HK Rec: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Activities & More!

Haddam Killingworth Recreation relies on 80% user fees to operate. We are supported by a little over 20% from both towns of Haddam and Killingworth combined (13% from Haddam, and 9% from Killingworth). With this pandemic, our program participation is not what it usually is. And with the uncertainty of winter indoor programs (we have not been approved to hold programs in the schools besides childcare), we are looking for creative ways to bring in revenue. We need all the support we can get. Please consider registering and we thank you for your support!
