Make your plans for the month ahead with our list of five things to know for March.
Love Parker campaign underway:
The Love Parker campaign is in full swing and you’re invited to tell us why you Love Parker!
Join us for our next event at the Parker Fieldhouse, 18700 E. Plaza Drive, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 11. All you have to do to get some Love Parker gear is stop by our video/photo booth and tell us why you Love Parker. If you can’t visit us in person, go to www.P3Parker.com/LoveParker and enter to win a Love Parker beanie by filling out a quick form about why you love this great community.
Local businesses can participate, too. Visit www.P3Parker.com/LoveParker and fill out our online form to tell us what you love about our community. Participants will get a Love Parker sticker to display on your storefront. Your comments will be used to help market Parker and our local business community and give you a chance to host a Love Parker pop-up event at your business.
Watch our social media channels for more chances to win prizes through promotions and upcoming pop-up events around Town.
Spring activity and camp registration open:
There’s plenty of fun to be had and things to learn with one of Parker Arts’ or Parker Parks and Recreation’s spring classes, sports leagues and camps.
To review Cultural Department offerings, visit the spring break camps and education pages. Parker Parks and Recreation information can be accessed on the spring break camps and sports pages.
And for those who like to plan ahead, registration is already open for some summer activities. Visit the Parker Arts and Parker Parks and Recreation websites for details.
Cram the Cruiser begins March 29:
Join the Parker Police as we Cram our Cruisers for the Parker Task Force. All donations will be used to fill backpacks that are provided to qualifying Parker-area kids each Friday throughout the school year. Backpacks are filled with enough food to get kids through the weekends when they don't have access to nutritious meals from school.
Donation boxes will be set up at Town Hall, the Parker Recreation Center, Parker Fieldhouse and in the Police Department lobby March 29 through April 4. You can help by donating individual-sized food items including applesauce, canned pasta, individual crackers, fruit cups, fruit snacks, granola bars, instant oatmeal, mac and cheese, single serving cereals and pudding cups.
Busy month for arts and cultural presentations:
March offers a flurry of activities at both the PACE Center and The Schoolhouse. These include Roseanne Cash with John Leventhal — She Remembers Everything, Cake Master Live: Demo with Duff, and An Evening with Illusionist Rick Thomas.
