Page Four N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, July 18, 2013 PHIPPS Concluded from p. 1 kids! The idea of a commu- nity recreation center is not new to the town of Norwalk. When I was younger, my grandma and grandpa would frequently take me to the old center down from the bank. It was small, just big enough to hold a few games and some pool tables, but what fun we had! Outings there are some of my fondest memories as a child. But once it closed, all the younger kids no longer had the option of going to the center. This is why I would like to raise money; I want the children of Norwalk to have a nice, safe and fun place to go to stay physically active. However, I have a bigger dream this time around. I can visualize a full com- munity recreation center where young and old alike have a place to meet for classes, games and com- munity. When I first started to plan the project, I came across some old plans that the city had drawn up on what the center could look like. While looking at the plans all I could think of is how much I would have enjoyed growing up with a place to go like what was planned, but never came to fruition. As a senior in high school, I now have the ability to make a dif- ference and use my voice to persuade the people of Norwalk of what can be. We have an amazing com- munity made up of incred- ible people. I know what we can achieve if we work together, a fantastic recre- ation center that everyone can utilize. So, please come out to the Norwalk Pool Wednesda3 Aug. 14, enjoy a great meal and swim, donate whatever you are Comfortable with and help me help the community grow closer together.
