Letter from the Director (Fall/Winter 2019)

Whoa, what a summer it has been! The Recreation Center has officially been open for four months now and thesummer season was an amazing show of community support for the new facility. We especially want to thank our members for their patience as we continue to work out the kinks that come along with such an amazing multi-use building. Every day the center is open it is full of community members of all ages enjoying everything that the facilityhas to offer. Whether it’s a lively game of pick-up basketball, seniors participating in our SAIL exercise program, familiesenjoying the lazy river, or just socializing in the community lobby, there is no doubt that the facility is in full use.

The initial feedback we are receiving from our members has been very positive. People are enjoying the facility.People who take a tour are pleased with the layout and variety of equipment that we have to offer and often initiate a membership at the conclusion of their tour. Community members finally have a place close to home that supports ahealthy lifestyle and promotes community.

It has been rewarding watching our community members coming together and socializing with each other which isstrengthening the fabric of our community.

As we move into the fall months, we are excited about the packed schedule of programs, events, and activities that our Parks & Recreation Staff have put together. Planning fall activities for the whole family couldn’t be more fun, and theAirway Heights community can look forward to opportunities to get active, try something new, and celebrate annual traditions. We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces in our many upcoming programs and events.

Thank you, and we hope to see you out enjoying a season full of fun here in Airway Heights.
