The registration fee is $35 until Saturday. After Saturday, the fee will be $45. Parents should bring proof of age (birth certificate) and two documents showing proof of residence. These documents are required before children will be allowed to play.

Tryouts are scheduled for March 15 and March 29 at the Little League Field, weather permitting, for all baseball and softball majors division teams. Sign up will be offered on these days. If the weather is bad or the fields are wet, the tryouts will move to the high school gym. The last day to register is March 29.

March for Meals Saturday

Williams area walkers will take part in the annual March for Meals Walk-a-thon this Saturday, beginning at the Williams Senior Center at 10:30 a.m. The senior center is located at 850 W. Grant Ave.

Proceeds from the walk benefit the Williams Senior Nutrition Program. Over 9,000 congregate meals were served at the Williams Senior Center during the past calendar year and over 4,000 meals were home delivered via the Meals on Wheels program.

Organizers for the walk-a-thon are still seeking donations, sponsors and walkers. Monetary donations benefit the senior nutrition program, which provides one hot meal per day, Monday through Friday. The Northern Arizona Council of Governments, the city of Williams and the Coconino County Senior Nutrition program provide funding.

A continental breakfast is also planned Saturday prior to the walk, according to organizers, and donations are tax deductible.

For more information, contact Max Bishop at the Williams Senior Center at (928) 635-2628.
