From Roy Logan, program coordinator

[JAN. 25, 2007]  Lincoln Park District is cooking up some fun, and we mean that quite literally. It's a program just for the guys, and we will feature everyday cooking skills. This four-week course will meet on Monday evenings from 7 to 9 in the kitchen at the Rec Center. Jan. 29, lesson one will be about making soups. Week two will involve dishes from Mexico, Italy and Ireland. Week three will feature entrees that are out of the box. Week four will be the class members' choice. Cost for the Men In The Kitchen series is $35. Roy Logan, a veteran of the restaurant industry, will be the instructor. We encourage you to preregister because class size will be limited.

Did you get a digital camera for Christmas, or have you had one for a while and still have questions? Stephen Klemm, owner of Picture This Photography, will be our instructor. This course is four weeks and will be on Thursday evenings at 7, beginning Feb. 1. Class is designed for the beginner to the intermediate, or anyone interested in using your digital camera to the fullest of its ability. The digital camera class will open with how to take better photographs. Following weeks will address the best settings for your camera, computer printer and software. Stephen will also cover making calendars, cards and fun, whimsical projects. Week four will culminate with the high tech of special effects, e-mail and slide shows. Each class is approximately 1 hours or more, and everyone should bring their camera. Cost is $50 in district and $62.50 out of district.

We welcome Jon Leisinger back to our tennis courts. Jon was our tennis instructor this past summer. His four-week session starts on Feb. 4. We'll begin with kindergarten through second grade at 1-1:45 p.m., then third through fifth from 2 to 3 p.m., and sixth grade and up at 3-4 p.m. From the beginners to the more advanced Jon enjoys working with young people. We will provide the tennis balls, and participants will need to wear tennis shoes and bring their rackets. Cost is $30 in district and $37.50 out of district.

ALMH, Logan County Health Department, CITV5 and Lincoln Park District have partnered to launch Staying Alive, a 12-month health and wellness challenge for people of all ages with all kinds of health goals.

Teams consist of four to six individuals who live together, work together or just enjoy spending time with each other. Interested teams can pick up a registration and points packets at the ALMH information desk, Logan County Health Department or Lincoln Park District. Completed registration packets and a $20 entry fee and $5 per team member are accepted only at the Lincoln Park District. Interested individuals without a team may join for $10. You do not have to join the park district to participate in the challenge, but those who do will receive a 10 percent discount on their memberships.

Teams may also register at the Staying Alive kickoff party at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 25, at the Lincoln Park District. Join us on the second Monday of each month as we gather to chart our progress and find out what will be that month's focus on health. Prizes and incentives will be awarded throughout the year to the winning teams.
