Winter/Spring 2014
It’s hard to believe we’re bidding farewell to another year. We’ve had a grand time this past season providing events and programs. Our success is attributed not only to the programs, classes, fitness center, and special events, but also to our residents and participants. We couldn’t do it without you!

October was a busy time for us. We had yet another grand Autumn Colors Craft Show that month. This event draws in 100 vendors with all sorts of merchandise. Items such as crafts, candles, clothing, jewelry, household décor, toys, artwork, etc.,
was available to purchase. You name it, we probably had it. What a great way for all to get a jump on their holiday shopping!

One of our biggest events is our annual Halloween Fest, which was also held in October. Aside from trick-or-treating for candy, there were crafts, entertainers, moon jumps, costume contests, and more! This spine-tingling evening is one of our most
attended events. We love putting this together!

We hope that you and your family ended 2013 with good tidings. Our Annual Winter Wonderland event in December was also a great success and helped us end the year with good cheer. This event was put on in conjunction with Fat Ricky’s and we thank them for their generous support and participation. Winter Wonderland was also coupled with the Tree Lighting Ceremony and the Parade of Lights. Not only were children able to enjoy these events, but there were also entertainers, carolers, inflatables, a book fair, and an opportunity to make some holiday crafts. Most exciting, however, was a visit from good ol’ St. Nick. Children were able to get a photo with Santa to take home as a souvenir.

As you may have read, we have installed a Thor-Guard System, which detects the potential for lightning in the area. This system has been placed at Village Park, Volunteer Park, Wesglen Park and Century Park, and will notify participants on the playing field of the threat of lightning. If such a threat occurs, a 15-second outdoor horn will blast to warn those outdoors to seek shelter immediately. A strobe light will also begin flashing inside the Recreation Center near the reception area, as well as on the sensor-poles at the park locations listed above. When danger of lightning no longer exists, an outdoor horn will blast three times for five-seconds and the inside strobe light will cease. These measures have been taken to protect those on the playing fields during inclement weather.

Our renovation of Village Park is anticipated to be completed by early spring. The improvements under way have provided new playground equipment, pour-in-place rubber surfacing, concrete repairs, extension of the trail to the Recreation Center, new bleachers, signage and additional landscaping. This is sure to become another hot-spot for you and your children.

As we bid farewell to another year, we welcome the opportunity to provide you with plenty of activities and programs for 2014. And don’t forget, if your little one has a birthday coming up, check out our Jungle Gym, Party Chefs, Gymnastics, Dance, and
Sports-n-Games party packages. Hope to see you soon!
