Clubs will be offered each quarter during the calendar year in collaboration with volunteers from the community who are passionate about sharing their area of expertise.
“We are excited to have expanded the Parks and Recreation department in 2022 to include a Program and Activities Manager. This position is dedicated to expanding our offerings to community members of all ages and of varying interests,” says Shay Dunnigan, Director of Pulaski County Parks and Recreation. “It’s important that we continuously evolve the Parks and Recreation platform to reach more people in support of stronger physical, mental, and emotional health. Pulaski County Clubs is one of many new ways we intend to connect with our community moving forward.”

Anyone is welcome to register and participate in Pulaski County Clubs, however, in the event a club reaches maximum registration, Pulaski County residents will be prioritized.
According to Kinder, the department welcomes the opportunity to explore new club interests for the remainder of 2023. “We would love the opportunity to meet with community members to discuss their area of expertise and how our department can support them in sharing that with the community through the Pulaski County Clubs platform.”
