30 Days of DPR

Interim Director Delano Hunter is embarking on a social media tour highlighting  everything that DPR has to offer!

From January 1st through January 31st, the 30 Days of DPR campaign will bring Interim Director Hunter to all 63 agency-controlled recreation centers throughout the District.

A production crew will follow him to each site to capture content as he engages with residents, drops in on fun acitivities and programs, and shows the audience why DPR is “where fun happens.”

“30 Days of DPR is a great way for the agency to tell its story and for me to reach out to the people behind the story and around the story,” said Interim Director Hunter. “January is the perfect time to connect with residents looking to try new things in the new year, we will give the District a taste of what DPR has to offer its neighbors.”

This tour will showcase the new interim director doing everything from boxing at Bald Eagle, fencing at Chevy Chase, sewing at Southeast Tennis and Learning Center, to fitness boot camp at Banneker Recreation Center.

The 30 Days of DPR production team will will package this content for release on social media and broadcast the best parts live via Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
