Another Day of Play

For about 7 summers I worked at a Mesa Parks and Recreation summer camp.  I loved it.  It was a great way to entertain kids during the summer - swimming, crafts, games.  Everyday was exhausting because of the work we put in so the kids could have a great summer.  Now, financial times are a little more difficult and Mesa Parks and Recreation is working hard to ensure that families who can not afford summer programs still get a chance through scholarships.

"Working in partnership with the Foundation for Mesa Parks and Recreation, the City of Mesa Parks, Recreation and Commercial Facilities will be hosting their third Community Day of Play on Saturday, May 8. The event will take place at Countryside Park, 3130 E. Southern Ave. from noon to 4:00 PM"

"For just $8 a bracelet, your child can have unlimited access to inflatable rides, bounce houses, obstacle courses, carnival games, and a petting zoo. All games are geared towards children from preschool to 8th grade. The proceeds will go towards awarding scholarships to children who cannot afford summer recreation programs."
