The Mission Lions Club is getting dirty. Or is that muddy?
Well, at least the volleyball team members will be getting very muddy in the community’s very first Mud Volleyball Tournament being held next weekend on Saturday, June 8, in Alton.
Eight mud pits have been prepared, courtesy of the City of Alton, and over 35 teams have signed up for what is shaping up to be an exciting competition. Highlighting the “friendly competition” is a challenge match between the Mission Fire Department and the Mission Police Department. Rosie Sterling, event chairman for the Mission Lions Club, assured that this is a “non-competitive, recreational” tournament.
