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 Angelica Rugege, Co-Chair, Lydia Guy, Co-Chair Ann Adderley, Patricia Bantom, Sylvia Carr, Shawnette Chamberlain, Viola Curry, Tia Gray, Jackie Haltie, Julia Hill, Frances Johnson, Victoria Johnson, Regina Meacham-Devero, Joanne Nichols, Constance Keaton, and Cynthia Weaver.

The Goal of the Recreation Committee this year is to continue to expand on our prior successful programs. We will be hosting a Jump-A-Thon and other physical activities in support of the Kids Heart Challenge at Steele Elementary School. The children will have the opportunity get active and learn the importance of heart-healthy habits, all while raising money for the American Heart Association.
