[February 01, 2008]  February promises to be a busy month here at the Lincoln Park District. If you are looking for opportunities for better fitness or some type of educational class, we have some great offerings available. Please remember to preregister as soon as possible so our instructors will have adequate supplies.

Stephen Klemm, owner of Picture This Photography, will be teaching Digital Photography. Classes are 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 make a better photograph from a mediocre one. Following weeks will address the best settings for your camera and computer printer and software. Klemm 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. Classes will be for four weeks, beginning on Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Railer Room. Cost is $50 in district. Everyone is encouraged to bring their cameras.

First Aid for Your Pet. Do you know what to do if your dog or cat has ingested something harmful, has a broken bone or even worse, not breathing? Dr. Phillip Gillen, of Lincoln Animal Hospital will teach this course. Instruction will cover basic first-aid, CPR and when to call the doctor. This class will be from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 16, and the cost is $15. You will not need to bring your pet. All supplies will be furnished.

Lincoln Park District introduces Fit for Seniors. This unique new class is designed just for our senior citizens. The 45-minute session will start with a 10-minute warm-up by walking and stretching your major muscle groups. We will continue with 15 minutes of moderate cardio exercises to gently increase your heart rate. During the remainder of the class we will focus on increasing mobility, flexibility, balance, muscular strength and endurance. Sturdy chairs will be provided for participants wanting to use them for the added sense of balance. Classes will be in the aerobics room on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:45 to 10:30 a.m., beginning Feb. 5. Jacki Pavlik will be our instructor. This class will continue based on participation. There is no charge if you have a circuit membership of full-access membership.

For our seniors looking for a less-structured exercise program, we offer Senior Stride and Social. This is an indoor walking opportunity for the community to use our walking track. It takes a little over seven laps around all four courts to equal a mile. On the first and third Wednesdays of each month, we put on the coffeepot and offer muffins from 7 to 9 a.m. Marcia Cook, community nurse liaison from Christian Homes, is here to check blood pressures also.

A skate park fundraiser breakfast is being planned. Keep Feb. 23 open on your calendars. The menu will include pancakes, sausage patties, biscuits and gravy, mixed fruit, and your beverage. Cost is $7 for adults and $4 for 10 years old and under. Serving time will be from 7 a.m. to noon at the American Legion. Tickets may be purchased from any National Honor Society member or skate enthusiasts at Lincoln Junior High School. Anyone desiring tickets may call the park district at 732-8770.
