One of the most popular citywide summer programs kicks off Tuesday with a new name.
The Randy Naylor Summer Program, previously called Streetball, begins at 4 p.m. Tuesday at Warren Central Junior High and Vicksburg Junior High schools.
Sponsored by the Vicksburg Police Department, children ages 7-18 will be able to participate in a slew of basketball, flag football, soccer, dodgeball games and sack races four days a week until July 2.
“A lot of kids will end up registering, we just want to get the word out and let everyone know they can sign up ahead of time,” said investigator Tommy Curtis, who is helping oversee the program honoring the late law enforcement officer who died in November.
“They can come get a registration form from the police department.”
A $10 fee covers the cost for the program that is held from 4 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
For more information, Curtis, Lois Roby or Wanda Davis may be contacted at the Vicksburg Police Department at 601-636-2511.
Naylor, who first joined the VPD in 1988, was an investigator in the department’s juvenile division and, since 2008, served as the Warren County central district constable until his death.
