Lawn bowlers, cricketers enjoy Jefferson Park

Neighbor Allison Delong visited Jefferson Park on Saturday, and saw lots of activity. She writes:

“It was really cool—the cricket spectators were set up for picnicing right outside the lawn bowling club. Fun to see such different events going on right next to each other. On top of that, Cleveland High School had an alumni event going on at the same time at the golf course.”

Allison sent us some photos of the day’s events:

Nearby, lawn bowlers enjoy the morning.

Thanks, Allison!

Cricket competition currently at Jefferson Park

Neighbor Christine reports:

“Just returned from a walk around Jefferson Park where the big cricket competition has been going on since Sunday on the new sports field. Talking with some spectators, this is a big competition with teams from Samoa, Hawaii, Utah and Washington. On Saturday starting at 8am there will be some pagentry as each team does a song/dance and then some other festivities and the playoffs.

“The field is ringed with merchants and food vendors—and some great music. The players are attired in sarongs. The game is hard to understand for some of us.”

The Samoan Cricket League folks are at Jefferson Park throughout the summer, but we didn’t know that there was a special event this week. We hope to find out more for the blog, but in the meantime, we wanted to let you know that something interesting is happening at the Park.
