About Us


Hi all, We are a strong community and we will stick together to help each other through this difficult time. The health and safety of our family of instructors & participants remain uppermost in our hearts and minds as we navigate through these uncharted waters. We appreciate your patience, understanding & most of all your continued support in these unprecedented times. We continue to postpone all PTARC activities & look forward to picking up where we left off with all scheduled programming as soon as we get the all clear.

Thank you for checking in with us, & may you and yours stay safe & healthy.

Recreation Director
