Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department would like to thank everyone who participated in yesterday’s Spring into Health Fair. The exhibitors and visitors made the event a success. We hope you had as much fun as we did and maybe learned something new, too. If you were not able to make it, don’t worry. The success of the event prompted us to host another in the future. So, stay tuned.
Walk it out. Need a boost of energy? Do you often find yourself in that afternoon slump? Would you rather exercise at a more convenient time than early in the morning or late in the day? If any of these things describe you, come join us and other workers for a lunchtime power walk at the Burt-Cobb Community Center. Walkers meet on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays at 11a.m. to get in a brisk, heart stimulating walk in before the afternoon slump can take over.
The Morning Walkers Program still takes place every weekday morning at 7a.m. The program is open to everyone age 50+ with a community center I.D. An annual I.D. can be purchased at the center for $5.
Softball. The Parks and Recreation Softball League has seen a record turn out this season. The adult league began practicing last week. Final fees for adult softball teams are due tomorrow by 4:30p.m. at the Parks and Recreation Office (102 Public Square). If final fees are not paid, the team will be dropped from the league. No late fees can be accepted.
Youth Softball League registration is still open until April 10th. The cost is $30 per child.
Both the Women’s League and Tuesday Youth Church Leagues are able to enroll until May 1st when the final fee of $100 is due.
Artist Series. The Parks and Recreation Department is excited to offer a new series of art seminars through our community centers this spring. The Artist Series will include some of Clarksville’s most celebrated artists and their creative format.
The first artist in the series is Debbie Sprake who will be holding a seminar at the Crow Community Center Saturday, March 28th from 12-2p.m. The seminar will highlight the art of painting Metal Ornaments. The class combines metal flashing, wire work and Decoupage techniques of painting. The seminar is $18 per student. There is also a list of simple household items that are needed to complete the project. Pre-registration is required to take the class, as well as the $5 annual community center I.D.
