LIBRARY TO OFFER HEALTHY LIVING PROGRAMS If your 2021 New Year’s resolution includes increasing your activity, the Chickasha Public Library has a program for you! We encourage the community to build healthy habits by joining our Walking Challenge Chapter Two, and older adults interested in low impact activities can join our Tai Chi for Beginners Class. Our community challenge for Walking Challenge, Chapter 2 is to walk around the world by taking 49,802,000 steps as a community from now until August 2021. The walking challenge is a fun way to increase your daily activity. You can walk around a park, on your treadmill, or even around your home. Every step counts! Participants may use their personal step tracking devices, including smart watches, or can pick up a free pedometer at the Library after registering. Participants are encouraged to set a goal to increase their daily steps. If you want more information or to join the Walking Challenge, Chapter Two, visit http://bit.ly/WalkingChallenge2 or call (405) 222-6075. There are still spots available in the next session of Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance, taught by Library Director Lillie Huckaby. This twelve-week Tai Chi for beginners class will meet online on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Tai Chi movements help older adults reduce their risk of falling while also increasing balance and flexibility. Participants learn ways to improve their overall mind, body, and spirit through a series of slow, continuous movements. It does not matter how strong, flexible, or active you are; Tai Chi is designed for people at all health levels. “Tai Chi really helped improve my balance, I really enjoyed it,” said Jenny, a past Tai Chi class participant. The Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance class will meet online using Zoom, so participants do not have to leave home to participate in this low-impact group exercise class. If you would like to register for the class, call (405) 2226075 or email lillie.huckaby@chickasha.org. If you have questions or need help setting up a Zoom account, contact the library at (405) 222-6075. The Chickasha Public Library’s Walking Challenge program and other Health Literacy programs are funded through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries with a federal grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

PROPERTY MAINTENANCE REMINDERS Please remember that visiotrs and residents your home must park on an approved parking surface. Parking in the grass can cause soil erosion issues and environmental concerns, and is a violation of the City of Chickasha’s municipal ordinances. All four tires of vehicles must be on an approved parking surface, such as hard-surface drives or gravel drives installed prior to October 20, 2008. If you have any questions about parking surfaces, contact Community Development 405-222-6010. Section 34-4 (21) (b) (21)Parking of motor vehicle and trailers outside of an approved parking surface. (b)Unapproved parking surfaces include, but are not limited to, grass, vegetation, and dirt; provided, however, that one trailer may be parked in the backyard on an unapproved surface. Approved parking surfaces must comply with city zoning regulations and are generally gravel drives installed prior to October 20, 2008, or hard-surface drives.

PARKS & RECREATION UPDATE After the recent ice storm, Parks crew members worked to clear the 40-acre Shannon Springs Park in just 6 days in preparation of the Festival of Light. Crews wrapped more than 150 trees with lights and worked to ensure the park was safe for visitors of the Festival of Light. Parks & Recreation staff also worked to clean fallen limbs at all of the City’s parks, as well as at the fire and police stations.

PUBLIC WORKS UPDATE Public Works crews have been busy cleaning up from the October Ice Storm that impacted our city. By early December, they had already picked up limbs from curbs in about one-third of the city, as well as picking up and cutting limbs in Rose Hill and Fairlawn Cemeteries. If residents would like to drop off their limbs at Public Works, the facility is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. In addition to cleaning up from the ice storm, Public Works has been working to help support traffic control for the Festival of Light by setting up cones and barricades every night.
