Ron Krebs for Island Rec

Dear Editor:

As a parent and a law enforcement officer, I recognize the effect teamwork and sports has on our young people.  It improves their self-esteem, provides a sense of belonging and self-worth and is a productive way to let off steam.  Sports, along with after school programs, keep kids occupied in supervised activities and out of trouble.

The leader in providing these programs has always been Island Rec.  They provide funding for local school sports, afterschool activities, caretake our local parks and soon will oversee the new community ball fields.  In order to continue providing all these things, Island Rec needs our help with a new levy.

The benefits of helping our youth are clear. By giving to Island Rec we are giving back to our community and to our youth for years to come.  Please join me in supporting the upcoming Island Rec levy.
