Adult Softball Survey

We are conducting a survey about Pendleton Parks and Recreation’s adult softball program and would like your assitance. The survey is designed for those who have participated in the league this year or in past years. The link has been posted on our softball Facebook page, our regular facebook page and emailed to valid addresses we had on file. Each computer can take the survey only once.

Here is a link to the survey:


For those who have thought about participating in our softball league, but have NOT, you can still provide input by emailing your comments to GoPlayPPR@ci.pendleton.or.us. Thanks to everyone for their help!

Walla Walla Wine Tour - Saturday, October 4
