MANAGER’S MESSAGE The Recreation Team and I are pleased to present you with the 2019 Winter/Spring Richland Parks and Recreation Activity Guide. In the following pages you will discover information outlining numerous recreational and social opportunities coordinated by our enthusiastic Recreation team. Many classes or activities are led by dedicated volunteers and seasoned professionals. We challenge everyone to take time to explore these pages and we welcome you to try something new this year! New Programs for Winter/Spring 2019:  Ranger Talks by the National Park Service – Monthly on the 3rd Wednesday - See page 5  Billiards Instruction – Thursdays at 6:00pm (beginners) & 7:00pm (intermediate)  Teen’s Tarot Class – Monthly on the 4th Wednesday – See page 11  Zumba – Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10:00am - See page 6  Pop up Play Days – See page 5 In the fall of 2018 we began working with Michael Terrell Landscape Architecture, PLLC to assist with updating our Parks and Recreation Master Plan for 2019-2025. This plan will be a practical tool to guide the park and recreation system’s development/redevelopment for another 5-7 years. It will help the community prioritize programs and projects as decisions are made about how to utilize limited resources. We are encouraging all community members to share their feedback through an online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RICHLANDPARKS) This survey will be open Mid-December 2018 through January 31, 2019. Your thoughts are critical to help Richland identify projects, initiatives and opportunities to shape the future of the Richland’s Parks and Recreation system. We close out 2018 reflecting on this past year to develop our goals and dreams for 2019. Each year we strive to listen more, learn and grow to ensure we provide quality recreational programming to meet the needs and desires of a diverse community. We all are looking forward to glean wisdom and direction from the Parks and Recreation Master Plan survey results and we appreciate the conversations we have with community members daily. Never hesitate to reach out to myself or any of the Recreation team to ask questions or share your thoughts, recommendations, and kudos! We welcome the opportunity to connect with you. Thank you for choosing Richland Parks & Rec! Julie Jackson Recreation Manager

Richland Public Library, Story Circle

Active Toddler Story Time This is a new story time. This story time will follow a similar format to Baby Story Time but with more emphasis on independent rather than lap rhymes. There will also be more variety for the active portions (scarves, rhythm sticks, scrapers, etc.) rather than just shakers or bells. I am hoping this will make it easier for the babies who are two or older to transition to a more age appropriate story time. Join us for 30 minutes of stories, songs and rhymes geared toward 1 ½ to 3 year old children. Thursdays

Sports Concussion and Head Injuries (Zachery Lystedt Law) A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are serious. They are caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. Concussions can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications, including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly. In other words, even a “ding” or bump on the head can be serious. Concussions can’t be seen, and most sports concussions occur without loss of consciousness. Signs and symptoms of concussion may show up right after the injury, or can take hours to fully appear. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the signs of concussion yourself, seek medical attention right away. A youth athlete who is suspected of sustaining a concussion or head injury in a practice or game will be removed from competition at that time. For current information on concussions, please visit www.cdc.gov/concussion. Photo Release Photographs of participants may be taken for promotional purposes. Please notify staff or the photographer if you do not wish to have your photograph taken.
