GREETINGS FROM MAYOR MICHAEL J. McGLYNN
Welcome to our 2014 Summer Recreation guide. We hope that this brochure, in concert with our web site www.medfordma.org, will prove to be a depository for you and your family when planning your summer activities.
We wish to thank the East Cambridge Savings Bank for their fourth consecutive year of support of our parks program through their generous donation. With their support, we are able to provide some of the activities outlined in this brochure along with providing summer jobs for the youth of our city.
We will continue to offer two park instructors at the following locations: Carr Park; Harris Park; Morrison Park and Tufts Park. The park program will run from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. each weekday from July 7th, 2014 to August 15th, 2014. This program is free of charge for 5 to 16 year olds in our community. Locations are subject to change based on attendance.
In addition, we have worked with various MHS coaches to offer reduced price athletic camps throughout the summer. For a fee of $55 per week, campers will be able to select a camp that suits their interest. Camps run daily from 9 A.M. to 12 noon. My thanks go to the coaches and their staff for participating in this program!
This year, Medford Community Rowing program will continue to offer extensive programming. As you may be aware, Crew is a varsity sport at MHS in the fall and spring seasons and is growing in interest each and every year. We thank MHS Crew and Friends of Medford Rowing for their commitment to this program and for making lessons available to youth and adults this summer at a reasonable price!
Tried and true, the Medford Family Network will continue to offer “Traveling Playgroups in the Park” and family concerts at Wrights Pond. The Library will also offer extensive programming with the assistance of two new energetic Librarians hired this year.
While some of the programs have a cost associated with them, please inquire if you are in need of financial assistance.
We hope that you find this medley of programming of interest to you and your children this summer. Our goal is to keep the kids safe, provide physical fitness and allow them to interact with many of the wonderful people that make Medford a
special place to live.
Michael J. McGlynn, Mayor
