activities to beat the doldrums
Your Lincoln Park District has a winter of
indoor fun planned for everyone. We'll give you the information for
December events and promise to introduce you to great activities and
educational programs throughout the months to come. We'll return
with some of your favorites and will be adding new events as well.
A park district membership is a wonderful Christmas gift. Exercise
will lend itself to good health, and that is a priceless gift. We
offer a variety of levels of membership, some including aerobics
classes as well. Cost information is only a phone call away. Reach
us at (217) 732-8770 with your questions.
Our annual Breakfast
With Santa is Saturday. We are pleased to partner with CITV5 and the
Kiwanis to bring this Christmas favorite back to you. While we feed
the youngsters, Mom or Dad confirms what Santa already knows! Then
when your child's turn arrives, stand back and watch the amazement.
We must ask that there be an adult with each party of children. Your
child will be filmed, and this event will air on CITV5. Tickets are
available at $6.50 for adults and $3.50 for children. Breakfast is
served buffet style, featuring a home-cooked menu.
As we try not to succumb to the holiday spread -- that being from
the tabletop to our waistlines -- we offer a new aerobics class.
Jacki Pavlik, who has taught her evening classes with us for a
number of years, offers her trained and motivating skills on Sunday
afternoons starting at 3 p.m. She will be featuring free weights,
body bars, bands and the exercise balls. She guarantees a great
workout with a lot of variety. Jayne Weaver offers her Monday-Friday
morning classes, with Jenny Liesinger and Diane Redpath covering the
remaining weeknights. Call the center for class schedules.
Winter league volleyball sign-up will begin Monday. Roster
information and league costs are available at the front desk. We
have set aside Tuesday evenings to play and have reserved Thursday
evening if needed. This is a really fun league and a great way to
work out with friends.

A big part of Christmas break for many families is finding
something for the kids to do. In response to the "I'm bored; there
is nothing to do," Lincoln Park District comes to your rescue.
The week before Christmas we offer tennis lessons. Brianna
Sheldon comes back to teach Dec. 19-22. She taught with the park
district over the summer, and we promise that your children will
enjoy and learn with her teaching technique. Lessons for
kindergarten through second grade are at 9:30 a.m. We'll even
provide the rackets and balls for these little ones! Third through
fifth grades are scheduled from 10:15 to 11:15. Sixth grade and up
are from 11:15 to 12:15. Costs are $25 for in-district residents or
$30 for those out of the district.
A four-day tumbling camp is scheduled to start Dec. 27. Lauren
Perring, who has taught tumbling at the park district numerous
times, shares her talents with us again. Pre-kindergarten through
second grade will start at 1 p.m. and end at 1:45. Third through
fifth grades will have one-hour classes starting at 1:45. All
instruction is in the aerobics room. Previous students are
encouraged to come back. Lauren will conduct skills assessment with
each student, and instruction will be individualized after that.
