We read, research, ask questions, attend meetings and genuinely have an interest in "Knowing". Communication is defined as : the imparting or interchange of thoughts, opinions, or information by speech, writing, or signs. There are many forms of communication today; newspapers, radio, TV, emaiL texting, phone, newsletters, internet sites, Facebook, Twitter, word of mouth to name a few. Unfortunately every person has their own preferred way to get "in the know". One of the areas I noticed when I started this job was that communication between the Parks Department and with the public was limited. In the past two years ] have incorporated a Parks and Rec web site and Facebook page to bring communications into the present. These single two fomas of communication are the most cost effective and time effective ways to reach as many people as possible. I will be incorporating a monthly newsletter by email next month to also increase the commtmity communication. The primary means ofcomnmnication for the Parks mad Rec will be our Facebook page and web site. Both are available to access at We also use Google Calendars for our sports schedules which you can set up to notify you by email or textwhen changes occur. If you need help setting up a Facebook account or Google Calendars account to receive our notices, I would be happy to set up a class to help get you get started. There will be a lot of information regarding the Park District coming up this spring and summer and this is a very busy time for all of us. I will do my best to post information in atimely manner on Facebook and on the website, but you can always give me a call or text message at 701- 331-2956.
