2016 has been a busy year for ERBM. Here are a few updates on projects, programs, and more from throughout the past year. Did You Know? Construction has been underway at Town Park throughout the fall of 2016 with river bank stabilization, which includes rip-rap (stones that help provide foundation and protect the river bank) and boulder access points. This project will be completed in the summer of 2017 with a new hardscape activity pavilion, a concrete parking lot, a connected walking path throughout the park, restroom refurbishments, as well as fencing, lighting, and drainage improvements. Check out the latest project information on our ERBM website at www.MeekerRecDistrict.com. Did You Know? There have been significant improvements to Paintbrush Park over the past year, including: newly installed concrete path walkways, improved landscaping around the ballfields and community garden, addition of LED lighting in the parking lot, concession building drainage and drinking fountain improvements, memorial bench installation, and archery range road and bridge enhancements. If you haven’t been to the park lately, stop by and take advantage of these great amenities.

New concrete walkway installation at Paintbrush Park.

Did You Know? ERBM is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this year and working toward 35,000 visits to the Meeker Recreation Center in 2016 (currently close to 31,000). If numbers continue as they have been tracking, we should reach our 35,000th visit in December. Keep an eye on the current number of visits – the 35,000th guest will get recognized! Come on in and be a part of the 35th Anniversary!

Did You Know? According to the U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services most health benefits occur with 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity physical activity. That’s 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. The Meeker Recreation Center, which is open 94.5 hours a week and includes various fitness programs, offers a wide variety of activity options to assist you in meeting this goal. Whether it's spin, yoga, pickleball, or the more traditional weight training or treadmill workouts, we’ve got you covered.

POOL FAQ

For the safety of all patrons, please refer to these answers to some frequently asked questions. Can my children swim alone? • 5 and under must be within arm's reach of an adult that is at least 13 years of age. • 6 and 7 year-olds and non-swimmers (those in swim vests) must stay in the same pool as an adult that is at least 13 years of age. • 6 and 7 year-olds that have passed the swim test may stay in MRC pools unaccompanied. Adult that is at least 13 years of age must remain in the facility. How many children can I bring to the pool? • Zero-Depth Pool An adult may supervise up to three children under 8 years old. • Leisure and Lap Pools An adult may supervise up to two children under 8 years old. Why are showers required before I swim? • Due to the high pH levels in personal hygiene products (shampoos, deodorants, lotions, etc.), chemical imbalances may occur in the pool.

In 1947, Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) was Hollywood's top screenwriter until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs. "Trumbo" recounts how Dalton used words and wit to win two Academy Awards and expose the absurdity and injustice of the blacklist, which entangled everyone from gossip columnist Hedda Hooper (Helen Mirren) to John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, and Otto Preminger. Rated R.

"He Named Me Malala"

ERBM Recreation & Park District

In 1872, John Henry Clayton (Keifer Sutherland) retires as a gunfighter and returns to his hometown of Fowler, Wyoming in hope of repairing his relationship with his estranged father Reverend Clayton (Donald Sutherland). He soon learns that a criminal gang is terrorizing ranchers who refuse to sell their land for the creation of a railroad in the area. John Henry is the only one who can stop them, but his father does not want his son to return to a life of violence. Rated R.

This film is an intimate portrait of Malala Yousafzai, who was wounded when Taliban gunmen opened fire on her and her friends' school bus in Pakistan's Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old teenage, who had been targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls' education in her region of Pakistan, was shot in the head, sparking international media outrage. Yousafzai has since emerged as a leading campaigner for the rights of children worldwide and in December 2014 became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. Rated PG-13.
