Emmett Till is murdered

“Till grew up in a working-class neighborhood on the south side of Chicago, and though he had attended a segregated elementary school, he was not prepared for the level of segregation he encountered in Mississippi. His mother warned him to take care because of his race, but Emmett enjoyed pulling pranks. On August 24, while standing with his cousins and some friends outside a country store in Money, Emmett bragged that his girlfriend back home was white. Emmett’s African American companions, disbelieving him, dared Emmett to ask the white woman sitting behind the store counter for a date. He went in, bought some candy, and on the way out was heard saying, “Bye, baby” to the woman. There were no witnesses in the store, but Carolyn Bryant—the woman behind the counter—later claimed that he grabbed her, made lewd advances and wolf-whistled at her as he sauntered out.”

NEW SCOREBOARD | The new scoreboard is officially up in Waterville. Thank you to the Edwin J. Wadas Foundation and all who helped install the scoreboard for making this possible!

The pickleball court at Babbott Park is now open. There are two courts with portable pickleball nets. Please remember that these courts share the same space as the tennis court and all courts are on a first come, first serve basis. Please be respectful. Additionally, the nets are portable so they are not as sturdy as permanent nets. Please be careful moving them.
