P&R offers holiday cheer, recreation, and volunteer opportunities

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

The Friends of JS Acker Park are kicking off the holiday season by announcing the arrival of their 17th annual Prescott holiday card to benefit JS Acker Memorial Park. The 2011 card image contributed by local landscape photographer Rich Charpentier from the Ian Russel Gallery on Whisky Row features a radiant and sparkling holiday lit Courthouse Plaza, the pride of Prescott, Arizona's Christmas City. Proceeds raised this year will be earmarked for a planned park endowment fund.

Customers can choose a message card or blank sets of 10 cards. The message inside reads, "Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year from Prescott, Arizona." Cards are affordably priced at $7 per set.


The City of Prescott Parks and Recreation invites you to join The Trekabout Hiking Club. The club meets every Tuesday from 8:00am to 9:00am and every Thursday from 8:00am to 10:00am for guided hikes. Locations vary each day and trails are rated from 1 to 4, based on difficulty. Cost is $12.00 for membership through December 2012.
