2023 Spring/Summer Play by Play

Page 1

Before drafting this letter, I decided to gain some insight by reviewing a draft of this Play By Play. Wow was the first thing that came to mind! I was quickly reminded how great Temple is. Your Parks and Recreation Department along with the Temple Public Library are offering some great events and classes that literally span all ages.

Mark your calendars for some key upcoming events: the Bloomin Temple Festival, the Annual HEB Fourth of July Firework Show, and the Summer Reading Program at the Temple Library.

Be sure to connect with us online at templeparks.com or exploretpl.com, on Facebook and on Instagram to stay up to date on the latest news, information and all the FUN happenings this spring/ summer! I hope you can find time to relax, unwind and enjoy everything Temple Parks & Recreation and the Library has to offer.
