DE PERE - Football is on the minds of many this weekend.
But for some local kids, Saturday was all about baseball!
2012 marks the fifth year for the Jason Berken Baseball Camp.
Berken is a 2002 graduate of West De Pere High School and is currently a pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles.
Local youth get a chance to practice with the pros.
The two-day camp helps kids learn about drills in pitching, catching, hitting, and more.
Berken says it's just a great way for him to give back to his hometown community.
"We try to focus on a lot more than just baseball. It's important for me to tell these kids you know I'm a major league baseball player, but first and foremost I try to be a good person and try doing anything I can to help. And we try and spread that word to them as well," said Berken.
There were more than 100 kids who attended the camp.
Berken says he's already planning for next year's event.
First responders helped ring in the holidays at the 45th annual Howard-Suamico Christmas Parade.
Christmas is just two and half weeks away, and kids and families are getting into the holiday spirit.
Single digit temps around the area caused problems in the Fox Valley Saturday morning.
The frigid temperatures forced some area communities to cancel their weekend Christmas celebrations. But New London braved the cold for its annual Holiday of Wonder Parade.
Maybe it's the weather. Maybe it's all of the injuries, but many Packers fans are saying "no thanks," to this weekend's Packers game.
With only a little snow on the ground in places, snowmobilers are ready for more. In the Lakewood area, trails are not yet open, but clubs are gearing up for an early start to the season.
