This is also the time to register for one or more of the exciting Recreation classes and programs offered around the County this spring. From arts to sports to trips and tours, you are sure to find something of interest in this issue. We are excited about the new Wheaton senior center, and hope you get a chance to stop by. If you are looking for a job this summer, Montgomery County Recreation is hiring. Apply today! Registration for summer camps is also underway. Don’t delay because some of our affordable camps fill up quickly. Finally, don’t miss the third annual Sergeant Hector I. Ayala Water Safety Day in June at the Wheaton/Glenmont Pool.

Please note the following: Parents: in order to assist us in offering a quality program for your child, we ask that you do not remain at the class unless it is otherwise stated in the description. Experience has shown that children are easily distracted. Observation is allowed from designated areas only. At some facilities, clear observation may not be possible. Observation is not possible at the MLK pool. Class fee covers only the lessons and no other use of the facility. Participants may enter the locker rooms ten minutes before the start of class. Lesson questions should be directed to the facility where you wish to enroll. For a detailed list of skills taught in each class, please inquire at the pool where you will be taking lessons.

Read course descriptions carefully and select the level at which the student has mastered all prerequisite skills. Review the Guidelines for Placement in Swim Classes on the following page. If you are unsure of the student’s level or ability, evaluations are available at each indoor facility for one hour after the last lesson every Saturday and Sunday. All other times are by appointment. Registrations will not be accepted after the first lesson. There are no transfers. If you have enrolled in the incorrect level, you will be withdrawn and withdrawal fees will apply.

Aquatics Lesson Inclement Weather Policy When an indoor lesson is canceled due to inclement weather, a practice pass will be given to each participant at the end of the session. Practice passes can be used for admission to a recreational swim session at any Montgomery County Recreation aquatic center. Practice passes expire six months from the date of issue and are valid for one adult and one child. When two or more lessons are canceled due to inclement weather, a pro-rated credit will be issued to the payer’s ActiveMONTGOMERY account at the end of the session. The credit issued will be for the cost of the canceled lesson(s). The credit can be applied to future aquatics lessons or any other Montgomery County Recreation program.

Please check each pool's listings for lesson schedule changes due to facility conflicts. Lessons will be held on all other days the facility is open.

Using Mindfulness to Increase Happiness

Ages 18 & Up: For most of us, happiness is dependent on outside conditions. We suffer from the if only disease and never have enough to be satisfied. Possessions, jobs or relationships - we’re always looking for the next big thing that will finally make us happy. Eventually we realize that approach doesn’t work. Mindfulness meditation gives us tools to create a lasting happiness that doesn’t rely on others. We’ll explore how clinging to our attitudes and possessions create dissatisfaction, and how loving kindness, generosity and gratitude can help change your outlook on life.

Information & Registration

I’m excited to present Montgomery Parks’ Spring programs. Within these pages you’ll find a variety of activities for all ages and interests including nature programs, guided hikes, history lectures, story times, indoor and outdoor sports, and special seasonal events. Mark your calendars for April 22, as one of our most popular events returns - Brookside Gardens’ Wings of Fancy Live Butterfly and Caterpillar exhibit. Springtime also brings the reopening of the Cabin John Miniature Train and the Wheaton Miniature Train and Carousel. We will have many opportunities for you to celebrate Earth Month throughout April. I encourage you to consider attending Montgomery County’s Greenfest at Brookside Gardens on April 19, or volunteering at a park clean up or trail workday.

Spring is the best time to get out in the many gardens in our parks. Our Nature Centers, Botanic Gardens and Historic Sites all have gardens that need that extra TLC you can provide!

Spring into action by volunteering on one of many weekend Natural Surface Trail Workdays this spring. It’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors while improving a valuable community resource.
