Newton Softball Complex
Local law enforcement will hold a softball tournament at the Newton Softball Complex on North 19th Avenue East in Newton.
Coordinator Jeremy Burdess, who works as a detective at the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office, said up to four teams are expected to compete in the friendly tournament.
Proceeds from free will admissions and concessions, he said, will benefit the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program in Jasper County. As vice-president of D.A.R.E. Iowa, Burdess said the program itself is free to all the area schools; however, the books and T-shirts given to the kids who participate in the program is what ultimately costs money.
