Pickleball LOST, FOUND and WALKED OFF

If you left paddles at Elm Road, please contact the township to claim them.

If you accidently walked off with one or more paddles used during a Beginner Monday session, please return to the township. No hard feelings, we just need it in order to offer any future classes. Look for a PROPERTY OF HARRIS TOWNSHIP asset tag.

Reminder: Paddles and balls are available for check-out from the Harris Branch Library just north of the park.
