McAllister Recreation Center programming updates:

*In response to developments regarding COVID-19, out of the health and safety of our children, staff, and community, we feel that it is the best decision at this time to cancel our Youth Flag Football league. We look forward to hosting Youth Flag Football league again in 2021. 

As far as other programs, we will be closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and make a decision as we get closer to scheduled start dates.  We thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times and we will share additional updates as soon as they become available
