(Hiram Harris, Oct. 11, 2015)

On behalf of the Charter Township of Royal Oak Parks & Recreation Department. I am sending this message as an official request for financial donations in support of the Recreation Center’s Rehabilitation Project. The Recreation Center currently delivers quality after school, community and summer programs to more than 500 children and 700 adults annually. Programs include, summer day camp, little leagues, computer lab, summer meals, swimming, arts & crafts, family fun days, senior citizen picnic, classic car show, Martin Luther King Jr. ctechadCelebration, community garden, substance abuse counseling, training, sign language classes and health & wellness seminars.
It has been over 50 years since federal or state grant funds have been received to enhance the Recreation Facilities provided at the Charter Township of Royal Oak Recreation Center. We need help to raise funding to rehabilitate the Recreation Center. The renovations will include roof repairs, installation or replacement of windows, doors, lighting, and heating and cooling system updates. The funding will also allow the center to be made, handicap accessible, enrich the health & wellness center, and install a concrete swimming pool deck, gym floor updates, kitchen upgrades, and other renovations as deemed necessary. It is our intention to provide a quality community center to the growing community who use the center on a regular basis. Please join us as we continue to make a positive difference in the life of our children and their seed8989_Mary Schusterbaurerfamilies.
If you have any additional questions or concerns please submit them by email to or US Mail to Charter Township of Royal Oak Recreation Center; 21272 Mendota, Ferndale, MI 48220. Attn: Hiram Harris/ Director. Phone (248) 979-2212.  Your support of the Charter Township of Royal Oak Parks & Recreation Center Rehabilitation Project will be greatly appreciated… Respectfully, Hiram Harris
