The purpose of this grant is to increase wellness and recreation opportunities for youth and seniors in each community in Bertie County by leveraging the recreational assets at eight pubic school facilities. Currently, there is only one central location to host recreation programs in the county. The Bertie County Parks and Recreation Dept. will partner with Bertie County Schools to use the identified facilities during after-school hours, on weekends, and during the summer for recreational and senior programs. Using the identified schools in each community will help Bertie County’s dispersed communities overcome the barriers of isolation and limited countywide programming.
