RECREATION PASSES

Most recreation programs require a Rec. photo pass for participation. It is used to offer programs at reduced charges or free of charge, to control participation by non-residents, and to give us access to emergency information. Passes can be purchased at the Recreation Office Monday through Friday, 1:00pm-4:00pm during the summer season, 2:30-5:00 the rest of the year, and at special hours during program registrations. A valid driverís license, or similar form of identification is required. Children will not be given a pass until a parent or guardian has completed the registration information.

This is the 1st year of our two-year pass system.
