Ready to "Get Your Play On," Anthem?

Date Modified: Tue, 07/18/2017 - 8:33am

July is National Park and Rec Month, and we want to see how Anthem residents enjoy all the spectacular amenities in our community. The National Recreation and Park Association is kicking off a campaign during July called “Get Your Play On.” You may remember our Park & Rec Superheroes campaign from last year, and we want you to get involved again this year. Did we mention there will be prizes?

Show us how you “Get Your Play On.” Post a picture or video of you and your friends and/or family enjoying recreational activities, sports, etc. A stroll through the park with your (leashed) furry friends, fun on the playground, cooling down at the pool or splash pads, or being involved in a sports team at the fields are all great ideas.

Too hot outside during the day? That’s ok, head over to the Community Center for a pick-up basketball game, fun on the Rock Wall or even your daily workout routine. Be sure to use the hashtags #PlayOnJuly and #AnthemAZ in your posts and either tag the ACC or make the post public so we can find it. We will randomly draw a winner from the submissions every Monday, beginning July 10. Prizes will be awarded. Be sure you tag Anthem Community Council on your post, and that the post is public.

The winner of the first drawing, a $50 gift card from Walmart, was Krystal A. The next prize is a $50 gift card from Safeway.

Stop by the Civic Building or Community Center for a calendar of ACC parks and rec programs taking place during the month of July.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram and post your submissions there. Come on, Anthem – we want to see how you ‘get your play on.’
