Recreation This Week - March 22, 2018

Good Afternoon,

I know it is hard to think about summer when it’s dumping snow outside but it will be here before you know it, right? To help plan your summer and get the word out about opportunities available to you, we are hosting the 4th Annual Summer Recreation Open House on Tuesday, March 27 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Mammoth Elementary School MPR. Recreation providers from the Eastern Sierras will be on hand to inform you about what they do and what programs they offer for your children and yourself! Swing by the Mammoth Parks and Recreation booth to sign up for your 5% off coupon (good for one summer transaction with as many summer camps and programs as you like). We hope to see you all on Tuesday!
