Friday, June 10, 2011
Comprehensive Program Partners D.C. Agencies, Businesses and Non-Profit Organizations to Provide Safe, Wholesome and Healthful Summer Fun for All Ages

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Summer vacation is just around the corner for thousands of DC youth, and Mayor Vincent C. Gray today launched a comprehensive program, "One City Summer Fun...Something for Everyone," to provide safe, wholesome, fun activities for the summer. The program is a major initiative of his safe communities agenda.

"This summer, our residents will have a full spectrum of stimulating activities, events and programs," Mayor Gray said. "They can engage in fun, athletics, creativity, reading, learning, exploration, healthy living, volunteerism, and employment opportunities."

"One City Summer Fun … Something for Everyone" is a wide-ranging and expanded citywide partnership among District government agencies, community and faith-based organizations and private-sector groups.

An integrated approach to a safe and creative summer season, this initiative provides something of interest for everyone in every ward across the city. The work in pulling together this program is the outcome and product of an extensive interaction between more than 30 District government agencies. The program was coordinated by the One City Summer Fun Task Force, led by Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice Paul Quander and Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Beatriz "BB" Otero.
