Fort Bragg Girls Softball Registration
Sign up now for girls ages four years (by April 1st) to 8th grade. You can either register with our online form, or paper forms can be picked up anytime at Rick Friar Insurance Agency on Main St. or at the C. V. Starr Community Center. Sign-up fees are $85 per player and $10 off registration for siblings. The volunteer retainer is a $40 fee per family. The fee will be returned once 2 hours of volunteering are completed. We will not be able to accept ANY registrations on February 1st. Please make sure you have your child registered before we close registration. This also applies to ALL girls trying out for the middle school team. We understand tryouts will be after registration closes, but middle school players need to register with us as their backup plan in case they are not selected for the middle school team to ensure that they do not miss out on a year of playing time. Please note we have broken up our old tee ball division and added a coach pitch-only division (no hitting off the tee). Tee ball division will continue to be the same as before, with the coach pitch then hitting off the tee. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Guest House Docents
The Guest House Museum
in Fort Bragg needs additional volunteer docents. Being a museum docent isn’t hard; it only takes a few hours a month. Being a docent is like being a good host in your own home. Docents greet everyone who comes through the museum’s front door. It’s where anyone can learn about Fort Bragg, the region, and what went into forming and keeping this community thriving. You don’t need to be a historian or “history nerd,” and training is available. To find out more, call 707 964-4251 or email email@example.com.
