Appreciation for take-home Activity Kits prepared by Recreation staff was at an all time high this past month as nearly 1500 kits were given away at recreation centers in the month of December.

The holiday-themed kits included a wide variety of fun activities including making candy cane ornaments, 3-D Christmas trees and greeting cards, as well as a New Year’s Eve countdown clock, confetti poppers, and hand painted rocks with messages of hope and peace.  One parent reached out to thank staff for brightening their family's New Year’s celebration by saying, “Thank you for the wonderful activities for New Year’s Eve!! We really needed a little sparkle on our celebration especially this year that we must be away from family and friends!"

The next activity kits will have a Valentine's Day theme, and will be distributed on February 5th, from 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. at any of the City's six recreation centers.
