Registrations for a calligraphy class
are being accepted at Lincoln Park District. This elegant art of
handwriting is being taught by Harry Tibbs. Harry is a retired
graphic artist and an accomplished calligrapher. This four-session
class, one hour each week, will begin Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m.
You'll finish just in time to be able to produce your own
beautifully scripted holiday envelopes. This is an art that may be
used many times throughout the year. Preregistration is strongly
recommended so that ample supplies will be available. An
introductory calligraphy pen and paper will be provided.
Through a very generous donation from Kroger's we are offering a
pumpkin carving program. This will be hosted on Saturday, Oct.
24, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Craft Room. The program is for third-
through fifth-graders and parental involvement is encouraged.
Carving kits and templates will be provided. A snack will be
furnished too. Participants are advised to wear suitable clothing
since this is a messy event. Please call the park district at
732-8770 to preregister since class size will be limited. Carvers
will be able to take their pumpkins home with them that day.
In order to offer this class at the most inexpensive price
possible, I need pumpkin growers to donate a total of 25
pumpkins suitable for jack-o'-lanterns. Even if you have only a
few you could donate, your gift along with those from other growers
would yield us enough. Any extra donations could be used to decorate
for Halloween FunFest. We would accept your donations anytime from
Oct. 19 on. If you would need us to come to your home to pick them
up, we are willing to do that. Call 732-8770 and ask for Roy or
Christine to make arrangements.

We have been so pleased with the response to our
membership incentive during September that we are extending it
through October. So "Fall into Fitness" with us. If you join the
Sports Center anytime before Oct. 31, you can earn extra membership
time for free. If you join for three months, we'll add an extra
week. If you join for one year, we'll add an extra month. Nonmembers
as well as current members can take advantage of this special offer.
For example, if your membership doesn't expire until Nov. 30, just
renew and we'll add the extra time to the end of that.
