CULLMAN — Recently, John Hunt, director of the Cullman City Parks and Recreation Department, was guest speaker at the Cullman Lions Club. He showed the 10-minute film clip that he would be showing at his presentation before the National Association selection committee to select the best park and recreation department in the United States based upon its population category. The film clip is professionally produced and really tells the story of the current parks and rec.'s program to reach the needs of all in the Cullman community. This is the third straight year that Cullman has been selected as the best park and recreation department in its category in the state of Alabama and is also to be considered for the title of best parks and recreation department in the United States. The Cullman Lions have been active in supporting the Cullman Parks and Recreation Department. The club donated the seed funds to start Heritage Park in the mid 1980s and has continued its support ever since.
