A Message From Director James Smith

Purpose Driven Programming...

As we close out the summer season and move on to the next, we do so with the recognition that, like most organizations, we are a work in progress. We are coming off one of the busiest pool seasons ever at our Aquatic Facility. Attendance was at an all-time high. We offered games and activities for the kids during the day, theme family fun nights, and even birthday parties...all with the goal of giving more to our customers. But we also understand that more and/or bigger does not always equate to better. To insure that our programs are impactful and a true value for you, our community, we have implemented the process of purpose driven programming.

As you take time to scan through this brochure, I am sure that you will see some familiar programs as well as several new classes and activities. What you may not see, at least at first, is our commitment to our purpose driven programming.

Purpose Driven Programming is the reason that we are now committed to providing healthier snacks, daily organized exercise, and a new character development program in our Before and After School Program. Purpose driven programming is reflected in our desire to make the Teen Center available for all teens to Ďhangoutí after school. Itís the reason we have added the new Family Lego Challenge and Parentís Night Out. It is also the foundation behind programs like our 13th Annual Fall Harvest Festival and Christmas Festival and Parade. We want to offer our residents quality family friendly activities that are affordable and rewarding. Our Quarters Auction and Annual Christmas Shopping Trip to New York offers the ladies (or guys) a chance to get out and experience something different together with friends that is sure to be filled with lots of laughs and bonding experiences. We offer educational classes, everything from Pet First Aid and CPR to Adult Woodcarving to making Cinn-Sational Cinnamon Buns to Small Gasoline Engine Repair, all with the purpose in mind of teaching you something new and enjoyable and useful; allowing you to expand your horizons and sense of accomplishment. Our fitness and exercise programs are here to entice you to come on out, meet new friends, move a little, push yourself just a bit - all because we want you to be healthier, and thus, happier people. Losing weight and getting in shape is only a side benefit of our purpose driven fitness programming!

As a department, we are committed to maximizing your experience. We will continue to build on the foundation that starts with our core values and our commitment to you. We will work to strengthen our programs, to improve our communication, and ultimately strive to enrich and improve the quality of life for all in Louisa County.

We are not just creating programs. We are creating opportunities to grow stronger and healthier, to build relationships, to learn a new hobby, to master a new skill...opportunities to smile, to laugh, to make memories, to enjoy the experience!

We hope you will enjoy this edition of the Leisure Times and we look forward, as always, to serving you and your recreational needs.
