The Department of Parks and Recreation has been doing some spring-cleaning. Following the winter programming schedule, the department “cleans house” both literally and figuratively. New programs, new classes and new schedules greet us as the Moorestown Schools and other local school systems Spring Break begins on Thursday, March 24.
