Letter: Tips on how not to miss county activities guides

May 13, 2012

This letter is in response to Brenda Kaufman's May 3 letter, "Parks brochures are no good if residents don't see them."

We are glad she enjoys Howard County's three seasonal recreational and activity guides. (We also produce a summer camp guide.)

This past year, activity and recreational guides were distributed by inserting them into the local papers. Beginning with the August 2012 guide, residents can again look for the publications in their mailboxes. To find out when your Guide will be mailed, check our website (www.howardcountymd.gov/rap ) closer to August and look for the reminder postcard being mailed to you this summer.

On behalf of the Howard County Recreation and Parks Department, I would like to sincerely apologize to Ms. Kaufman. It is our policy to respond to emails within 48 hours, and that did not happen in this case. This oversight occurred as the department has recently been reviewing distribution options for the guide and the decision to mail the guide to residents was finalized on April 30.
