Annual Park Avenue Playground program gets under way June 11

The program will be held at the Park Avenue Playground,
With local schools wrapping up classes for the summer very soon, Tyrone Borough will be kicking off their summer playground program.
This will be held at the Park Avenue Playground, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. The program will begin on Monday, June 11 and will run until Friday, August 24, with the exception of the 4th of July. There will be no program held on that date.
The program will once again be under the direction of Bree Gurekovich, who will be assisted by Stacy Shaffer.
The goal of the program is to provide a safe, healthy and fun environment for children to play. Programs offered are designated for elementary-age children.
