Sunday, April 23rd, volunteers from the Office of Human Relations assisted the Cincinnati Reds Match Program in a game between the Cincinnati Diamonds and the Norwood Knothole. The purpose of the Match Program is to bring together softball teams that would not ordinary play each other, together for a fun time. Teams are from Cincinnati and Suburban areas. Sunday’s activity started with a girl from each Norwood team being matched with a girl from the Cincinnati team. After the two teams were thoroughly mixed, they then played each other.

On the other side of the field, parents from both teams were participating in a similar activity. The parents participated in an ice-breaker where they learned a little about each other. Because of a shortage of girls from the Cincinnati team, there was one Norwood player without a Match partner. I became her partner and learned that her name is Megan, she is 10 years old, and if she had one wish it would be to live in Florida (because she likes the beach and sand).
