Are you involved in your community?


We all live in communities.
We shop at local businesses, our children go to
local schools, and our families enjoy weekends
in the park. But how many of us are actually
involved in our community?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The health of a community depends on how involved its members are. Communities rely on members to take action when there is a problem and constantly find ways to improve it. 

One way to judge the health of a community is by its parks. Parks are a vital part of any community, especially ours. Its a place where family and friends can gather to enjoy a weekend in the summer. Where we can play sports, picnic and let ourselves relax. It's also a place where are children play everyday. 

So, how healthy is our park and what does this say about the community. Is the park full of trash and litter? Is the play equipment old and broken? Is there graffiti everywhere? Is this a place where you want your children to play?

Watch this video to see just what kind of condition our local park is in: 

Do you want your children playing here? Does your community deserve better?
If not, then it's time to take action and get involved!
