The deadline for most of our activities is on a Friday!!

You will notice something about our entry deadlines; most of the time they are on Friday. We are doing this in an effort to promote deadlines more efficiently, prevent late registrations, and to develop successful programs.

Most dates and times are set, but this schedule is tentative and can change. If there are changes to  programs offered by the Russell Recreation Commission we will try to post them on here, on our Facebook page or on the KRSL website.
