Austin Smith, the new Summer Rec. Program Coordinator for Harrison’s Parks & Rec, stops by the “Around the Table” program on KHOZ Friday about upcoming summer events.
“I’m excited for the summer. We’ve got a bunch of kids,” Smith says. He said he wants the program to be the best in the state. Pickleball starts next week Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8. Smith calls it “human-sized ping pong.”
Smith said a lot of the schools are getting involved in this program. Smith said the program is full but there is a need for male counselors. Umpires, concession workers and more are needed. Workers have to be 16 but can be 14 with a work permit.
