Sand Volleyball Fun
Every Sunday  evening around 5 o'clock, the group called the Dirty South, meet over at the volleyball court by the railroad tracks in Russell and play some volleyball.  They sometimes bring hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. and grill out,  and just go to have a great time.  Everyone is invited to come and join in the fun.  This group would welcome all the new players that might be interested to come and play or just watch. The whole family is invited and the children have a great time of meeting new friends and also having fun.  So come one and all and see what the game of volleyball is all about at the Russell Court. You need not be from Russell, the people from   surrounding communities are invited.  (It is good to see the court being used.)
