Anniston Parks and Recreation has been busy with our Commit To Health summer! As part of our Healthy Out of School Time grant from the National Recreation and Parks Association, all community centers and the Aquatic and Fitness Center are now Commit To Health sites. Each site promotes healthy living through healthy eating and physical activity.
June was Berries and Peppers month. Day Camps at Hodges Community Center and the Aquatic and Fitness Center enjoyed various activities from “Red Pepper Green Pepper” to Tasty Treats to try new foods. In July we will be learning about tropical fruits and melons.
For more information, see one of your local centers or follow the Anniston Aquatic and Fitness Center on facebook or twitter.
