Hamburger Scrimmage Draws Large Crowd!

The annual Crusader Club Hamburger Football Scrimmage was held Thursday evening down at Sellers Park. Football players from1st grade through 12th took their turns during the scrimmage to show off their football skills in front of the large crowd of parents, fans and friends. It was a beautiful evening weather-wise and the hamburgers were quite tasty! By evenings' end, dozens of young Wellington Football players, for just one night, were all on the field together...imagine a memory or two for years to come were generated by many.
