CREATIVE ARTS BEGINNER NEEDLE FELTING

CREATING WITH ALCOHOL INKS

Instructor: Margaurita Spear. Embrace the creative potential of wool! Needle felting involves working with wool roving to create two-dimensional as well as three-dimensional crafts and artworks. Through hands-on experience participants will acquire the skills needed to follow a pattern, design a project free-style, embellish clothing, and create impressive homemade gifts.

Instructor: Margaurita Spear. Alcohol inks are solid-based dyes that work best on non-porous surfaces like coated paper, glass or glazed ceramics (like tiles). The unpredictability of using inks on these types of surfaces can be exciting and there are techniques that can be used to manipulate the inks into abstract designs that occasionally result in hidden images, like finding shapes in clouds. In this class we will employ ceramic tile as a surface for exploration. The finished tiles can be used for decorative display or even functional coasters.

The focus is on the fundamentals of how to create an “artificial lure,” commonly called a fly, which represents an imitation of what a fish would eat in nature. We will talk about the tools, materials, supplies, and techniques needed to create a fly. Furthermore, we will discuss basic entomology and how it will relate to the flies you will actually tie. All participants will leave with flies that they have tied that can be used on the river or lake. Fly tying is perfect for the creative person in addition to the fly fisher who loves keeping their boxes filled. To creative minds, designing flies can be a never-ending puzzle. It’s always on their minds, teasing at your thoughts, using a combination of interesting feathers and furs. Come and explore something different!

Eleven Wednesdays, 6:15-7:15PM. Runs on 2/26, 3/4, 3/11, 3/18, 3/25, 4/1, 4/8, 4/15, 4/29, 5/6 & 5/13 (no class 4/22) at the Beverly Senior Center. $163.

PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT NOTE ON POTTY TRAINING… All of our campers must be fully and reliably potty trained when they begin camp. This means that your child is able to recognize when they need to go, and can ask to use the potty outside of regularly scheduled bathroom trips. If your child is still having “mistakes” at home, we would not consider them to be potty trained. Counselors are not allowed to assist with diapering and as such, campers may not wear diapers or pull-ups to camp. We understand that the occasional potty mistakes still happen with the 3 to 5 year old camper, and so we will allow up to three accidents per session. If a fourth accident occurs within a session, the child will not be able to return to that camp session. Our Medical Director will assist with potty accidents, and 25guardians will be immediately notified.

ADVENTURE CAMP Are you ready to hike up legendary Mount Monadnock? Do you dare kayak out of Lynch Park and on to the open sea? Ready to swim through huge waves and lounge on the beaches of Old Orchard? Can you take on Superman The Ride at Six Flags without losing your lunch?? For kids going into 6th through 8th grade. This is a best seller! Day trips, overnight trips, games and crafts keep this group very busy. It’s a great balance between trying new things (like rock climbing and camping!), choosing activities you like, and spending time with your buddies. The success of this program lies with its creative and innovative staff who understand the maturing process of young teens. Campers build friendships and self-confidence, work on cooperative skills and learn real life responsibilities while having a great time. Staff to camper ratio of 6 to 1 allows for more individual attention than most programs for this age group. For a change of pace and scenery, Fridays are spent alternately at Camp Paradise and Obear Park (in Ryal Side). Sessions run for two weeks. *Please note that if your child opts out of an overnight trip, we are not able to provide an alternate experience or accommodate them at our other Lynch Park day camps.

