Retirement Celebration for Michael Paul


Valley-Wide Recreation and Park District will recognize Michael Paul by naming the gymnasium in the Sports Center at Regional Park after him during a dedication and retirement celebration Friday, July 12.

Paul retired in December after more than 30 years with the district. Most of that time was spent as a recreation supervisor, organizing and coordinating youth sports leagues. He also coached and officiated many games. Thousands of children in the San Jacinto Valley benefited from his efforts.

“We invite anyone touched by the work of Michael Paul to come and say thank you,” Valley-Wide General Manager Dean Wetter said.
The event begins at 6 p.m. outside the Sports Center, 901 W. Esplanade Ave., San Jacinto. There is no charge to attend, but RSVPs are requested to [email protected] or by calling 951-654-1505.
