Recreation Supervisor Kevin Day is retiring after 32 years of service to the community of Idaho Falls and is holding an open house Friday, Feb. 24 to celebrate. The open house will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Skyline Activity Center in Idaho Falls.

Day started working for the city of Idaho Falls in 1985 in the Sports Programming Division. The division manages and is responsible for 200 children and adult sports programs as well as 150 seasonal employees.

Day was a great softball player in his time, playing on many USA registered softball teams but spending most of his softball career with the Men’s Major Fast-pitch Division in the Salt Lake City area.

Day was awarded the Red Halpern Lifetime Achievement Award by USA Softball of Idaho for serving as District 7 commissioner for more than 28 years.

“Kevin is the most humble district commissioner I have ever worked with,” said Bill Parks, USA Softball State Commissioner at the award banquet. “He is quiet and speaks little, but when he does comment, he is full of wisdom. We will miss his presence.”
