Fun continues in the fall
Labor Day is just a few days away and summer is coming to an end. Our seasonal staff has returned to the classroom and Bender Pool replaces Noelridge Aquatic Center for swimming in less than a week. While summer never feels long enough, we hope that you packed in plenty of time in the sun and at the pool.
As we turn towards fall, we want to remind you that time for family and fun continues. Parks exist for your pleasure year-round, but are often even more enjoyable as temperatures cool. We encourage you to use the trails often in the next few months and watch for the beauty our prairies and trees will provide in September and October.
With school in session, turn your attention to planning great recreation opportunities for your kids after school and on weekends. Take your choice of basketball, football, soccer, tennis, volleyball and introduction to sports programs to keep your kids as active as they were during the summer. Parents of preschoolers who are looking for socialization opportunities while their older kids are away during the day, may consider Blastball, Little Sports Torts, Preschool Playtime, It’s A Mess!, Movers and Shakers, Play, Music and Fun and Little Adventures at Ushers Ferry.
If your summer was jam-packed and you didn’t get swimming lessons in, get them done before the outdoor pools open again. Bender Pool provides a warm environment with Learn to Swim classes for ages six months and up. It is also a great place for fitness with lap swim and water exercise opportunities.
We want to keep you moving and healthy with Jazzercise®, Karate, Kyudo Renmei, Pound®, Yoga, Barnyard Yoga and Zumba. Try something new and get immersed in drawing, painting, guitar or belly dance. Then, mark your calendar to make sure you set aside time with your family for Family Quidditch Day, Harvest Fest, Fall Family Fest, Safe Halloween and hayrack rides at Ushers Ferry. Find all the details in our fall Play! Guide at crrec.org or on our Facebook page.
Thank you for your patronage this summer. We hope that you’re left with many fond memories. Don’t be a stranger, we would love to see you many times before spring.
