From the Executive Director

As you may have noticed, things are a little different with this Recreation Guide. Its new title is City of Eugene Recreation Guide, with those words replacing the Recreation logo on the front cover. And, as the outside “wrapper” explains, we will soon be changing the way the Recreation Guide is distributed. In August, we’ll send most patrons an email notice that the new fall guide is available online instead of mailing a paper guide. This change reflects the City of Eugene’s commitment to sustainability principles and to considering the triple bottom line of environmental health, economic prosperity and social equity in all decision making. Read the inside of the wrapper to learn more about this change and the benefits of online registration, to get answers to frequently asked questions, and to find out how folks who prefer a mailed guide can continue to get one. What hasn’t changed is that Recreation Services is again offering hundreds of fun, healthful, educational and entertaining things to do this summer. Check out the At A Glance section on pages 4 and 5 for a taste of the variety of offerings from May through August. And in the meantime, we hope those who are able will sign on to receive an email instead of a paper guide as we strive to manage resources more sustainably.

When Balwinder (Balli) Notre’s youngest child went to school, she began volunteering at Sheldon Community Center a couple of hours each day. She enjoyed it so much that when a Recreation Leader position became available,

she applied and got the job – her first ever! Today she works with children of all ages and abilities at the Sheldon KCA preschool program. She specifically enjoys working with children with disabilities and those who are placed

through Recreation’s inclusion services who need more one-onone attention. “I feel happy around kids,” she says, adding, “with the kids receiving inclusion services, I learn more about their history and their needs and that makes me want to help them and help their parents.” As a friend told her after she got the job, “You were made for this.” In addition to Sheldon Center, Recreation Services offers child care programs at Amazon and Petersen Barn Centers, and at several elementary and middle schools in the Eugene 4J and Bethel School Districts. For more information about Recreation’s child care programs, see page 10 or call 541-682-5312.

EWEB: A century of service

When a typhoid epidemic that struck Eugene more than a century ago was traced to the private, for-profit water company, outraged citizens voted to create a municipal water utility. Since its first meeting in 1911, EWEB has been serving its customer-owners with pristine water and reliable electricity. “In my mind, water is associated with health, light with learning, and it is our aim that each child, however poor or obscure, shall have at the minimum cost, these two fundamentals of civilization.” - Former Eugene Mayor Joseph Matlock, 1908

Avid biker finds a way to keep pedalling Since she was age five, Alice Pueschner has loved biking. As an adult, she toured Europe, participated in events such as CycleOregon and even moved to Eugene for the bike paths. She often biked 50 miles or more a week.

She was “bummed out,” as she says, when at age 85 concern for falling forced her off her two-wheeled bike. She learned about Adaptive Recreation’s bike rental program and came to find an alternative. “Last summer she came over every other week to try out three-wheeled recumbent bikes,” says Patty Prather, the Adaptive program’s equipment rentals manager. “I wanted to make sure I wanted it,” Alice says. She did. Patty connected Alice with a local vendor and she bought one of her own. “I ride about 10 to 15 miles a week now,” she says, adding, “I’m glad I came across the trike and that Patty led me to it.” In addition to a variety of adapted bikes, the Adaptive Recreation program also rents beach and all-terrain wheelchairs, adapted snow and water ski equipment, and adapted art equipment. For more information call 541-682-5311 and see pages 56 and 83. Alice Pueschner with her husband Jack and her trusty threewheeler.
