Recreation levy important to children

Published 9:23am Tuesday, October 29, 2013

As a resident of this community, I would like to encourage all Ironton residents to come out on Nov. 5 to vote yes for the Ironton Recreation Levy.

As a mother of three, I spent a number of years attending games, running concessions and hosting end of season parties. These were experiences I wouldn’t change for the world.

Organized sports teaches our youth team work, structure and discipline, the very characteristics that we need to instill into Ironton’s future leaders.

Investing into our youth is one aspect of investing into our future.

If we want our youth to succeed, we have to equip them with the necessary skill sets to succeed.

The levy is a renewal No new fees.

Please join me and vote yes on Nov. 5 to send a clear message to our children that we believe in them and are prepared to invest into their future.
