July is Park and Recreation Month - A Lifetime of Discovery: Find Your Park - Part One
By Dwight Hunter
One of my favorite guides to work on and to update each year is this guide: Park & Recreation Month Guide.
This is part one of a three-part blog series about this guide. It is a fun guide to find park and recreation resources, and to view embedded videos, and to explore links and much more.
In my senior year in high school, I decided to take what I thought was an easy course called Recreational Sports. It wasn't easy. I learned how to play racquetball & volleyball, how to bowl, do archery, practice rifle target shooting; and I learned slow pitch softball, trampoline tricks, rappelling, golf, and disc golf. Those recreational lessons are still with me today.
Use the information in the guide to find a park near you! As always each year, there are pictures submitted by the library staff that can be viewed -- more about the KLIC staff pictures in part two of the blog series!
The National Park Service released this statement on July 1: "This month, declare your feelings, connections, and goals about national parks! Using the hashtag #IDeclare, declare what national parks mean to you, what parks you and your family will visit this summer, or just why you love visiting parks!"
Enjoy a fun summer - discover a park, see how people have recreational fun, and make a lifetime of discovery!
