Cyndi Anderson, president of Sunrise Rotary; Amy Carvahlo, president-elect, and other members in their recognizable red shirts were on hand for this exciting first day of league games, said Kelly Lehr, sports coordinator for the department. Parks and Recreation commissioners Mike Pontius, Katie Tyler and Tom Tyler came to show their support as well.

The league has 10 teams (four kindergarten and six first- through second-grade teams). Games begin at 9 a.m. every Saturday in the old gymnasium at the city’s recreation center, 900 Arizona St. They will be played through mid-March.
