The Parks and Recreation Department is excited about the next year and the opportunities for events and programs.
Regularly, groups call our office asking us to help promote their event or where to start. We, the Parks and Recreation Department and the Parks and Recreation Commission, are interested in finding out about your event that takes place in the parks. Events, such as 5K runs, tournaments and horseshoe throws, are great events to present to the commission.
Public events by nonprofits and other groups are invited to provide information to the commission and be televised on TV-15 during our parks commission meetings. The meetings are on the second Monday of each month except July and December.
If you are interested in attending our park commission, please contact the phone number or e-mail address below.
A few registration deadlines are looming. Spring softball and kickball registration will end at 5 p.m. Friday. This will be a 10-game season. Registration fee is $300. Games start on Feb. 28.
