FORT SMITH FIREBIRDS GETTING SET TO PLAY THIS SEASON

Indianapolis, IN.  The American Basketball Association (ABA) www.abalive.com today announced that the Fort  Smith Firebirds are getting set to begin play this season.  “Jamar  Birdsong, the team Owner/President, has  been working all spring and summer  putting things in place, and we are very pleased that he is ready to go,” stated  ABA CEO Joe Newman.  “Jamar has been playing basketball since the age of  six in Fort Smith,
really loves the game, and he wants to give the youth of the community a  chance to see that they have a chance to further their career in basketball and  to give players a chance that have been overlooked in Fort Smith.”
“We are in a really tough division,” added Birdsong.  “There are many  perennial playoff teams coming out of the ABA’s Southwest Division, including  last year’s Runner Up team, the North Dallas Vandals.  But we know there is  great talent here in Arkansas and it is our goal to find the best available  talent to compete.  Even more than that, however, we want to give our fans  and sponsors something they can be proud of and support and we will do  everything we can to justify their confidence in us.”
Only 25 years old, Jamal and his wife have five children included two sets  of twins.  “I am going to work very hard to make my family proud also,”  commented Birdsong.  “Watch the Fort Smith Firebirds.”  For more  information, visit www.fortsmithfirebirds.com or call  Jamar Birdsong at 479 222 5559 or email marmar2084@yahoo.com or visit www.abalive.com.

Missouri Rhythm Works With KidsTLC

August 19, 2013

Missouri Rhythm

Dear Mr. Newman,

Every year KidsTLC transforms the lives of thousands of children in the community.  Our Psychiatric Residential Treatment program provides healing and hope for abused and neglected children facing the challenges of a mental illness.  Our Behavioral Health and Autism services provide integrated care to children and their families in the community.  Our Street Outreach services team provides resources to homeless and runaway teens throughout the metro area.  All these programs are generously supported by community businesses and volunteers.  One group of volunteers we can always count on is the team from Missouri Rhythm.

Missouri Rhythm players and coaches give their time and resources for our children and programs in many ways.  Over the last few years, Missouri Rhythm players have provided multiple sports clinics on our campus.   These clinics offer our kids opportunities to hear about sportsmanship, goal setting, team work and even to cheer on some impressive dunking skills. Interactions with successful community members provide our kids with a sense of hope for the future.

Along with group projects, Missouri Rhythm President, Bryant Tucker, served as an individual volunteer for our Mid Week Movie Mania summer activity.  Mr. Tucker shared the team popcorn machine, pizza and a great movie with the kids.  Some kids remembered him from the basketball clinic, earlier in the summer.  What a great connection!  We are grateful for the invitation to be the Charity of the Night at the November 23rd  Livin’ the Dream Exhibition Game– a great opportunity to spread the word about KidsTLC, raise support and provide a great outing for our kids and staff.

Missouri Rhythm players and coaches are an invaluable resource and greatly appreciated by the children and staff at KidsTLC.  We look forward to continued involvement with this organization and would like to extend an invitation for you to visit our campus and meet our kids.

 

Sincerely,

 

Elizabeth Hall

KidsTLC Community Liaison
