HEER – Recreation

The Mission of the RECREATION Committee of the Metropolitan Philadelphia Area Chapter of the Continental Societies, Incorporated in keeping with our National Initiatives of Obesity Prevention, Asthma Awareness, and Oral Health, is to provide programs and activities, which foster improved physical health, social skills, and increased motivation in children and youth.

Our members include: Shawnette Chamberlain, Co-Chair, Jacqueline Haltie, Co-Chair, Camelia Bowles, Sylvia Carr, Lydia Guy, Tawnya Gee, Frances Johnson, Connie Keaton, Joanne Nichols, and Cynthia Weaver.

The Goal of the Recreation Committee this year is to continue to expand our
prior successful programs. As first place winners of the HEER AWARD at the
2016 National Conclave, we will be returning for a second year to Overbrook Education Center to serve the Vision Impaired and Life Skills population in grades K – 8. We will host our MPAC Shining Stars Event. The event will consist of four rotations of recreational activities, healthy snacks, and will end with an Awards ceremony for all participants.
