Do your New Year's Resolutions include exercising more?  Why not start a walking regimen at Kantor Park?  With the completion of the walkway around the grass field; if you do a "figure 8" around the park, you will have walked 1/2 mile.  Why don't you start a challenge for yourself?  Start off with a 1/2 mile, and then try to add laps as we travel through the winter!  Anyone with a success story--please be sure to share it with us!

NEW SCHEDULE POSTED FOR WINTER
 ***** 
 
 "I'm on a Wait List for a program.  What does that mean?"
Some of our programs have a maximum # of participants that can be registered for any number of reasons such as physical space limitations, established ratios between our instructors and participants, equipment/material available, etc.  
If you have added your name to a wait list (always at no charge), you will be contacted only if space becomes available.  If you are still interested in the program; your registration on the wait list will move over to the intended program, and you will be asked to go in and apply payment to secure your spot in the program. If you are no longer interested, we will just remove your name from the wait list and continue on down the list.  
Want to get email reminders about upcoming events in Recreation?  Make sure to sign up for Recreation "e-News" on the front page of the township website--blue envelope icon on right.
