Statement of Inclusion

Definition of a resident Residents are people who live within the City of O’Fallon’s corporate limits.

O’Fallon Community and Jazz Band Concert season The O’Fallon Community Concert Band is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year! Come on out and help celebrate!

O’Fallon Jammin’

Noon on Sunday, August 12 O’Fallon Municipal Centre (City Hall) auditorium Production dates: November 30 – December 2, and December 7 – 9. The production calls for six women ages 21 – 65. The play, written by Robert Harling, is filled with hilarious repartee and a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, drawing on characters whose inner strength, deep bond for one another, and willingness to poke fun makes them marvelously amiable company in good times and bad. All the action takes place in Truvy’s home beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to her clients: Ouiser, the town’s rich curmudgeon (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); Miss Clairee, an eccentric millionaire with a raging sweet tooth; and M’Lynn, the local social leader whose daughter, Shelby, the prettiest girl in town, is getting married. The play moves toward tragedy when Shelby, a diabetic, puts her life at risk by getting pregnant.

Heart Health Biometic Screening On the first Wednesday of every month, from 10 a.m.–1 p.m., the Wellness Mobile will provide free heart health biometric screenings at the Renaud Spirit Center, including blood pressure, resting heart rate, blood oxygen levels, weight, and body mass index.

Body Composition Analysis It’s not how much you weigh, but the amount of body fat you carry that’s potentially dangerous to your health. Body-fat percentage is a much better indicator of overall health and fitness than just weight alone, because too much body fat increases your risk of developing serious health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. To sign up for this analysis, please call Monica at 636-577-9458 or email monica@ wellnessconnection-ofallon.com. W

Learn to Swim O

’Fallon’s Learn to Swim program is built on teaching aquatic and safety skills in a logical progression. Our goal is to teach children and adults how to swim and be safe in and around the water. The program is composed of 11 course levels:

Aqua Learning: Preschool: Preschool Plus: Level 1: Level 2: Level 3: Level 4: Level 5: Level 6: Level:

Shrimp I and II Turtle Seahorse Explorer Submarine Clipper Sailor Adventurer Barracuda Fear of Water

Aqua Learning: Parent and child participation is required. Class size is limited to eight parent-child couples. Preschool – Level 3: Class ratio is six children to one instructor. Levels 4 – 6: Class ratio is eight children to one instructor. Fear of Water: Class ratio is four to one instructor. Parents are required to be in the water the first four classes. Participants will move to the next class or skill level when all skills from the previous level are mastered. Some classes may seem repetitive, but we want swimmers to perfect their skills in order to advance safely. Please keep in mind that children learn at different paces and it’s common to repeat a class. Weekday classes at the RSC meet twice weekly for four weeks and last 35 minutes. Saturday morning sessions last 40 minutes and meet for seven weeks. Classes at Alligator’s Creek meet four times a week for two weeks and last 35 minutes.

36

Which class is right for my child? To ensure your child’s success in the Learn to Swim Program, it’s important to register children for the appropriate level. Children who have participated in the swimming program should register according to the last class successfully completed. Each child must pass a particular level before proceeding to the next.

Aqua Learning This program helps children ages 6 months to 3 years become comfortable in and around water and prepares them to learn how to swim. The class is divided into two sections: Shrimp I and Shrimp II. NOTE: Classes may seem repetitive because they are introductions to water.

Shrimp I • Ages 6 – 18 months Parent-child or guardian participation in the water is required. The instructor will demonstrate techniques as parents learn how to safely guide children and help them advance at their own pace.
