A Letter to Recreation Participants - July 6, 2020

Dear Participants,

I hope this letter finds you in good health. Due to the COVID-19 virus, the Recreation Department was closed, and the staff, including myself, were temporarily laid off. We recognize that this caused frustration for many of our valued participants. I am happy to announce that we are in the process of re-opening Recreation! We are looking forward to providing you the same incredible level of programming you have come to know and love!

Your patience is greatly appreciated as the Recreation Department reorganizes to bring you new and exciting programs that we can all enjoy while maintaining the Center for Disease Control’s health and safety guidelines. Our participants' health is our number one concern.

We will be communicating with you throughout this process to provide you up to date information on the new and exciting changes that we will be making to provide you amazing programming.

Many of you will be receiving refunds for the trips, events, and programs that were paid for, but had to be closed and cancelled due to COVID-19.

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. You can call the recreation phone at 732-493-0225 or email 


Margie London
Recreation Manager
