Youngsville City Mayor Kin Ritter announced today that this weekend wraps up the final of 5 youth athletic World Series events in Youngsville.

"These events are awesome for their economic value, but also for the character it builds in our future leaders.", says Ritter. "Investment in recreation is a solid bet!"
