Rec Center busy in June

I f the month of June is any indicator, it appears that the Whitehall Recreation Center is in store for a successful summer and potentially a busy fall as well.
Julie Eagan, the recreation center’s director called June a “busy month” and that was even before the summer program got started last Monday.
“We had 18 baseball games for the youth league all-star tournament, we were using all three fields, pretty much all the time.” Eagan said, “We made about $4,000 off of that tournament alone.”
The business for the Rec. Center will continue as July gets into full swing as well, as the Rec. Center has started up its summer program and will also be holding its annual ‘Summer Splash.’
“Our summer program started and we had two times the number of kids we were anticipating for each event.” Eagan added. “Plus we are serving 25-30 lunches to kids per day.”
Some of the events that the summer program has been and will be supplying include bingo, arts and crafts and dance classes; in addition to the various other activities that take place daily at the center.
In addition to the success of the summer program thus far, the center is also preparing for its third annual ‘Summer Splash’ on Saturday, July 19.
“Everyone comes in their bathing suits, we have water balloon fights, slip and slides and there is water everywhere.” Eagan explained.
In addition to the usual activities at ‘Summer Splash, the Rec. Center will be bringing in a large bounce house as well. The bounce house will be rented from a Queensbury-based company and is well within the confines of the Rec. Center’s budget.
It is pretty clear that July will be yet another busy month for the Rec. Center and that momentum may even carry over into August and the fall season with programs such as flag football, pee wee wrestling, baseball and some other programming.
