Today is National Park and Recreation Professionals Day! πŸŽ‰We are celebrating with @nrpa all this month, but today in particular we have to shout it out to all of our staff keeping things running behind the scenes now and in years past. Right now we're doing things like distributing Focus Hope meal boxes and Busy Boxes, hanging out virtually to keep you connected, and eagerly getting the building ready for the day we can safely welcome you back. From our administrative staff answering phones and emails, to our parks staff helping maintain playgrounds and facilities, thank you for EVERYTHING you do for the Troy community! Plus, we're thinking of our programmers, camp counselors, and lifeguards that we miss so much this year. Hats off to you! #nrpa #weareparksandrecreation #parksandrec #troymi #troyrec #recreationprofessionals #parksandrecprofessionalsday

Dear Elaine Bo, As I saw on WDIV Local 4 Act of Kindness reporter Sandra Ali, will the Summer Camps be in person or online due to COVID-19 and social distancing?
Hi, as a Community Outreach Specialist at Life Line Screening, The Nation's leading provider in preventative healthcare, I wanted to let the community know about the Stroke and Vascular Disease Prevention screenings we are having in the community for seniors! Below is a link to our event taking place at St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church on Wednesday, December 11th. Every Like, Tag, or Share could save a life. Thank you. https://business.facebook.com/events/2123175001312806/
The weather is beautiful and I thought it would be nice to go for a walk in Raintree Park today, however it seems that it hasn’t been sprayed for mosquitoes yet! Had to leave it was extremely uncomfortable and I noticed hardly anybody is there. I was there in June with my grandchildren and it was just as bad, people were leaving because of the mosquitoes! Aren’t the parks being sprayed this year?
...without question THE best behaved players i have consistently umpired. i umpire the Thursday E league at Flynn. These guys are great. i hustle. do my best and miss a call now and then. NO issues. A great league, ethnically and racially diverse, fun, and great hustle. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
Hi!! Any update on when the dog park will be up and running again?? (And if there was a hose there to wash them off after that would be a bonus!)

While I love having a dog park in the area I hate that every time I’m here I pick up shards of broken glass in addition to πŸ’©πŸ’©. People-please keep an eye out for your pets safety.
Is it possible to have some outdoor ice rinks for those who like to skate in the winter. Growing up in Clawson, the City always had outdoor ice rinks for the residents to use without any cost.
