Dear Chamblee Residents, In the upcoming months the days will stretch a little longer, the weather will warm up and the parks will be alive with the play of carefree children that includes the bustle of campers, the sounds of teams cheering and the program participants laughing. Summertime is a great example of how Chamblee’s Parks and Recreation Department strives to bring the community quality programs, camps and activities for all ages to enjoy. This work is made possible by the amazing staff that work in our parks, buildings and programs. The Parks and Recreation Department is supported by four full time employees, eight seasonal employees, two park rangers, several parks maintenance staff, a recreation advisory committee and dozens of volunteers. It is this group of people that make our Chamblee’s Parks and Recreation Department award winning. Most recently the department received four Georgia Recreation and Parks Association (GRPA) awards: District 6 - Agency of the Year for exemplary work to deliver recreation, park or leisure related services; State and District 6 - Distinguished Young Professional – Katie Sears, who has made an outstanding and lasting contribution to Chamblee’s leisure services; and State Volunteer of the Year Award (for population 20,001 to 50,000) Mr. and Mrs. Ray Wtulich, whose efforts have had a lasting effect also on Chamblee’s recreation and leisure services programs. Congratulations to the award winners, and keep an eye on Chamblee’s Parks and Recreation Department as there are a lot of great things in store for 2020, including all the wonderful spring and summer programs listed in this edition of the activity guide! Most sincerely yours, Jodie Gilfillan, CPRP Chamblee Parks and Recreation Director

Chamblee Parks and Rec Wins Big! Chamblee’s Parks and Recreation Department (CPRD) recently won big at the Georgia Recreation and Parks Association (GRPA) District 6 Annual Awards Banquet, winning District 6 Agency of the Year and District 6 Distinguished Young Professional Award – Katie Sears. CPRD is one of 25 agencies in the district which has more than 225 members. “To win these awards at the district level is a big honor,” said Chamblee Parks and Rec Director Jodie Gilfillan. “At the district level, there is only one winner and no population category, so you are competing against large departments, with large numbers of parks, staff and budgets. It is equally competitive to win the distinguished professional award and Mrs. Sears has earned every piece of this award by serving on several local and state committees, completing GRPA leadership classes, earning certifications and more than doubling the number of programs offered in Chamblee.” Chamblee Parks & Recreation • www.chambleega.gov

Pickleball Open Play Pickleball Open Play is a great way to meet other Pickleball players in the community, exchange information and even form teams. POP at Keswick is NOT a Chamblee-sponsored program, but rather a “reserved” time for the Pickleball community to play. However, Pickleball players are welcome to use the courts any other time throughout the week, as long as a Chamblee-sponsored program (like Up4Tennis) is not occurring. Tennis players MUST vacate the courts during Pickleball Open Play, so long as there are enough teams to use both courts. Otherwise, tennis players may stay on the one court. POP players are required to bring all their own equipment, except for the netting, which is already on the courts. POP players must put down the nets to the appropriate height (36” high at the sidelines and 34” high in the middle) and then put them back up to the appropriate tennis net height (36” all the way across). For any other Pickleball rules or guidelines questions, please visit the USAPA’s website: www.usapa.org No registration required - just show up!
