Lincoln Park District now offers a licensed
massage therapist. We welcome Marti Porter to our staff and
encourage you to book an appointment with her. Using a professional
masseuse provides many benefits to your general health. Mrs. Porter
will take the time to discuss your massage options. Two of her
offerings include a relaxation massage or a Swedish massage. The
relaxation massage is more about the gentle massaging of your body.
The Swedish is a light to medium pressure that manipulates your soft
tissues and muscles for overall release of tension and stress. She
also offers a sports massage that works on sports-related soreness
and injuries. This technique will return your muscle mass to its
ability to develop at its maximum potential. A sports massage even
helps prevent sprains and strains during your workouts. Several
different appointment choices are available to meet your schedule.
You may call 217-737-9091 to schedule your personally tailored trip
to total peace and balance.
Fall volleyball team registration will be starting very soon. The
information will be available at the front desk beginning Saturday.
Teams will have until Sept. 17 to return their rosters and fees. The
season is scheduled to begin Oct. 3 and will continue on Tuesday
evenings. Sunday evenings will be set aside for team practices.
Practice times may be scheduled with Christine at 732-8770.
park district is offering a brand-new class this fall. It is called
"Men in the Kitchen." This class will focus on the senior men who
have limited cooking skills. Everyday recipes for beef, pork and
chicken will be included. This is a low-key, hands-on class with
several menu ideas as well. We will feature an easy and fun approach
to getting a meal on the table. Roy Logan will be the instructor,
and classes will be on Thursday afternoons at the park district
kitchen, beginning at 1 p.m. Class will start on Sept. 7 and run for
four weeks. The cost is $35 with all materials provided. Class size
will be restricted to allow everyone to share the experience.
Participants should bring an appetite. Sorry, ladies; men only!

Sept. 9 is the second annual bike
tour. Enjoy either of our routes and join us back at the park
district for lunch. Our longest route will take us to Elkhart via
Logan County's blacktop roads. Horsefeathers will host our rest
stop, where light refreshments will be provided. The second stop is
straight up our very own Mother Road, historic Route 66, with a
stopover at the Pig Hip Museum. Ernie and Francis Edwards will be
our hosts. After catching your breath, pedal on to Lincoln with an
opportunity to stop and see Postville Courthouse. Your registration
includes lunch. This noncompetitive ride is designed for families
too. Cost is $10 per person or $30 per family.
