Lincoln Park District notes
September 6, 2013, Fall is upon us and it is time for Co-Ed Volleyball registration. All necessary forms are available at the front desk to pick up. Registration actually begins September 6 and runs through Tuesday, September 24. Your fees will include approximately 10 matches for the fall season. Play will be on Tuesday evenings starting October 1 and is expected to run through December 3. This recreational league is a great way to get some exercise and spend a hour with friends or co-workers. We urge you to come on out and enjoy a great time.
As we experience cooler weather and shorter days now is a good time to “Fall Back into Fitness.” Our Fit Zone Personal Trainers have some great offers to clients signing up with them during the month of September. Often times a trainer can serve not only as a great personal motivator but help you set up a fitness program designed with your goals in mind. Give us a call or stop in and check out the offers.
Basic Dog Obedience classes are being offered again. Our goal is to help families enjoy their canine companions by providing basic training techniques. Obedience training is the very best thing you can do for the relationship with your dog because it helps establish your dog’s place in the world and understand right from wrong.
Timbercrest Veterinary Service and Railsplitter Veterinary Wellness Center are teaming up with the Lincoln Park District and Mike Bieser to help teach basic training techniques such as: leading on a leash, heel, sit, and stay. Mike is the owner of The Canine Training Institute and has trained police dogs for a number of years.

We are getting contacts and questions about some early fall programs as well. We will still offer Junior Railer Boys Basketball. Registration for that will begin in early October and close out early November. Trunk or Treat downtown with the Mayor will be on Saturday, October 26. Halloween FunFest is still on the docket and is scheduled for Wednesday, October 30 beginning at Symphony of Lincoln and concluding here at the Park District. More details on these events will be coming as the time draws closer.
