Matawan Recreation Commission is holding its Annual Turkey Trot & Fitness Walk on Saturday, November 29, 2008. Registration : 8am, Race time: 10am. Where: Matawan Community Center 201 Broad Street.
Proceeds to benefit Matawan Parks.
The last request to utilize funds by the Recreation Commission was for signage for the parks. While this is a wonderful idea to beautify Matawan, a thought comes to mind. Matawan Parks are NOT handicap friendly. When financially possible (aware of Matawan's Budget deficit) don't you think people would be better served by making our parks accessible to the handicapped? While signs are pretty, parks are for people, all the people. Something to think about as the Recreation Commission wants the proceeds from this event earmarked for Matawan Parks only. As the head of this event and Recreation Committee is the prominent Physical Therapist, Michael Mullaney, we are sure he would agree with us.
