Jersey retired for only girl on boy’s team A team of her own. Not exactly, but she is in a field all to herself when it comes to being the only girl on otherwise all boy teams. Alexis (Lexi) Amburn has played football for the Eden Boys and Girls Club since starting flag tag at the age of 4. She has never missed a season and puts her heart into every game. At 12 years old she already stands about 5'9. Before playing basketball for her middle school, she had never been on a all girls team; really she has always been the only girl on the team. She has always been accepted by her team mates and is thankful that the coaches and alethic directors have never treated her any different than the rest of the team. “It was really fun to play and it thaught me a lot!” Alexis shares. Since the age of 4, she has also, went from t-ball, to youth baseball and now in the 11 & 12 year old baseball. She played every year for the boys and girls club, until last year, she played baseball for the YMCA (this year she will age out of this program as well.) Through the years she has played mostly catcher & pitcher, however she has no problem playing anywhere the coach needs her.

Tennis Anyone? We've met a few of you at community events this year that have said "I used to play tennis". Here's a chance to brush up your game or play for the first time this fall. Caleb Shelton will be

strong both physically and mentally, a hard worker and has integrity and a positive attitude On November 10th at the Annual Awards Banquet, Lexi was honored at the Boys & Girls Club of Eden for her achievments and her jersey, #7, was officially retired. Lexi’s mom Victoria Jarrett, notes that she is a smart, funny, beautiful and passionate 7th grader at Bethany Community Middle School who has worked hard to get to this moment in her life and hopes that other girls will find the courage and support to go after their dreams as well. Her grandmother Brenda Jarrett and Grand pa Wayne Hundley are so proud, too. With two brothers, Nathaniel Amburn,10 and Zackary Amburn 9, who love to play football, baseball and basketball, the entire family is kept busy going from game to game in season. Lexi’s future plans are to go to Early College at RCC and eventually get her Bachelors in Criminal Justice.

The October 22nd passing of our Daddy has been quite humbling to realize just how many “seeds he had sown” during his almost 99 years…whether picking up a dry cleaning bundle, teaching a Sunday School class, filling a hospital candy jar, or simply tipping his hat in passing, Jesse Hale was in the people business! Everyone who came in contact with our Daddy soon learned to appreciate his motto … “Everything’s lovely!” It brings us joy to know so many people loved him too. Melinda Joyce, J.T. Hale, Jr., Denise Blakeney, Susan Walker

She currently plays basketball (she is #3) for her middle school (Bethany Community Middle School; this is the charter school on hwy 65). This is her second season with them. Once she has aged out of both football and baseball, she plans to focus all her time on basketball, which holds a special place in her life. She also loves to draw, skate board and play fingerboard with friends. This year will mark a major milestone in her life and inspire other girls to go after their dreams, no matter what they may be. Alexis will go down in history as the first girl athlete to ever have her jersey retired in any sport at The Eden Boys & Girls Club. The Eden Boy’s & Girls Club president Amy Nalley said Alexis participated in 186 games or practices while playing football at the Club. Nalley added, “Alexis is a great athlete, multi-talented and has turned into beautiful young lady with a bright and successful future in whatever area she chooses. She always has a smile on her face and willing to do any task that is asked of her. She is
