Y taking tee ball registrants
The YMCA of Southern Indiana is registering boys and girls for youth tee ball. Participants will learn the basics of tee ball in this great introductory sport. Tee ball offers instruction and practice in the fundamentals of the sport in a fun and supportive environment that emphasizes character development, teamwork and good sportsmanship. The focus of the league is to have fun, meet new friends and play tee ball in a noncompetitive environment.
Youth tee ball is open to boys and girls ages 3-7. Registration ends Sunday, May 18 and games will be played on Saturdays, June 7–July 26. The fees for members are $50 for 3-year-olds and $65 for ages 4-7. The fees for participants are $60 for 3-year-olds and $80 for ages 4-7.

Shout out at Silver Heights
Silver Heights Camp/Retreat Center, 501 Camp Ave., New Albany, is sponsoring a free Friday Night Youth Music Festival from 7 to 11 a.m. May 23 at the retreat center.
It is titled “Shout” because it will get loud up on top of Silver Hills in New Albany. All evening there will be an open atmosphere with a bonfire including free s’mores and hot dogs, live music and multimedia entertainment on stage from 7:30 to 10:30, games, prizes and space to hang out with middle and high school youth from all over the area. A mix of music for everyone will be performed by great local high school and college talent.
There is limited parking on the hill, so there will be a free shuttle service starting at 6:45 p.m. from the parking lot of Scribner Middle School, 910 Old Vincennes Road, New Albany.
Library receives donation of abstracts
Local real estate agent and patron of the humanities, Pat Harrison, has made an extensive donation to the collections of the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library.
Harrison has donated the records of Southern Indiana Abstract Company which was the long-time business of Max Mason Sr. who was a fixture in the community, and a long-time patron of the Indiana Room until his passing in 2012. For house historians building abstracts are important tools in helping those doing research determine when their house was built and who has lived there in the past.
At 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 15, the public is invited to a reception held in honor of Harrison in the Library’s Strassweg Auditorium and to thank her for the donation to the library and officially open the collection to researchers. Pieces of the donation will be made available for viewing.