BEVERLY DOG ORDINANCE These rules regarding use of Beverly parks to walk dogs were amended by the City Council on 2/16/2016. The ordinance regarding dogs is now Article III, Chapter 117, Sections 117-5. Disposal of animal waste, 117-10. Dogs on beaches and in parks, 117-13. Dog control: - All dogs must be on a leash at all times while in public parks - Owners must pick up after dogs to keep the parks clean - All parks are closed to the public at 10:00PM - Dogs are prohibited from all municipal cemeteries, per ordinance Article III, Chapter 117: Animals, Section 117-13.c

LYNCH PARK

PET WASTE REMINDERS

Memorial Day to Labor Day - Dogs are not allowed at Lynch Park after 7:30AM - On-leash dogs are only allowed in the park from 6:00AM to 7:30AM Labor Day to Memorial Day - Only on-leash dogs are allowed in the park from 6:00AM to 10:00PM

Pollutants from improperly disposed pet waste may be washed into storm sewers or melting snow. Storm sewers do not go to the SESD treatment plant. Instead most storm sewers drain into streams, lakes or along the coast carrying many pollutants along with storm water.

LINDSAY PARK, INDEPENDENCE PARK, BEVERLY COMMON, DIX PARK, COLGATE PARK & COONEY FIELD

When pet waste is disposed of improperly, your health may be at risk, too. Pets, children who play outside, and adults who garden are most at risk for infections from some of the bacteria and parasites found in pet waste. Flies may also spread diseases from animal's waste.

Year Round - Only on-leash dogs are allowed in the parks from 6:00AM-10:00PM

Beverly’s dog population is estimated at 4000 and using that statistic as a baseline, it would suggest a “solid waste” of about 1600 pounds every day.

Pet waste may not be the largest or most toxic pollutant in urban waterways, but it is one of the many little sources of pollutants that add up to a big problem for water quality. Fortunately, there are simple things we can do to keep water clean.

Cleaning up after your pet can be as simple as taking a plastic bag or pooper-scooper along on your next walk. What should you do with the waste you pick up? No solution is perfect, but here are the choices: Flush it down the toilet– The water from your toilet goes to the SESD treatment plant or private septic system that removes pollutants before the water reaches a water body. Bury it in the yard– Dig a hole or trench about 5 inches deep, away from vegetable gardens and water bodies (lakes, streams, wells, oceans), or ditches with water. Throw it in the trash– This may be easy, but it is not the best solution. After collection, the waste is taken to an incinerator that can cause pollution problems. Another option is to install an underground pet waste digester that works like a small septic tank.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR DIRECTOR Winter is in full swing with several snow storms already and the holidays are in full swing. Things at Lynch Park are beautiful as usual due to the hard work of the folks from the Department of Public Services. Lynch Park is truly the “Gem of the North Shore�, just one of our many beautiful waterfront parks that provide so much enjoyment to guests year-round. We would like to welcome Valentino Eramo to our staff as our new Recreation Facilities Coordinator. Val will be responsible for tracking issues at our many parks and playgrounds in addition to monitoring the upkeep of our buildings and facilities at Lynch Park, Dane Street Beach, Obear Park and Camp Paradise. During the summer, Valentino will oversee our park rangers and lifeguard staff to ensure public safety. We completed a new addition to the play structure at Livingstone Playground in Ryal Side with the help of many great neighbors participating in the community build over a couple of weeks in October. Special thanks to Todd Rotondo for keeping us on track and recruiting so many great volunteers! We could not do projects like this without the help of dedicated neighbors. We are very lucky to have the continued generous support of the Beverly Community Preservation Committee to fund these projects and many more around the city. This group works incredibly hard to help many groups in Beverly fund projects that will continue to make Beverly an amazing place to live. I would also like to thank the David S. Lynch Trustees for continuing their financial support of improvements to our public parks and open spaces. Without these two groups, we could not do any of these great projects. Many thanks to Mayor Cahill and the folks from DPS for their continued support of the many improvements to parks and open spaces in Beverly. We are very lucky to have such beautiful recreational resources in Beverly for everyone to enjoy. We continue to plan for the 2020 summer season. Many thanks to our full-time staff for their dedication throughout the year and to our summer staff and CIT volunteers for their hard work every summer. We look forward to continuing to serve you and wish you all a safe holiday season and a Happy New Year. Thank you very much for your continued support during my 17 years as Bev Rec Director. I look forward to hearing from you and helping to make your leisure time for you and your families healthy and enjoyable. Feel free to send us ideas for programs and improvements.
