340’s New Basketball Team Playing at Golden One Arena!
Looking like June for this game, but the Golden One Center still has not confirmed an actual date in June so continue to stay tuned! According to team manager Brendan Nelson, however, the “340 SPARKEEZ” are definitely ready to beat Plumbers Union Local 447 at the new Arena.
Our 1st Picnic meeting was held on March 23rd and the committee is well on their way to planning another great family event.

Next meeting will be held at the Hall on Wednesday May 24th. If you are interested in attending and getting more involved this year, please call
