CIVA Ultimate Team Takes First in State

On Nov. 15th CIVA defeated Golden High School in the championship game 12-6.

The CIVA Ravens coed team has competed in the statewide league since 2007 and finished second in State six different times.

It is a major accomplishment for our young athletes to win this monumental achievement.

The team also took first in state for the 'spirit' award.  'Spirit of the game' is the guiding principle that promotes such a high level of sportsmanship that referees are not needed.

It is the spirit of competition that makes this sport such a unique and beneficial sport for our young athletes.

Silver Key Wants Community Input Regarding a Proposed Volunteer Rideshare Service for Seniors
Silver Key - 11/14/18 10:19 AM

Silver Key Reserve & Ride transportation service provides rides for area seniors age 60+ to help them remain engaged and independent. To meet the growing demand for rides to get to and from medical appointments, grocery shopping, meals and other activities, Silver Key is researching additional service options.

One way to be able to provide more rides is to offer a Volunteer Rideshare service where trained and vetted volunteer drivers would use their own vehicles. This proposed optional transportation service could also help Silver Key expand ride availability to include evenings and weekends.

Silver Key wants to hear from those who might be interested in volunteering to drive or ride with this type of service and has developed a survey for community input: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Q63JYGH

For more information about the survey, contact esearch@silverkey.org">research@silverkey.org.
