Should weather conditions worsen after the indicated times, cancellation decisions will be made and communications handled in the best possible way according to the situation and staff resources.

Facility Information Worthington Residency Throughout this brochure, different fees are listed for Residents (R) and Non-Residents (NR). Resident fees apply to those who live or work in the city limits of Worthington, including spouses and school-aged children of those households. These households and companies pay taxes that support the Worthington Parks and Recreation Department and therefore pay the resident rate for memberships, programs, and rentals. All others pay the listed non-resident rate. Two proofs of residency are required at the time of registration to receive the resident rate. Examples of proof are a valid driver’s license, check with address, utility bill, or bank statement. Working Residents must work a minimum 20 hours per week for a company in the City limits of Worthington. Verification of payment of Worthington City taxes is required at the time of registration to receive the resident discount price. Acceptable verification is an original pay stub, dated within 30 days, that specifically denotes Worthington taxes being withheld.

Princesses, Knights, Castles... and Dragons Age: 6Y–12Y • Art Studio

Travel back in time to the Middle Ages and imagine yourself living in a castle with the fantasy of dragons in your kingdom. During this 5-day drawing workshop, students will learn how to illustrate period-specific characters and scenes, from knights in shining armor to elegantly-dressed maidens as they strengthen their drawing and coloring skills. There is a lot of focus on how to compose a well-drawn figure, but with a touch of the whimsy and intrigue of this time-period. We toss in a little architecture with a realistic drawing of a castle and add a dash of fantasy with some dragon images; learning how to draw both realistic and cartoon-style renderings. Get ready for five days of exciting, medieval imagery! Instructors: Young Rembrandts Staff #24887 Mon–Fri 12:30PM–3:30PM 1 wk. R $125 | NR $150

Fearless Falling

Age 18Y and up • Town Hall

New Location! The fear of falling is one of our strongest phobias, and injuries from accidental falls have become epidemic, but little has been done to help people actually learn how to fall. There are basic movements you can learn at any age that will greatly reduce your chance of serious injury from a fall. Learning how to fall safely is the primary purpose of the Fearless Falling classes. Based on Tai-Chi kung fu, you will also learn how to move smoothly, avoid falls, improve your balance and awareness, and pick up some basic self-defense skills. Fearless Falling is open to all adults, but you should be physically able to get up from floor level by yourself. Black-belt instructor Mike Grigsby has been teaching kung fu and falling skills for over twenty-five years. #24723 Mon 3:00PM–4:00PM #24724 Mon 4:00PM–5:00PM R $40 | NR $52

Feldenkrais Method®: Awareness Through Movement® Age 18Y and up • Topping Room

Feldenkrais lessons may be done standing, sitting or lying down. They explore basic movements in great detail, in a gentle manner that evokes in adults the quick, spontaneous learning of young children. This “reprograms” the brain for better posture and self-image, greater ease and pleasure in movement, and fuller relaxation in rest. Chronic tension, pain, anxiety, disability, and effects of aging are not confronted directly, but are simply left behind in a natural process of learning and improvement. Students are often surprised to find that the smallest and most gentle work produces the most profound changes. This method was developed by the late Israeli physicist Moshe Feldenkrais. Teachers and teacher trainings are certified by the Feldenkrais Guild. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. Instructor: Melinda Murphy #24718 Tue 11:15AM–NOON R $35 | NR $45

Griswold Center Programs Partnerships SALT—Seniors and Law Enforcement Together

Safeguarding the rights and well-being of seniors is a key responsibility of Ohio’s criminal justice community. By working together, law enforcement and organizations that serve older adults can accomplish much more than they ever could achieve alone. Supported by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is now a Triad, or partnership involving law enforcement, seniors and community groups that work to prevent crimes targeting the elderly. Worthington’s SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) council work with Triad to present education and prevention programs and implement strategies to reduce or prevent crime. The Worthington area SALT council meets quarterly at the Griswold Center and is a great networking opportunity for seniors to share neighborhood information as well as hear from local law enforcement on recent trends. For more information call (614) 842-6320.
