HEALTH & WELL BEING GREEN SWEEP: SAY HELLO TO LESS TOXINS & CHEMICALS! Instructor: Amy Lackie. We all make New Year’s resolutions to improve something about ourselves, so why not improve the health of your household? More specifically, what you bring into the house that impacts both your environment and possibly your health. Let's look at all those supplies under the sink, in the laundry room, our bathrooms and pantry. What does the label tell you? Where can you find more information? How bad is that cleanser, mascara or shaving cream for you? We'll explore those questions and share information about health and wellness products that support you, your family and your home naturally. We look forward to having you join us for this workshop!

DIY MAKE & TAKE YOUR OWN PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS

Instructor: Amy Lackie. Do-It-Yourself (DIY) has always been popular, but has become even more so through television, magazines and even kits you can purchase. We can DIY for the house, the garden, and our pets, but what about personal care items like laundry detergent, toothpaste and fragrance? It turns out that some of the best products to use are those we make at home because we know exactly what’s in it and can adjust it to our personal preference. We’ll make three items to take home and use for yourself or give away as a treat. The items include: body scrub, relaxing bath salt, and lip balm (PLEASE NOTE: the items being offered may change depending on availability of ingredients). This workshop will be part discussion and 100% fun! It is hands-on, adult and kid friendly.

HEALTH & WELL BEING INTRODUCTION TO AROMATHERAPY

LONG TERM CARE PLANNING STRATEGIES

Instructor: Amy Lackie. Walking into the kitchen to the smell of banana bread baking in the oven instantly transports me to my grandma's kitchen. It's such a happy memory that makes me smile, feel warm and filled with joy. This is in the simplest form, aromatherapy. Essential oils have the ability to improve our health and wellness and transform our homes into natural havens for our families. How do we use them? What’s the best one? What do they smell like? Are all essential oils created equally? What’s the best method for disbursing essential oils? We’ll discuss all these questions and demystify essential oil use in aromatherapy.

Instructor: James Hayward. This is an informational and educational workshop on a variety of holistic long term care planning strategies. We will define what an extended health care event is, we will discuss the financial and emotional impact of this unexpected, unplanned, unfunded event. We will also touch upon what the Government does and does not cover and how this could impact your family’s overall well-being. Space is limited and registration is required prior to attending. One Wednesday, 7:00-8:00PM. Runs on April 10 at the Beverly Senior Center. $5.00.

REAL FOOD: A DISCUSSION Instructor: Iris Weaver. Real food: what is it? In today’s world we have a million choices of foods and foodstuffs to eat, but how truly nourishing, nutritious, and/or delicious are they? Does “eating healthy” mean counting calories, making sure to get the exact right vitamins and nutrients, or choking down concoctions that taste, well, less than pleasant? Up until the 1950s our ancestors survived and thrived without much of what is in stores and fast food joints today. Let’s talk about what “real food” is, where to find it, and how to consume it. If you are interested in eating food that is truly healthy and delicious, and want to minimize harmful additives in your diet, come and join this discussion! Handouts included. Suggested reading (but by no means required): “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” and/or “In Defense of Food” both by Michael Pollan. One Monday, 7:00-9:00PM. Runs on February 25 at the Beverly Senior Center. $26.

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 guardians will be immediately notified.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: Independence Park - Dogs are not allowed on the beach from 8:00AM to 7:30PM Cooney Field - Dogs are only allowed beyond outfield fence of baseball field All Other Parks - Dogs are not allowed on the beaches during times that they are not allowed in the parks

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.

ALL OTHER BEVERLY PARKS Memorial Day to Labor Day - Dogs are not allowed in any public park from 7:30AM to 7:30PM - Dogs are only allowed in the parks from 6:00AM to 7:30AM and from 7:30PM to 10:00PM Labor Day to Memorial Day - Only on-leash dogs are allowed in the park from 6:00AM to 10:00PM PLEASE NOTE: On-leash dogs are allowed to use all Beverly parks during the above hours but are not allowed on any ball fields or in any playground areas, sand boxes or garden areas at any time.

34

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 has been pretty mild so far with and things have calmed down a little here at Lynch Park. This gives us a chance to look back at 2018 and remember all of the great things that happened throughout the year. It was another busy year and our staff was awesome as usual! We completed a lot of projects this year, which made for an incredibly busy summer and fall. Thank you very much to the Community Preservation Committee and the David S. Lynch Trustees for their very generous grants to help fund many of these projects. New playground structures were installed at Vittori Park and Colgate Park, replacing equipment that was outdated and unsafe. Pete’s Park in Centerville, formerly Longfellow Park, was transformed from a small, deteriorating, non-ADA accessible park into an amazing, vibrant, 100% ADA accessible playground with new play equipment, basketball court, viewing area, educational components and many other features around the park. This was one of our largest projects ever and we are so proud of the finished product! This would not have been possible without the hard work of many people. First, Courtney Melei and the folks on the Pete’s Park team for their dreams and incredible work to raise funds and make this happen. Mike Collins, Jim Turcotte and all of the folks at the Department of Public Services took on the role of general contractor for this project and dedicated months of DPS work hours to make this project a reality and significantly reducing the cost of the project to make it affordable. The support of Mayor Cahill, the City Council and the Bev Rec staff made this project possible as well. Great job everyone! In addition to these new projects, 18 playgrounds around the city received over $175,000 of repairs to correct many safety issues and ensure that all 28 playgrounds in the City of Beverly are safe and fun for the children to use. More work will continue each year to keep up with any issues that might come up. We continue to plan for the 2019 summer season. Don’t miss Touch A Truck at BHS on Sunday, May 19 from 10:00AM-1:00PM! As usual, many thanks to our full-time staff for their dedication throughout the year. Also, many thanks 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 and Happy New Year. Thank you very much for your continued support during my 16 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.
