Springfield parks

July 28, 2010 - Dear Editor,

I have lived in Springfield Township and have been involved with Parks and Recreation for the past ten years. All five of my children play on the ball leagues which take place in the township parks. The only reason they are able to participate is due to the low cost of enrollment. I volunteer to coach on the leagues since it's a very worthwhile group activity for kids. The children look forward to playing and often it is because it is the only exposure to organized sports that they get.

My extensive experience with the Parks and recreation includes the organized sports softball, coach pitch, t-ball, and volley ball. The Cub Scouts and Girls Scouts attend several P & R activities a year including the fishing derby and maple syrup tapping demonstration. Adult activities include the world famous road rally which was run with reduced mileage this year due to the cost of fuel. After interacting with P & R staff on all these activities I have realized the entire staff cares about one thing: well being of the community. Time and again they have demonstrated going the extra mile to make sure activities are enjoyable and safe for all.

On Aug 3rd there is a millage proposal for .75 mils to benefit the Springfield Township Parks and Recreation department. My first hand knowledge of the good work the P & R department makes it easy to vote yes. I hope you will too.
