The Board realizes that there are mutual community interests in helping people of all ages to learn, develop and participate in recreation, culture and leisure activities. Every effort will be made to undertake joint and cooperative ventures to serve the Community’s needs for recreation, culture and leisure activities in promoting a healthy lifestyle.
