Parks and Recreation Foundation of San Carlos Ensuring quality living through San Carlos Parks & Recreation

Ringing the Alarm Bell! Dear Neighbor: As you are well aware, the City of San Carlos is experiencing an historic budget crisis which will significantly reduce a wide range of community services. The Parks & Recreation Department is faced with making significant cuts that may result in the closure of several community parks and impact the services and programs offered. The extent of the cuts has not been finalized at the time of this writing, but we do know that the Parks & Recreation Department has been asked to prepare a budget with a 20% cut – roughly $900,000. As board members of the Parks and Recreation Foundation of San Carlos, we have heard the pleas of many, many San Carlos citizens, asking that the Foundation respond to the current crisis by raising funds to keep our city parks open and community services intact. In response to this plea, the Foundation will launch a fundraising campaign to raise money for annual operating funds to offset the cuts. In the spirit of volunteer firefighters answering the ringing of the town bell, we will be asking the community to come together and join us to save these highly-valued community resources. In the near future, you will be receiving a letter asking for a donation to the Parks and Recreation Foundation of San Carlos. A relatively small donation from each San Carlos household can help keep parks open and services intact. Please consider not just donating, but asking your friends and neighbors to help out, too. We are in a frustrating time when facilities and services that form the bedrock of our community are being cut due to challenging economic circumstances and local and state actions over which we have little say. We understand that it is certainly not ideal to rely on private donations to fund what should be a public obligation. We are, however, a strong and vital community here in San Carlos, and until the broader issues are sorted out, we are called to action to provide a solution in the meantime. We are grateful and proud to be part of this community and appreciate your support. Howard Girdlestone, President

Cultural DEco Challenge at the Youth Center

Learning about other cultures is an important asset for our youth to have. Bridging the gap between cultures teaches our young people that we are not that different from one another and increases our awareness of how similar we all are in our love of family, traditions and communities. Each month, Youth Center Staff and participants learn together about a different culture in the world. Over the years we have learned about different countries, music, art, cuisine, child advocates, and heroes throughout the world. Visit the Youth Center and learn along with our students about other cultures.

Adult Special Interest Dog Obedience BEGINNING: In this class your dog is taught sit, down, stay, come, heel and easy (walking nicely at the end of the leash without pulling). The dog is taught to move freely and easily with the collar, so one day you barely have to use it. The dog is also taught to perform things and to willingly do or not do things, not just be prevented from doing them. Verbal and/or physical praise from owner is given which builds a relationship between owner and dog. Any specific problems you are having will be addressed and cured in class or by a lifestyle change at home. INTERMEDIATE: This class will instruct students in off-leash control. This is done with the addition of a 30' long line. You will need a 6' leather leash for both classes. ALL dogs must have current rabies/distemper vaccinations and be a minimum of 4 months old. Special nylon choke collar included in fee. Instructor: Paige Tyson (209-5326269) for class content questions. (6 classes) No class 5/4, 8/3 Beginning 17912 17913

Senior Exercise: Sit & Be Fit Senior exercise is an important part of the health and wellness of seniors. It helps increase your metabolism, energy levels and alertness. Research shows that those suffering from chronic illness benefit from exercise even if it is done while sitting in a chair. Chair exercises are great for older adults, those with disabilities, poor balance or anyone who has trouble standing or getting on the floor to do exercises. They are always gentle on the body and generally safe for most people to do. It is always a good idea to talk to your doctor before beginning a new exercise program, but you are not likely to injure yourself doing any of these exercises. • Bring a 5 lb. dumbbell weight with you to the first class • Be sure to wear loose clothing and comfortable, supportive shoes Day: Monday/Wednesday/Friday – Ongoing Time: 9:30-10:30am Suggested Donation $1 per class.
