|JCPRD Spring Catalog Available After Jan. 29|
The Johnson County Park and Recreation District's Spring ACTIVITIES catalog will be available after Jan. 29. The quarterly publication lists more than 600 programs offered by the District from March though May and beyond. The Spring issue will also include the first public listing of 2006 program descriptions for the JCPRD's popular summer day camps, as well as information about the Heritage Park Triathlon and Duathlon and the Shawnee Mission Park Triathlon. Other Spring offerings range from arts and crafts to sports to nature activities, and include leagues, classes, seminars, workshops and trips. Included are programs for toddlers through senior adults.
Registration for classes in the Spring catalog will begin immediately after the catalogs arrive. Spring programs start on or about March 1.
The ACTIVITIES catalog is undergoing some major organizational changes beginning with the Spring issue. The changes are meant to make the publication more consistent and the help readers to find what they are looking for.
The reorganized catalog will feature 12 topic-based sections, which will be listed in alphabetical order from front to back of the catalog. As planned, the new sections are: Aquatics; Camps; Childcare; Fine & Performing Arts; Fitness & Health: Gymnastics; Hobbies & Special Interests; Nature & Outdoors; Special Events; Special Populations: Sports; and Travel. Within these sections will be age-based subheads (Preschool, Youth, Adult, 50 Plus) under which all programs pertaining to that topic will be listed in alphabetical order.
ACTIVITIES is mailed out to approximately 30,000 past participants who have taken part in a District program within the last year. Catalogs will also be available at Johnson County Library Branches, community centers, various businesses, and at District locations. Updated JCPRD program listings and 24-hour online registration are available at the District's website at www.jcprd.com. Look for Spring listings to be online Jan. 29 as well.
