Friendly game with SCC volunteers, visitors, population

Sierra Conservation Center (SCC) volunteers and community members recently took part in a softball tournament against the incarcerated population to support the Special Olympics of Northern California.

Run by the Community Resource Manager’s office, three food sales were held in September, with the Sept. 16 event featuring a daylong softball tournament. The teams included Prison Sports Ministry, Special Olympics Tuolumne Ravens, and the incarcerated population.

Food sale items were provided by the Outpost Deli of Soulsbyville.

The SCC incarcerated population also had a blast announcing the softball game and interacting with visitors and event sponsors, all while helping Special Olympics.
