THE “NEW” NORMAL
As summer soon approaches and we start to return to what I call the “new” normal, there are three things I look forward to in the next few months that we were unable to enjoy last summer.
The first thing I am looking forward to is spring and summer sports programs that will be back starting in early May! While mask mandates and social distancing rules have not been finalized, I know the recreation staff will do everything they can to keep everyone safe and happy. Please have patience during this transition, as we are all learning this new “normal” together.
Second is the amenity I am most looking forward to: the Roy Aquatic Center. The center will open Saturday May 29th (weather permitting) through Labor Day. It is not just Roy residents who love this facility; we see people from all over Northern Utah who come to have fun. There are 10 punch passes available now that can be purchased at the Roy Complex, so spread the word. Let’s show these visitors how welcoming and gracious the Roy community is.
And last, I am excited for the return of Roy Days. I serve on the planning committee, and we have lots of fun ideas in mind for this year’s festivities. Roy Days is the second largest city celebration in Weber County, so there are lots of things to coordinate and finalize. Although we are still in the early stages of planning, the current agenda includes the parade, fireworks, and a scaled back celebration at Roy West Park. Please know we are doing our best to make each event as safe and memorable as possible.
As 2021 progresses, my hope is that the return of these programs and facilities will give all of us cause to celebrate!
