Come read by the fire during new 50 plus program
POSTED: 08/27/2014
Don't keep a good book to yourself! Come share your most recent book discovery beside a crackling fire during a free new reading program being offered this fall by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

The program is called Favorites by the Fire, and meets in the Hearth Room at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty St., Overland Park. Each month, participants will gather on a Monday afternoon to discuss what they've been reading while enjoying light refreshments.

To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under enrichment and special interests. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “reading.”

Favorites by the Fire will meet at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 22, Oct. 20, Nov. 17, and Dec. 15. Each session will last an hour and there is no cost for this program, so feel free to join in at any time.

While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the district's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.

The JCPRD Activities catalog, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information, call (913) 826-3160. For updated program listings, visit the district's website at
