With positive parental support, participation will allow children to develop the necessary physical, social and emotional skills that will allow them to experience success through the entire process, rather than simply measure the end result. Sports can be so much more than winning and losing. Teaching lifelong lessons about teamwork, strength and compassion are characteristics that our young athletes will be able to utilize and carry on throughout their lives. By offering a positive experience for area youth, we can help shape and mold the adults of our future by paving their way towards success.

Once young golfers have been introduced to the game, if they decide to take it seriously, the next step is our Developmental Program. The program, along with our Junior Play Days, will get them off to a great start toward a lifelong enthusiasm for golf. The Developmental Program is open to any golfer ages 9-18. These sessions are designed for players that already play and are looking to improve all areas of the game by doing the painstaking work that is necessary to become competitive golfers. This will be a group session where young golfers will have an opportunity to get in-depth instruction, video analysis of their swing and learn practice routines to help them develop their skills, so they can achieve their individual goals. Our philosophy is simple: we will begin at the hole and work backwards to the tee. The goal is to produce young golfers who improve, as they get closer to the hole. Progress will move at the pace of the youngster. In addition, each session will include competitions designed to make the young golfer utilize their skills when it matters most. Thursdays, June 6-July 25 • 12:30-2pm Registration begins April 1 at Highland Hills Golf Course Fee $99 per student/per session


Allen Park is an 11-acre neighborhood park located at 4830 9th St, constructed in 1987. The park is named after Grace Norcross Allen, a local poet and historian. Mrs. Allen frequently wrote articles for the Greeley Tribune from 1945-1948. Many of her articles related the historical characters and events in and around the Weld County area. She particularly enjoyed writing about children.

park consists of almost an entire block, while there are some homes located on the south side, the sidewalk around the park does pass in front of those homes and then reconnects to the park for a looped walking experience of just over a half mile. The open turf area on the west side of the park will be used for impromptu soccer or Frisbee® games, as well as a scenic picnic spot with a beautiful lake as a backdrop.

Allen Park provides a large playground structure with a separate swing area. The site provides a fishing lake which is stocked periodically by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Division. There is a fishing pier located on the north shoreline, however, there is ample open shoreline available for fishing opportunities. The

Whether you are visiting for a stroll, bringing the kids to the playground to burn some energy, fishing, or just to sit and enjoy watching the water lap upon the shoreline, Allen Park is ready for however you use it. Come play in the parks.

GREELEY’S NATURAL AREAS Spring is when Greeley’s natural areas spring to life after the long sleep of winter. Several of Greeley’s natural areas are blessed with an abundance of wild turkeys. A favorite spring sight along the Poudre River corridor are the flocks of young turkeys. Most, if not all, are probably descendants of a flock relocated from Hugo, Colorado by Colorado Parks and Wildlife about 20 years ago, a result of negotiations with a landowner for locating a stretch of the Poudre Trail.

coarse cluck. Then he raises his head high in the air, and listens intently for his mother’s call. As soon as it is discovered that one is missing, the whole flock stops, and the young turkeys raise their heads and await the signal from their mother. When she hears the note of the lost youngster, she gives a few anxious “yelps,” which he answers, and then, opening his wings, he gives them a joyous flap or two and with a few sharp, quick “yelps,” he goes on a run to join his companions.”

Young turkeys need their mothers. Unlike the tree-nesting birds like raptors and songbirds, whose parents leave the nest to gather food to take back to the nest; young ground-nesting birds such as turkeys rely on protection from their mother. During the first month the young require brooding – being sheltered under their mother’s wings at night and sometimes during the day for protection from the elements or predators. After about a month, they leave the ground and fly at night to a low branch, where the poults still place themselves under their mother’s protective wings.

When you visit a natural area this time of year, think about the area as a nursery with a sign on the door, “Shhh…Baby Sleeping, Do Not Disturb”, or, “Caution. Children at Play”. Wildlife needs space with minimal human intrusion to raise their young successfully. My advice – quietly watch from a distance, do not touch and do not disturb. If we stay on designated trails and quietly observe we may get to see our wild neighbors enjoying their world.

A delightful picture of the wandering hen and her brood appears in A.W. Schorger’s book The Wild Turkey: “They hurry along as if on a march to some particular point, sometimes tripping along in single file, one behind the other, and at other times scattered through the woods for fifty yards or more. When on these scattered marches it is pleasant to note some straggling youngster as he wanders out of sight of the main flock in an attempt to catch a ficklewinged butterfly, or delays by the wayside scratching amid the remains of a decayed log in search of a rich morsel in the shape of a grubworm. When he discovers that he is alone, he raises himself up, looks with his keen eyes in every direction for the flock, and, failing to discover them, gives the well-known

SISTER CITY PROGRAM

Moriya, Japan Student Exchange Program The City of Greeley and Moriya, Japan, have been celebrating and fostering a Sister City relationship for more than 20 years. During the summer of every odd year, such as in 2019, the City of Greeley organizes approximately ten high school students to visit Moriya as part of a student exchange program. During even years, such as in 2018, Greeley families host Moriya students. The Sister City Student Exchange Program is a wonderful opportunity for students from both cities to explore each other’s countries and learn more about their cultures, traditions and ways of life.

HOST FAMILIES NEEDED FOR THE 2020 MORIYA VISIT The City of Greeley will be hosting ten students and two chaperones from Moriya, Japan the summer of 2020 for approximately 5-7 days. They will be staying with local host families, visiting landmarks and learning what life in Greeley is like. Greeley’s Cultural Affairs Division is looking for families to volunteer as hosts for students and their chaperones for this visit. If you’re interested in being a host family, call or email Jason Evenson, Cultural Affairs Manager, at 970-350-9482 or at Jason.Evenson@greeleygov.com.
