Letter to the editor: Parks praise

To the editor:

I enjoyed the article on the history of the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department. I grew up in Lawrence during the 1960s and 1970s. The summer playground program at Schwegler Elementary was a godsend for a kid in a household with two working parents. It was my day care. The program took us to the public pool every week, and the Bookmobile from the library visited as well. The 75-year anniversary celebrates another example of what makes this community great.
