In Rexford:
Donkey Basketball
Golden Plains Activities Department will be hosting Donkey Basketball on April 23rd in Rexford. It's basketball played on real, live donkeys and it will be wilder than a rodeo and funnier than a circus! All local players (GPHS Students vs Elem/MS/HS Staff), so come out and see someone you know try to ride a donkey and play basketball at the same time. It's a thrill a minute, a spill a minute. Sponsored by Golden Plains Athletic Department. All proceeds benefit GP Athletics. Advance tickets $7.00, tickets at the door $10.00, (preschool free with paid adult). Contact the MS/HS in Rexford at (785) 687-3265 for ticket info or email travis@usd316.org.
