DON’T LET GOOD PROGRAMS FADE AWAY!

Nothing destroys a recreation program faster than participants who wait until the last mi-
nute to register! There is a point when a program must be canceled or modified due to in-
sufficient registration. All programs require a high level of coordination often involving facili-

ty scheduling, staffing, volunteer recruitment, and purchasing of supplies!

PLEASE REGISTER EARLY!
