Tyrone playground program to start Monday

Tyrone’s Park Avenue Playground Program is scheduled to start on Monday and will continue through August 25.
The program is sponsored by Tyrone Borough and will feature arts, crafts and special guests. Monday’s kickoff will feature an introduction that day and the name game.
Other activities for the first week include paper lanterns on Tuesday, Easter day on Wednesday, window stickers on Thursday and doorknob hangers on Friday.
The director of the program is Bree Gurekovich and a number of “Bree’s craft days” are scheduled this summer. Those dates are June 21, July 13 and Aug. 15.
The program runs from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday, except on Tuesday, July 4 when no program is scheduled. A Fourth of July party with crafts will be held on Monday, July 3.
Other highlights include a play day at Reservoir Park on Monday, July 24 and water fun days on the first three Fridays in August. The program wraps up with a end of the year pizza party on Aug. 25.
Copies of the entire schedule for the Park Avenue Playground program are available at the municipal building on Logan Avenue. Scheduled events are subject to change. A brochure about this year’s program mentioned special guest appearances will be made throughout the program, but did not specify dates or the guests who will appear.
The brochure also provided some guidelines for those participating in it. It said the program is designed for elementary-age children. Children five and under must be accompanied by an adult.
The rules also noted children’s behavior is the responsibility of their parent or guardian. Other rules include no tobacco or intoxicating substances in the playground area and no obscene language.
Refuse should be disposed in designated containers. No glass is allowed in the playground. Program officials also ask that equipment not be abused. Playground workers have jurisdiction over the playground area.
The program brochure states the goal is “to provide a safe, healthy, and fun environment for children to play.”
