R I ' fkS ecreation PARKS AND REC REPORT BY TODD 'KJELLAND VVVVW.PR-PARKS,COM Finding the way to fall It seems like summer just began and now it is time to talk about fall activities. Before we get into that, I do wish to compliment my summer staff. On both the parks side and the pool deck. I an: impressed at the way these young people have matured intc~ responsible adults. Without their willingness to put in long hours for minimum pay and minimum respect, I could not possibly cover all the demands that gives this community new programs, clean parks and safe facilities. Summer jobs are a training ground inwhich society can mold and nurture tomorrow's workforce. As adults we are ALL responsible in being valuable citizens by helping these young people be the best they can be. I encourage all citizens to vohmteer their time to help guide our future and be an even greater example for the betterment of our community.
