This is our first summer to offer a cheerleading camp, and we
welcome veteran instructor Megan Farmer. This class will cover all
the basic skills needed for tryouts for future cheerleaders. Megan
will teach motions, jumps, floor and sideline cheers. Basic tumbling
and stunts will be covered as well. This is for young people
entering fourth through sixth grades.
Classes start June 5 from 1 to 3 p.m. and run every day through
Friday. Cost is $60 in district for the weeklong camp. Based on
preregistration, Megan will offer a second session during the same
week if necessary.
Jon Leisinger comes on board as our tennis instructor. Jon has
had a great winning season with the LCHS tennis team. He will offer
instruction from ages 4 through high school. Peewee, for ages 4-7,
begins at 8 a.m. with racquets being provided. Beginners are third
through fifth grades, and class time starts at 8:45 for one hour.
Sixth through eighth grades begin at 9:45. Older students will be on
the courts at 10:45.
Instruction is every day for a week, beginning June 5, and cost
is $30 in district, with balls being provided for all age divisions.
Boys or girls, young or old, we'll teach you how to reel in the
big fish at two free events! Herb Drier from the Department
of Natural Resources will lead the fishing clinic on June 6 from
6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Railer Room. Learn to identify fish species,
how to tie your hook on the line and what is the best bait to use.
Who knows, Herb may even have a fish or two for you to pet!

After you've learned the basics, we'll let you try your skill at the
annual Fishing Derby. The Lincoln City Police D.A.R.E. program will
sponsor the event at Hickory Lane Campground on June 10 from 9 a.m.
to noon. The wiener wagon will be on hand to offer hot dogs and
sodas to the participants, and prizes are awarded too. Parental
approval is a must and parents are encouraged to attend.
Tee ball registration is going on now. Play is scheduled to be on
Monday and Wednesday morning or Tuesday and Thursday morning. A
Saturday morning league is planned for working parents with schedule
conflicts. Our home-run hitters are entering kindergarten through
second grade. We'll play on the park district's Breezy Field.
Players should wear tennis shoes and bring their own gloves, and we
will provide T-shirts and caps. Contact the park district at
732-8770 for more detailed information.
Ballroom dance lessons are just in time for those summer weddings
and class reunions. This fun four-week session will include the very
popular swing dance, a nightclub two- step and, of course, the
cha-cha. Mike and Julie Bieser are our instructors. We will be in
the ballroom on Monday evenings from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Comfortable
clothes and slick-soled shoes are recommended. Cost is $50 per
couple for the entire session.
