Sports and Recreation seems to have a prominent place in the Slinger Area past and present. The research shown is a collaboration between students and the residents of the Slinger Area in trying to document and preserve some stories and facts about Slinger Area Sports and Recreation.  What is shown is a work-in-progress.  Students are researching things a little bit at a time.
