Splash pad, lake activities, volunteerism continue to enthrall

Is there a saying that says, “keep doing what you enjoy?” asks Senior Program Manager Ali Brown in Shakopee. “If not, there should be.”

The Shakopee Lions Park Splash Pad is a favorite spot around town for ProAct participants and staff. They were able to play in the water safely without getting completely soaked, well the participants anyway, she said.

Twice monthly lake adventures in high demand

As ProAct reported in July, another very popular outing is either fishing or a pontoon ride with Let’s Go Fishing. A trip to Cedar Lake Farm is always welcomed. “Those who do not like to fish they can just enjoy the ride,” said Brown.

Most groups enjoy a picnic lunch at the shelter, where they talk about who caught the biggest fish or throwing staff overboard (smiles). “The only downfall is we can sign up for just two sessions each month. We wish we could go each week!”

It is a popular volunteer activity and feels good for the soul, explains Brown. This past month Shakopee sent two groups to apply labels to the packages and they had a ball, said Brown.

They had more time slots in August, as word got around that it was tons of fun so many others want to participate!
