Hamilton. Thanks for the Great Idea Katie!!!   See below for more information and registration form.

My name is Katie Hamilton, and I am a member of the local 4-H club. For one of my projects this year I am hosting a trunk or treat on October 30, 2017 in conjunction with Afton’s trick or treat night and times. A trunk or treat is when you decorate a trunk (your car) or table then hand out candy for Halloween. You will need to provide your own candy or whatever you wish to hand out. This is a safe addition to door to door trick or treating. It will be on the South side of the square in Afton from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Set up time is at 4:30 p.m. for any individuals, groups or businesses that would like to have a “trunk”. There will be a prize for the best “trunk provided by my sponsor Brummel Construction.  Click here for registration form.

Youth Soccer is starting!
We have a lot of kids out this year and the Recreation Board
has been busy trying to collect registration forms and get things organized and ready for the season.  Here are the details:

Pre K and kindergarten will play at one level.  1st and 2nd graders will be at another level while 3rd and 4th grades will be together and 5th and 6th graders will play together.

Pre K and kindergarteners and 1st and 2nd graders will have 4 teams each and play 4 on 4.  Due to the lack of coaches, they will all practice together.  The plan is one practice a week, on Tuesdays starting September 12th. Practice will run from 6:00-7:00.  A second practice could be scheduled if the kids, parents, and coaches would like an additional practice.  The games will be played on Saturdays starting on September 16th.  Pre K/kindergarten will play at 8:30 and 1st/2nd grade will play at 9:30. On game days, the first 20 minutes will be further instruction/ practice and then the game will start.  It will be 4 quarters in a game of 6-8 minutes in a quarter.  Everyone will play.

3rd/4th and 5th/6th graders will have practice 2x/week, Mondays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:00.  Games for the 3rd/4th graders will be at 10:30 with the 5th/6th graders to follow.  As the season progresses, the teams will be blended together as we have scheduled a game with the teams in Murray on October 14th.  We are also communicating with Osceola and a couple of other nearby communities to see if we can get games against them.  If we are able to get games with any other community, this will be announced by email and on Facebook.  Everyone will play.

The kids need to have a pair of shin guards for all practices and games. The kids will receive a shirt for playing in the league, please email the size of the shirt and your child’s name to erik_niggemeyer@hotmail.com
