Roy Citizens work together

Thank you to all who worked so hard to put on another successful Roy Days! We made a few changes to the parade and security at the park. These changes will be evaluated to determine if they will continue next year.

The “Welcome to Roy City” signs on the north and south borders have been finished and installed. Thank you to Jay Jones for his wonderful craftsmanship.

Fundraising is continuing for the Roy Complex. Thanks to all who have supported our efforts. We feel confident we will meet our financial goal and start repairs on the pool within the next few months. We hope to make it an inviting venue for all citizens to take advantage of. All other facilities are still available and will be available while renovations are being done on the pool and locker rooms.

Record-breaking temperatures, along with a severe drought, have taken a toll on yards, parks, and properties of Roy. It is known that grass will always grow back in the spring, but once a tree is dead, it is not coming back! I hope the citizens of Roy will put forth an effort to save the trees that line our streets and yards throughout the city to help keep it beautiful. Let’s hope for record snow this winter to help fill our reservoirs this spring. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for cooler temperatures to prevail!

With fall approaching fast, the annual Halloween Trunk-or-Treat is just around the corner. This will take place on October 24th from 5 to 8 p.m. Pre-register online at http://www.royrecreation. com or call the Parks and Recreation Department for more information. This is an event I look forward to participating in every year as a great way to connect with our community.
