E1Mayor Carlo DeMaria recently stopped in to visit with local Everett youth who attended the Recreation Department’s “Back to School Jam” Basketball Camp. The camp was held in the final weeks of summer for kids ages 6-12. A last hurrah before the new school year, both boys and girls got in some last minute basketball instruction and play time. The program ran from 9am-2pm everyday for the final two weeks of summer vacation, and was free for Everett residents. The Mayor enjoyed visiting with the youth, “These Recreation programs are so vital to the children in our community. They provide positive, constructive activities for them to partake in, especially during vacations and the summer months. I always look forward to visiting with them and talking to them about their interests and experiences.”
