From the Executive Director

Summer is a great time to have fun and – while you’re at it – be more active! There are dozens of activities listed in this Recreation Guide that can help your whole family be more active while you make the most of the season. And to kick it off, Recreation Services, Eugene School District 4J and Lane Coalition for Healthy, Active Youth (LCHAY) are presenting a free Let’s Move! recreational swim from 2:00-6:00 pm on June 20. Let’s Move! is the national program begun by First Lady Michelle Obama to solve the epidemic of childhood obesity within a generation. Eugene is a Let’s Move! city and Recreation Services is on the front lines, working to help youth lead healthier, more active lifestyles all year long. In Lane County, 60 percent of adults and more than one in four children are overweight or obese. Through a partnership with Eugene School District 4J, Recreation has provided in-school and out-ofschool physical activities for more than 700 youth over the past three years. Funded by the Carolyn M. White Physical Education Program grant, these activities included field trips for first and second graders, swimming lessons for third and fourth graders, and bicycle education and safety, skateboarding, rock wall climbing, and dance for middle and high school students. LCHAY, whose mission is to prevent childhood obesity through advocacy and action, is partnering with Recreation to reduce childhood obesity in the community through policy change and nutrition education. So, check out this Recreation Guide for fun, summer activities and come to the Let’s Move! event on June 20 (see page 17) to learn more about leading a healthier, more active life.

Instructors make swimming lessons fun The best way to prevent drowning is to learn to swim, and according to parents of children who recently took swimming lessons with Aquatics Services, the instructors made it a fun and rewarding experience:

Aquatics Aquatics Lessons

“Erik was an amazing instructor,” said one parent. “He was positive and very enthusiastic and showed that he genuinely enjoyed and cared for his students. He pushed them to improve while respecting their comfort levels. My daughter had an outstanding experience and showed good improvement. Thank you!” “Elisa was great,” another parent said. “She had creative ways to make the class fun but also while teaching skills. My daughter had a great experience with this enthusiastic supportive instructor.” Yet another parent said, “In two weeks my son went from being terrified of water to loving the pool. I can’t say enough good things about Meaghan and the whole program.”

For the joy of painting Betsy Pownall started attending Lois Enman’s watercolor class once she got out of grad school. “I always wanted to take a watercolor class,” she said. She’s continued to take the class for five years. She says Enman’s style of teaching is to share advice subtly. “We paint something different at every class and she gives us space to explore the medium.” Pownall says. “It’s amazing to watch beginning painters gradually gain the confidence to try new things,” she adds. Pownall has quite a collection of paintings now, some of which are hanging in local restaurants, such as the Palace Bakery. Although she’s never sold a painting, one did bring in a bid of $150 at a charity auction. And, this spring she entered her first juried show at an art center in Roseburg. Recreation offers painting classes at Amazon, Campbell, and Petersen Barn Centers. For more information, see pages 47-50. Paintings by Betsy Pownall.

Ways to Support

Full Moon Rising is the latest project of the Eugene Parks Foundation, which works to improve and enhance public parks, open spaces and recreational facilities and services for the benefit of area residents. City of Eugene Recreation presents Full Moon Rising in cooperation with local school districts to take elementary-school-age children on field trips to our local parks. These experiences help children build outdoor skills and confidence to explore nature, gain a social connection to each other, play hard and be active physically, and become future stewards of our parks and natural areas. With the support of the Eugene Parks Foundation, the program will be expanded to more classrooms throughout Eugene. For more information about the Eugene Parks Foundation or Full Moon Rising and to donate, go to www.eugeneparksfoundation.org.
