The history behind this memorial Event stems from Marlene Watt who was an advocate for the youth in our community by serving as the secretary at Carlin Elementary School and frequently giving of her own resources to families in need.
All proceeds from the Marlene Watt Memorial Event will go towards the Ravenna Parks and Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund. Since the inception of the Ravenna Parks and Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund many children have been able to attend camp, sports and other great activities who could not have otherwise afforded to do so. The importance of youth recreation can’t be over stated. Recreational activities help develop decision-making skills, cooperative behaviors, positive relationships and empowerment. They learn to act fairly, plan proactively, and develop a moral code of behavior. This play also helps enhance their cognitive and motor skills. Participants tend to be more active, accepting, calm, resourceful, attentive and cooperative. Recreation also provides children the chance to learn, consolidate, and practice the skills necessary for life.
Thank you for investing in the youth of our communities
