Newport Parks and Recreation ACTIVITY GUIDE SPRING 2014 Activities, Schedules, Events and much more for The Newport Recreation Center • Pool • Senior Activity Center 930 SW Abbey Street Newport, (541) 265-2244 www.samhealth.org Offering services in: Emergency Department Occupational Medicine Diagnostic Imaging Cardiopulmonary Intensive Care Rehabilitation Laboratory Sleep Disorders Program Maternity Wound Therapy Surgery Home Health Cancer Hospice Cardiac Rehabilitation Primary Care Clinics: Samaritan Toledo Clinic Samaritan Waldport Clinic Samaritan Depoe Bay Clinic Samaritan Pacific Internal Medicine Specialty Clinics: Samaritan Occupational Medicine Samaritan Orthopedic Surgeons To find a physician, call our Samaritan Pacific ENT & Allergy Physician Referral Network: Samaritan Pacific Surgical Associates 1-800-863-5241 Samaritan Pacific Womenâ€™s Health Group Samaritan Pacific Walk-In Clinic NEWPORTPARKS&RECREATION WWW.NEWPORTOREGON.GOV/RECREATION A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR This has been the craziest winter following the warmest fall anyone around here can remember. I like snow and I like the cold, but not so much on the beach. I expect to find snow at the higher elevations of our mountains and I expect to have some high winds and rain here on the coast. I just didn’t expect the extremes that we have seen. Some will say “Global Warming” and others will blame “Mother Nature” but I say “Don’t worry, be happy”. Happiness is a personal choice. How we embrace change is a personal choice. Worrying about what might happen without adequately preparing is actually a choice too. So, pull out that raincoat, boots or coat and go for that walk anyways. Plan to do an activity that makes you happy and stick to the plan, regardless of all the distractions that will try to get in the way. I think you will be glad you did, plus it will affirm that you are in control of your days and not the weather outside. This spring let’s take notice of all the flowers and beauty that we have all around us. Planting a garden is great fun and can produce fresh things to eat or to beautify your surroundings. Start with something you can handle and build on that success as time allows. Cleaning up the clutter around your home and sprucing up the front or walkway to your door can help transition into spring too. As I look forward to more daylight and less harsh elements, I have been filling my calendar with all the events, shows, races and opportunities available. I know it will be impossible to make it to everything, but I also know if I don’t get my recreational calendar together something might be forgotten. The time to get started is right now. Let’s do this. See you out there, Jim Protiva Parks and Recreation Director firstname.lastname@example.org RATES & PASSES We now offer all our annual pass holders access to the following classes at no additional cost: Stretch & Flex, A Matter of Balance, 10/10 Walking Class, T’ai Chi, Energetic Qigong and our new MAC class (Moderate Aerobic Conditioning Class) with instructor Jacquelyn Oakes.

M.D.T. Are you missing out? Have you lost opportunities to spend time with family and friends because of concerns about falling? Do you spend less time enjoying your favorite activities because you fear you might fall? If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls can help you get back to the people and pastimes you care about. It only makes sense to be concerned about falling, but letting the fear of falling hold you back from active living is even more dangerous. Limiting your activities leads to increased physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater, and increased isolation and depression can result from limiting interactions with your family and friends. The strategies taught in A Matter of Balance will improve your quality of life and help you stay independent! If you are an adult who is worried about the risk of falling, A Matter of Balance will help you reduce your fear and increase your activity levels. You will learn how to change your environment to reduce fall risk factors, to set realistic goals to increase your activity, and learn simple exercises to increase your strength and balance SPECIAL ACTIVITIES & FITNESS CLASSES MACC April 15 & 17 6:30 – 8:30 pm $20.00 for two-night class Instructor: Clint Murphy Learn basic techniques to defend yourself in different situations.

Music makes life more interesting and adds an emotional dimension to any event that greatly increases the effect of the experience. Can you imagine a movie or a political rally or almost any large event without music? So we all like music and understand its emotional impact, but more and more studies show a direct link between music and other learning. Children with music in their educational agenda may show increased math and language skills, as music learning supports all learning. And the most magical thing of all is that your child will love the music and the learning that it inspires. This program is a ten week class. Bruce and Debbie will provide everything that your child will need to participate. This is not a drop-off program, and you as a parent are the best teacher for your child. Come ready to sing and join the activities with your child and you will both have a great time. A younger sibling (8 months or younger) of a registered child may attend free. At least one parent or adult caregiver must accompany each family group. Bruce and Debbie’s goal is to provide music for young imaginations through research- based songs and activities. Their music and movement program is designed to provide musical magic for you and your child. Be ready to visit the music of various cultures around the world, play many different colorful instruments, take countless imaginary trips, feel the pulse of our gathering drums, dance with your Teddy bear or spin with a bright silk scarf, and sing the happy songs of our music collection. Come make music and make friends with Bruce and Debbie at Do Re Mi by the Sea. Feel free to give them a call at 541 961-6447. Debbie is retired from a nursing background. Her interest in music and dance goes back to her early teens when she learned to play her guitar and loved to sing folk songs. She sang in Sweet Adelines, was secretary for a local music club, violinist in a small weekly music group, and participated in several dance programs. Bruce has a background as an optician and worked for 30 years in that field. He has a BS degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Physics. He learned to play guitar in high school. His interest in music combines with his woodworking hobby, and he has made many instruments, including the mandolin and banjo Debbie will be using in class. He sees the elimination of music programs in public schools as a tragic misfortune and is pleased to bring music back into the lives of children.

SOME HEALTH BENEFITS OF SWIMMING 1: Do more with less ~ Swimming offers the ability to work your body without harsh impact to your skeletal system. When the human body is submerged in water, it automatically becomes lighter. When immersed to the waist, your body bears just 50 percent of its weight. 2: Increased Muscle Tone and Strength ~ Water is a substance about twelve times as dense as air. That means that every kick and every arm stroke becomes a resistance exercise -- and it’s well known that resistance exercises are the best way to build muscle tone and strength. 3: Improved Flexibility ~ Swimming puts the body through a broad range of motion that helps joints and ligaments stay loose and flexible. With every stroke, as you reach forward, you’re lengthening the body, which not only makes it more efficient in the water; it also helps give you a good stretch from head to toe. 4: A Healthier Heart ~ In addition to toning visible muscles like pectorals, triceps and quads, swimming also helps improve the most important muscle in our bodies: the heart. Because swimming is an aerobic exercise, it serves to strengthen the heart, not only helping it to become larger, but making it more efficient in pumping -- which leads to better blood flow throughout your body.
