November News & Updates

We are just about one week away from our 4th annual Robert Tedford Memorial Road Race and we are finally looking forward to beautiful fall weather to serve as the background for this exceptional event. The road race was created to honor longtime Recreation Director Robert Tedford and all proceeds are put toward projects that promote or enhance recreational facilities and opportunities. So please join us in honoring Bob the best way we know how to...by enjoying the outdoors! 

Please feel free to peruse the programs that still have openings this fall and please also note that basketball registration ends for all programs on November 15. 

We look forward to seeing you outside this fall!
