This poster can be used in a number of ways to engage your community in your Park and Recreation Month activities. A few ideas:

  • Print out the poster and have your community take pictures with it
  • Hang it up at your Park and Recreation Month event locations
  • Hang it up in any and all of your facilities
  • Give it to your mayor or town council to hang in their offices

As always, we love to see how you use the poster and other materials, so take lots of pictures and videos, and share them with us on social media using #GameOnJuly. A hard copy of the poster was included in the May 2019 print issue of Parks & Recreation magazine.
