GREETINGS FROM YOUR

NEW LENOX COMMUNITY PARK DISTRICT! I would like to start off by thanking everyone who came out to Proud American Days. As always, this event would not be possible without the hard work of our staff, sponsors, vendors, local community groups and our partnerships with local government agencies. This truly is an event for children and adults of all ages.

OUR MISSION is to provide safe recreational opportunities through diverse programs, facilities and open space, with the overall goal being improvement of the quality of life in our community.

BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS

The New Lenox Community Park District will celebrate its 50th Anniversary this year. To help celebrate, we are holding different events and discount days throughout the year. This season all are invited to attend our Family Prom on Sunday, March 10. We are putting on our groovy, 60’s-themed outfits and will celebrate the day with music, snacks and tie-dye shirts to make. Be sure to keep a lookout on our website and social media pages for upcoming events celebrating 50 years of “Quality Community Life”. Speaking of websites, have you checked our new website yet? If not, visit newlenoxparks.org today to see the updates! It is much easier to navigate and find what you are looking for. As we move into the winter months, be sure to visit the Village Commons for Christmas in the Commons which kicks off on Sunday, December 2. This year the New Lenox Community Park District was able to add a second synthetic rink that will be used primarily for the younger children learning to skate. We would like to thank the New Lenox Friends of the Parks for their donations towards the purchase of the new synthetic rink. We appreciate all that they do for the community.

Remember…Try a new program, attend a new event and be active in your community! Sincerely Ted Schulz Park Board President

Brian Fischer, Vice President

Garry Kraemer, Treasurer

Dale Larson, Secretary

Bill Thomson, Commissioner

PARK BOARD MEETINGS OPEN TO PUBLIC Anyone wishing to address the Park Board must notify the Board in writing by noon on the Friday before the regular meeting.

PRESIDENT’S LETTER

Also featured in this Program Guide are some new programs and events! We will be introducing a new special event just for the dogs! Be sure to come out to our Dog Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 14 where the eggs will be filled with dog-friendly treats and a few special eggs will be out there to “sniff” out. We are offering a wide variety of cooking classes for all ages. From learning the basics of following a recipe to pasta and pierogi making, we have something that you will definitely enjoy and have fun doing. We will also be hosting a Co-Ed Wiffle® Ball Tournament on Saturday, May 18. Get your teams together! Don’t delay!

Ted Schulz, President

Meetings will be held at 6:00pm on the third Wednesday of the month at the Village of New Lenox (1 Veterans Parkway) in the Board Room - 2nd Floor.

There is a variety of trees that can be purchased and planted. Please keep in mind that trees may be purchased at any time, but are only planted in the spring and fall and benches will be installed weather permitting.

Reminder to Pet Owners

What is the S.T.O.P. PROGRAM? S.T.O.P. stands for Stop Trashing Our Parks and is represented by our mascot, Bucky the Beaver. Bucky’s mission is to keep our parks safe and free of vandalism. To help support Bucky’s mission, cash rewards will be paid for information leading to the apprehension of park vandals (individuals providing information are not required to identify themselves). Hopefully, kids of all ages can relate to our friendly Fan Club! mascot and his mission.

PARK POLICIES PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS • Children must be the correct age by 9/1/18, unless otherwise specified. In order to provide your child with the best possible recreational and/or learning experience, all of our programs are planned according to the ages listed in our Program Guide.

PARK DISTRICT POLICIES

6

Although your child may turn the correct age during the session of a program, our age requirement date coincides with the school district’s date to assist with the fundamental growth of the child in the age appropriate programs and therefore would not be eligible for registration.

Classes are for the registered child only, except for classes with an adult. Parents should not remain in the classroom or gymnasium after dropping off their child. This is in the child’s best interest, as continual interruptions tend to affect participants’ attention spans and inhibit the establishment of peer relationships.

CANCELLATIONS Staff reserves the right to consolidate, postpone, reschedule or cancel any program due to changes in day, dates, times, instructor or insufficient enrollment. If program enrollment does not meet the minimum number of registrants, we try to cancel the program seven days prior to the start date or by the registration deadline. For cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e. inclement weather, facility emergencies or scheduling conflicts), which are announced by Lincoln-Way District 210 or New Lenox School District 122 at facilities where Park District programs are scheduled, Park District programming will be cancelled as well. All attempts will be made to reschedule cancelled classes. However, the New Lenox Community Park District is sometimes unable to accommodate make-up classes and will not refund money in such instances.

PROGRAM BEHAVIOR POLICY

All children must be potty-trained, unless they are attending a class where an adult stays with them or is otherwise stated in the class description. Diapers are not permitted in independent classes unless stated in the class description.

