Spring is Coming! As I write this, snow is coming down outside my window, but spring is in the air. It is staying light a little longer, the birds are returning to the area, and it just smells like spring in the mornings.
This is also the time of year when Youth Bureau Staff are buzzing with excitement and new energy. Recreation is gearing up for spring sports, expressive art programs, martial arts and more. Ithaca Bike Rental is tuning up bikes and preparing for a new rental season. Youth Employment Services will begin accepting applications from teens for summer jobs.
College Discovery Program and Paul Schreurs Program are helping students complete their school year, some graduating and entering college or the work world. Recreation Support Services are preparing to hit the parks and provide a new season of recreation and leisure opportunities to their participants. Big Brothers Big Sisters is welcoming a new staff member and doing a spring recruit for mentors. And Outings is preparing groups for outdoor adventure trips this spring.
It may be snowing, but we are getting ready and can't wait to see everyone this spring!
