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!

"I'm on a Wait List for a program. What does that
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.