Participants are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times. The following guidelines have been developed to help make Park District programs safe and enjoyable for all participants. Additional rules may be developed for particular program and athletic leagues as deemed necessary by staff.

Please do not bring food to any class unless previously arranged.

Show respect to participants and staff and take direction from staff.

For your child’s safety, all children enrolled in programs must be picked up from the specific classroom or program site by their parent(s) or designated guardian. No child will be released from the classroom to anyone other than these individuals.

Refrain from using abusive or foul language or from causing bodily harm to self, other participants or staff.

Show respect to equipment, supplies and facilities. The New Lenox Community Park District reserves the right to terminate a party’s participation in a Park District program due to that party’s disruptive behavior or conduct.

A mandatory sign-in and sign-out procedure for all participants is required for all Park District Programs. Children must be accompanied by an adult when escorted to and from class.

REFUND POLICY NO REFUNDS ARE GIVEN: (1) once a program begins unless a replacement is found; (2) on material fees unless we cancel a program; (3) on bus trips; or (4) for special events or one-day programs. A full refund is issued if we cancel a program or trip.

When a participant cancels out of a program, a full refund LESS a $5 service charge (per program) will be granted. A $5 service charge will also be assessed on all program transfers. These requests will only be honored if the request is submitted THREE BUSINESS DAYS prior to the start of the program or activity.

All refunds less than $10 will be applied as a credit to the customer’s account.

Every effort will be made to process refunds within 30 days, but in some instances it may take longer.

Throughout the 2019 Program Guide series, you will see a combination of current and past photos showing how the New Lenox Community Park District has evolved with the overall goal being the improvement of the quality of life in our community.

DID YOU KNOW? The Park District’s first park was built in 1971: Lions Den Park located off of Cedar Road. The First President of the New Lenox Park Board of Commissioners was Harlow Jensen. The Park District’s Mascot, the beaver, first appeared on May 8, 1973. The beaver was officially named “Bucky the Beaver” in 2017. He represents our Stop Trashing Our Parks (S.T.O.P.) Program. Our first Program Guide was created in 1977 and consisted of three pages folded. Today’s Program Guide totals 60 pages.

Be the first to see the world premiere of “August Rush”, a neverbefore-seen musical based on the original motion picture. Evan Taylor, an 11-year old orphan, believes in music like some believe in fairytales. In a cruel twist of fate, Evan’s mother, an accomplished classical cellist, and his father, the lead singer of a rock band, don’t even know he exists in this world. Even after so many years gone, Evan has not given up hope as he relentlessly searches for the parents he knows need him. Quickly discovering he too is a musical prodigy, Evan surrenders himself to the symphony of sounds and follows the music. In this inspiring love story, music is everywhere, but will it lead Evan home? The moving story of “August Rush” is brought to the stage in Paramount Theatre’s first new musical. We invite you to be a part of history and join us for this world premiere.

Resident Registration begins on Saturday, March 9 at the Lions Community Center, 1 Manor Drive, from 8:00am-11:00am (Doors open at 7:00am)

Nonresident Registration begins Monday, May 11 Limited space available

Meet & Greet Days for Registrants Thursday, September 5 and Friday, September 6 Classes begin the week of September 9, 2019 and run through May 15, 2020.

What does Kiddie Kampus offer its participants? The New Lenox Community Park District offers preschool classes designed to develop social, emotional and physical skills to ensure school readiness. A child’s separation from parents and involvement with a non-family member is one of many major steps towards his/her development. Kiddie Kampus provides a safe and supportive environment for your child’s first school experience while increasing his/her self-esteem and confidence through age appropriate instruction. Covered during the year are color, shape and number recognition, an introduction to number concepts and letter recognition. Your child’s quest for learning will be nurtured through creative play, building friendships, working individually and cooperating as part of a group. These activities promote patience, sharing and the awareness that there is a whole world of people surrounding and supporting them. Songs, stories, activities and games are used for reinforcement and fun.

KIDDIE KAMPUS

The remainder of the fees are then divided into eight equal monthly payments. All payments are due on the 15th of the month, beginning September 15. A late fee of $25 will be assessed to any account that is delinquent. 3. If you pay your full tuition payment at time of registration, the $50 non-refundable registration fee will be waived. 4.

Each player bats once an inning and no scores are kept. Blast Ball consists of one base and it makes a “honking” noise when a player steps on it. Major League Baseball recognizes Blast Ball as part of its campaign to promote the resurgence of baseball at the grass-roots level.

Feel the excitement of scoring a goal! Soccer games are played daily with instruction.
