Summer playground activites to start

The Whitehall Parks and Recreation Department's eight-week, summer playground program for children entering grades K-5 will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays through Aug. 16 at the LaCorte Amphithteater, 4680 Langley Ave. in John Bishop Park.

The program also will host the summer lunch program for any youth, age 18 and younger. Free lunches will be served from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. weekdays at the amphitheater through Aug. 2. After Aug. 2, Whitehall City Schools will host the lunch program.

College-age playground leaders will organize arts and crafts, sports and games and special events for children; however, this free drop-in program is not a child care facility.
