Auburn City Council hears summer recreation program proposal

The Auburn City Council got its first look Thursday at the proposed recreation program to be held at city parks this summer.

Program organizers Jamie Swagler, Brian Muldrow, and Meg Gremlli propose to provide programs in art, literacy, sports and movement, and culinary arts, as well as community service programs at the Bradford St. playground, Casey Park, Clifford Park, the Auburn Housing Authority, Booker T. Washington Center, and West End Park. Auburn City Clerk Chuck Mason says the plan is to offer the programs for free this summer.

Plans are to partner with community organizations including the Auburn Doubledays, Merry Go Round Playhouse, Perform 4 Purpose, Seymour Library, Dickinson Farms, and others. If the City Council gives final approval, the programs will begin on July 5.
