Recreation and SportsTweet
Participating in Recreation and Sports activities can assist you in forming friendships, learning new skills and increasing your awareness of the surrounding community. Be an active member of society and have a fulfilling life! Whether it be playing cards, boating, Special Olympics, or simply hanging out, make a promise to yourself to have a little fun each day.
To start, call your local, public school system or community parks and recreation programs and ask to be placed on their mailing lists to receive current information on recreational programs in your area. For adaptive recreation, contact your local county commission for persons with disabilities, Center for Independent Living or community disability organizations.
