A Message From Director Jane Shelhorse

Where did the year go? I guess it’s true what they say ... “Time flies when you’re having fun!” and 2014 was a year full of fun at Louisa County Parks, Recreation and Tourism. We hope you took the time to “play local” with us; whether it was joining us for one of our special events, trying something new in one of our special interest programs, taking a dip at the aquatic facility, playing disc golf, walking the fitness trail, or just being outside at one of our parks while the children played on the playground. We’re all about enhancing your life and encouraging more family time.

With 2015 just around the corner, how will you play local this year? Look inside for some great ideas for you and your family. We have program offerings for every age - from preschoolers to active seniors; even classes for the family dog! Some are what you have come to expect ... Yoga and Softball, Aikido and Ballroom Dancing; but there are others that might surprise you like Woodcarving, Jewelry Making or our new Bee Keeping class. We even offer specialty classes like Simple Dog Tricks and Nose Work for Canines for your pet. Seniors can play Pickleball or join the Golden Age Club and make some new friends and attend our monthly meetings and lunches. They are all great ways to beat the winter blues!

As always, we will help you make those special memories at our Father-Daughter and Mother-Son dances in February. Hard to believe that so many of you who came to the dances when you were little are now bringing your children. It is after all, our 21st year of offering the Father-Daughter Dance! Many of you have expressed your sadness that you can no longer attend because your children are now too old. It truly is a tradition that we are very proud of and one we hope to continue on for many more years.

When you are “done with the cold weather” and want to get out of the house for a few hours, join us for our Quarters Auction in March where you can win great prizes for literally quarters. Come check it out and see what this home party, bingo, auction, and laughter combination is all about! Warmer weather will arrive (we promise!) and when it does, we have lots of outdoor fun planned. Our parks get busy. We host our outdoor Easter Eggstravaganza at the Louisa Town Park. Then comes T-Ball and Junior League Baseball for the kids and Adult Softball (men’s and co-rec leagues) for those kids-at-heart. We will all be glad that it will be time to start enjoying the great outdoors again!

Everyone needs a little “play” time in their life. It’s a great stress reducer and helps to keep your life in balance. Play is a great way to expand your mind, push your physical limits, and create some wonderful memories with your family and friends. We hope you will take the time to look inside and find your own way to Play Local with us in 2015.
