A Message From Director Jane Shelhorse
As adorable as our little Gabby is on our front cover, I hope you also noticed our brand new, fun, colorful logo. Along with our logo change, comes a name change. We are now officially Louisa County Parks, Recreation & Tourism!! We are excited about our new logo, new name, and all the new things that comes with adding Tourism to our department.
Hard to believe that summer vacation is over and school is back in session...but the fun certainly is not! In September the aquatic facility “goes to the dogs” at the 6th Annual Pooch Plunge. In October we have our Annual Fall Harvest Festival, and of course, in December we host many family friendly holiday events. But, we are also adding some new events this fall as well. How about a Haunted Forest to add a little scare factor to your Halloween? Check out Fun For The Family. How about a Quarters Auction? Never heard of that? Find the details under Special Interest.
Another activity we have added sounds a little different, but is sure is lots of fun. Pickleball. This fast-paced cross between tennis and racquetball is great for anyone over 40. We play it inside so even as the weather turns colder, we can continue. If you’ve never played before, come to a clinic (it’s only $2!) and find out what this new and exciting game is all about.
Pickleball is a great way for people to be active, and at LCPRT, we want everyone to be more active. That is why we are part of the Move2Health Campaign, an initiative sponsored by the Jefferson Area Health Department. It encourages people of all ages, shapes, and sizes to move more. Our slogan “Walk, Bike, Dance, Play. 30 Minutes every day!” says it all. Together as a group, we hope to log in over one million minutes of activity before the end of the year. Won’t you join us? For more information on how you can get involved, go to our Move2Health section.
These are just some of the new programs we are bringing to you this fall. Browse our website to find some more new activities, like pasta making, woodcarving, Little Explorers Club, and baton twirling, along with the long-time favorites like our New York shopping trip, basketball and cheerleading, Zumba, and yoga.
We hope you will enjoy the offerings we have this time and we hope it will give you all kinds of ideas on how to “Play Local”! We are proud of what we are able to offer to our citizens and we hope our actions and dedication allows you to be proud of us!
