Adapted Recreation Services Newsletter

94 Matthew Drive  Fairport, NY 14450 (585) 520 - 7555 
Date: December 2012
Update: Hi everyone, I hope all is well. ARS has been quite busy with completing the not for profit process, developing fitness opportunities, and looking to expand ARS’s personnel.

ARS has formed its corporation and is in the process to become a not-for-profit. I would like to welcome our new board members Randi Rhinehart as my vice president, Barb Jackson at Secretary, and Jenni Tuller as Treasure. I am very excited about this direction that ARS is heading and look forward this next year. The board and ARS’s mission is still the same and that is to support recreational opportunities for people with disabilities through the development of a comprehensive resource list that will allow you to have access to current resources, information, and wonderful opportunities in the community.

ARS has been thinking of a way to improve the registration process and decrease the paperwork for our participants. Please read the registration process carefully and if you have any questions please contact ARS.

Registration Process:

**** Please read as changes apply******

Registration process for Adapted Recreation Services is the following:
