“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn”. – Hal Borland
As I am writing this in January, we’ve enjoyed a mild, dry winter so far. I don’t know what weather we may be talking about when you get this Activity Guide (“Wow, when will the rain stop.” Or “Will it ever rain?”), I do know that spring will emerge and summer will call on us soon. The quote above notes that inevitability. No matter what the season or weather, that brings me to the second quote: “People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.” - Anton Chekhov We are pleased to put this Activity Guide into your hands, it’s our attempt to keep you happy. Increasingly, researchers in a variety of fields recognize the link between parks and recreation programs and health benefits. Fun, safe, physical activity can control your weight, fortify the immune system, elevate your mood, and increase life expectancy, and the main side effect is that you may like it! We are fortunate to live in a beautiful area and getting out may be obvious to our residents. What may not be as obvious, is that participation in recreation and leisure programs reduces stress, improves personal growth, strengthens community involvement. Over the past few months, I observed families and friends come to the Paradise Ice Rink. This recreation opportunity provided a safe, wholesome place for kids to socialize and exercise, while adults could try the ice or chat, take pictures, and sip hot chocolate. While we will need donations and sponsors to keep the “Ice in Paradise”, the program provides a clear window into how recreation strengthens our local community with economic activity and opportunity for people to socialize. In this Activity Guide, we have other examples too, and you should give them a try! In the next few months, we will be adding new classes and opportunities for learning, playing, and socializing. We also need your help on classes and programs that you feel will benefit you and our community. Your local Recreation and Park District needs to hear from you. In the meantime, get out and stay healthy and happy. - Dan Efseaff, District Manager
