A Message From Director Jane Shelhorse
Spring is finally here! The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining! Those late season snows made winter drag on this year, but before you know it we will be seeing 90 degrees on a regular basis. School will be out soon, and we hope everyone will be looking for ways to “Play Local!”
People often think of us when looking for summer camps for their children, and yes, we do offer lots of them. However, if you look through this issue of the Leisure Times, you will see there are lots of opportunities for everyone to add some play time into their life. Whether you are someone wanting to learn more about your new smart phone, how to make your own jewelry, or how to make cheese, we have a class for that. If this warmer weather has you wanting to become a little more active, we have a class for that too. If you have children you want to keep busy, well, we have lots of classes for that!
Thanks to some new partnerships, we are adding to our family friendly events this summer. We are hosting our new “Summer Cinema Series” on Tuesday evenings at the Louisa Arts Center in the town of Louisa. This is a great way for families to enjoy some kid-friendly movies without having to travel or pay big theater prices!
If music is what you are looking for, you can head over to “Saturdays in the Square” in downtown Louisa or “It’s Finally Friday” at Walton Park in Mineral.
You can also check out page 4, or go to our website under Fun For The Family to discover the Scavenger Hunt that we have created with the Historical Society. Not only can you learn a little bit more about Louisa County history, but you can win some really cool prizes too. This is such a great way to spend lazy evenings or weekends traveling around our beautiful county with your kids; spending quality time and tossing in a bit of education without them even realizing it!
Of course, when the temperatures really start to rise, that’s the time to head to the pool. Our reasonable prices make it a great place to spend summer days. You can relax pool side, while enjoying an ice cream or ice-cold bottle of water from our concession, while the kids keep themselves entertained in the water. And if you want some wet and wild family fun, come to our Family Pool Parties where we are open late with theme-oriented music, games, and fun pool activities.
Should you decide to take the family to Kings Dominion, Busch Gardens or Water Country, you can get your ticket from us and save some bucks! And we have made it even easier for you to purchase your tickets ... we now take credit cards for ticket purchases!
We hope you will enjoy this edition of the Leisure Times and we hope it will give you all kinds of ideas on how to “Play Local!” Most of all, we hope you enjoy your family, friends, and this wonderful place we call home...Louisa County!
