Drop-in adult soccer happening
Outdoor adult soccer is happening these days. Not exactly in the same way as usual, but at least people are able to get out and do some scrimmaging.

In the meantime, Ferguson says anyone is welcome to come out Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 7 – 9 p.m. at the Northern Lakes College field in Slave Lake.
