Table of Contents Winter 2014

Live Well and Prosper… The winter season is a season of joy and celebrations. It is the time of year when we reflect on the previous year and look forward to what the New Year may bring. As we celebrate, reflect and look forward this winter, I would like to encourage you also to live well. What does “live well” mean? In the world of recreation “live well” means taking the opportunity to promote our own health and wellness. This can be done by getting your body moving by joining one of our fitness classes, sports leagues or by stretching your mind as you learn a foreign language or how to play the guitar. Taking care of our body, mind and soul through recreation allows for a life well lived. Empower yourself to live well and find that perfect opportunity right here in Danville as we promote health and wellness through our programs. I invite you to explore all the activities, events and performances highlighted in the Activity Guide that will help you to live well and prosper!

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Town of Danville encourages those with disabilities to participate in our programs. If you have any special needs that require specific accommodations so you can fully enjoy our classes and programs, call 314-3400.

Residency Status Clarification

Course Cancellation

The program and facility fees cover a large portion of the actual costs, though Town of Danville residents also partially support the classes, events and facilities through their property tax assessments. Because of this, those program participants and individuals reserving Town facilities who live outside of Danville pay an additional non-resident charge. If you have any questions about this information, call 314-3400.

When registration falls below the minimum enrollment required, it may be necessary to cancel a class or program. At the time of cancellation, the Town will initiate a full refund. Check refunds may take 4–6 weeks.

Photo/Video Liability Disclosure Photographs and video may be taken of participants during a class or program, and these photographs and video may be used for Town of Danville publicity purposes.

Rainouts and Class Make-ups Whenever possible, make-ups will be given on those occasions when inclement weather or instructor illness requires that a class be cancelled. See instructor at next scheduled meeting for make-up date.

Those living outside the Danville Town limits include residents of the communities of Alamo and Diablo, and Alamo Creek, Bettencourt Ranch, Blackhawk, Bryan Ranch, Monterosso, Shadow Creek and Whitegate housing developments.

Special Notice to Alamo Residents living in the Alamo County Service Area R-7A: all R-7A residents are eligible to register for Town-sponsored programs scheduled at Hap Magee Ranch Park during the resident registration period. Non-resident fees still apply for these classes and activities. Call 314-3400 for more information.

No refunds (whole or partial) can be given for classes missed by the student.

Waitlists Waitlists will be created once a class has reached maximum enrollment. If space becomes available, you will be called.

Withdrawals (Credits/Refunds) Requests for withdrawal will be honored if requested no later than five business days prior to the first day of the class. Requests made less than five business days prior to the first day of class must be submitted in writing and will be considered on an individual basis. A $20 processing fee will be charged for processing refunds. Withdrawals for sports leagues may be approved if a team can be replaced before the first game.
