Mobile Recreation

Mobile Recreation will be making its rounds this summer to local city parks.  Below are the scheduled dates/times/locations. We ask that anyone who intends to participate in the mobile recreation activities arrive at the scheduled start times. If we do not have any participants within 30-45 minutes of the scheduled start time we will unfortunately have to cancel. If you have any questions please call the Torner Center at 812-232-0147.

We are excited to meet all the kids this summer and cannot wait to be able to offer a trailer of fun!
