This is a highly contagious disease that is spread by contact with infected dogs.
Area veterinarians recommend that pet owners avoid dog parks until this epidemic subsides.

Lee Williams, Facility Manager for Decatur Active Living, was presented the Thomas O. Davis Award last night at the June Decatur Business Association Meeting. Lee has worked for the City of Decatur since 2000 and always goes above and beyond to serve the community. He has taught many children how to ride bikes safely, managed sports camps and adult programming and has been an active participant in the Safe Routes to School program. Lee also serves as a great mentor to teens and young men in the community.
Decatur’s Thomas O. Davis Award honors a public employee who has helped strengthen the bond between government and the community, served as a role model for others in public service, contributed to the well-being of the community, inspired others to get involved in public service, and served the public with respect. The award is named for Decatur’s long-time city attorney.
We are very proud of Lee and feel lucky to have the opportunity to work with him!

Tackling the urban jungle can be fun while also providing you fitness. Use the city landscape as your outdoor gym for a toning circuit walk.
Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. Listen to your body. If you begin to feel overheated, slow down the pace and drink more water. Or come on over the Dectur Recreation Center and try this walk on our indoor walking track. Treat each lap as a city block and get moving!

Join members of the Pedestrian Advisory Committee for the monthly Bright at Night Walk to be held this Thursday, June 25 at 7:30 pm. This month’s walk will take you through Agnes Scott College, the Wylde Center and back through the MAK neighborhood.
Meet in front of the Decatur Recreation Center and be sure to bring a water bottle. We will provide a special light for you to use when you walk at night. If it is raining, the walk will be on the indoor walking track.
If you need to drive over, parking is available behind the Library (we share the deck) and the DeKalb County parking deck is also free after 6 pm. It is located a short walk away at the corner of Commerce and Trinity Place. There is plenty of bike parking in front of the Recreation Center.

Hope to see you on Sunday!

Join Decatur Active Living for the Third Friday Fun Bike Ride on Friday, June 19 at 6:30 pm. We will meet in front of the Decatur Recreation Center and ride an easy 5-6 miles around scenic neighborhoods. All levels of riders are welcome and no one will be left behind. After the ride, we will visit a Decatur watering hole for refreshments. Parking is available behind the Decatur Library, adjacent to the Recreation Center.
Bring a water bottle. Helmets are required.
There is a bike repair station in front of the Recreation Center, so come early and make some small adjustments and/or fill the tires with some air.
No ride if raining. Check back here if in doubt.
