In June, municipalities and community organizations promote the physical, social and environmental benefits of indoor and outdoor recreation and their various programs and activities. This year?s theme is ‘Community thrives here,’ focusing on the following weekly themes: Movement, Trailblazers, Guardians, and Connection.
