SRD - Long time Sheridan Recreation District youth sports specialist Whitey Wells retired from the District last week. Friday afternoon friends and co-workers held a BBQ get together for Whitey and I had a chance to visit him where else but at Thorne-Rider park.

Wells says he had a great 15 years at the district. And he says with all the activities available for kids in Sheridan county no one should ever says there is nothing for kids to do.

One program started by Whitey several years ago was their kids fishing day which began as a one time program that developed into one of their best summer activities.
