PRCA Volunteers Make a Difference at Active Streets


The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs (PRCA) Department’s Volunteer Services happily participated in Active Streets in late February. Active Streets produces vibrant community events that encourages, facilitate ongoing dialogue, and create a sense of ownership over the streets. The event itself stretched throughout Depot Park, from South Main Street to the beginning of the Hawthorne Connector Trail.

Among the vendors, PRCA pitched its tent on the north side of the Cade Museum site where participants of all ages found intriguing activities on hand.  There were trivia games and spin-the-wheel with questions about PRCA and Black History Month. There were also arts and crafts, water ping-pong, Nerf ball target toss and bubble blowing.  All of the activities engaged families as a whole, generating huddles to determine answers to trivia questions and endless laughter.

With the coordination of interim Volunteer Program Coordinator LaShundra Coley’Hale, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., worked with PRCA to make the booth activities fun and interactive for both children and adults.
