The Homestead Lacrosse Club is sponsoring the Homestead Community Lacrosse Day on May 8. It will provide nonstop lacrosse action from 10 a.m. to 9:30 pm, along with food, raffles, games, radar-gun-tracked speed throws and lots of information about the sport, camps, equipment, and more.
The games will be played on the Homestead High School Football fields and in the nearby Van Hoozen Park by the Aboite fire station.
Visitors and participants are asked to bring a canned food item that will be collected and donated to Community Harvest Food bank.
