Message from the Director

Mickey A. Gomez, CPRP

This issue of the RECREATOR is the fall

program showcase of all the varied

classes and events we will facilitate for

the remainder of 2009. While the RECREATOR

is indeed the City’s program booklet, it also

describes one who chooses to participate in socially

acceptable activities to derive benefits. I

have discussed in my messages, over the years,

the various benefits that can be gained from

recreating, along with the fact that the benefits

are, indeed, ENDLESS. A realistic take many park and recreation professionals

have on the word RECREATE is RE-CREATE. This is, after all, a most

descriptive use of the word, and it also hits home with this edition’s theme:

RE-DISCOVER the BENEFITS OF PARKS & RECREATION.

What new challenge have you thought to take? Did you master Tai-Chi?

The next level belt in Karate? The bidding process in bridge? Volunteer at

Gumbo Limbo to teach a class? Wasn’t going to that next play at the Sugar

Sand Willow Theater on your “to do” list?

Take that next step to RE- DISCOVER a benefit you haven’t yet received.

You’ll probably be surprised.

This is somewhat ironic, as staff look at the fall as a new beginning. The

recreation programs take on new sessions in September, and the City

budget cycle begins anew in October. It gets to be confusing, with the

2009 year ending for some, and the budget and program life of Recreation

Services being the beginning of a new year. Like staff starting over with

budget and program years, the thought of new challenges can be yours.

RE-DISCOVER the BENEFITS OF PARKS & RECREATION. ...you’ll be glad

you did !
