Thoughts and Prayers with Jenn Johnson
AYSO Families and Friends-
All of us here at AYSO 211 are shocked at Tuesday night’s crash involving a group of bicyclists in Kalamazoo. The Registrar for AYSO Region 211, Jennifer Johnson, was among those riding and injured in the tragic event and currently she is listed in fair condition. Jennifer is a valuable member of our regional board and we ask that the AYSO community keep Jennifer and her family, along with all of those affected by this tragedy, in their thoughts and prayers.
