Recreation Junction

Join us for an indoor session of pickleball starting Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Sixth Street Gym. Pickleball is a popular sport among seniors but is challenging enough for the competitive athlete. It is played with a large paddle, a whiffle ball, and a low net. All the equipment is provided. This program will only run if a minimum of six participants are registered for the session. If the minimum of six is met, others may drop in for $6/visit.

Registration for Coed Dodgeball League is now open, and the season will start Monday, Oct. 21. Teams of six will face off for 30 minutes of play time. This will be a 6-week season with a tournament at the end. Just remember if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!

We all have stories just waiting to be told. Learn how to get started in this two-session class on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and Oct. 15 taught by writer and teacher, Vicki Lindner.

Lindner’s unique writing exercises and discussion will help you explore old memories to help portray important characters (including yourself), shape your story, and create riveting scenes instead of summaries. Let Lindner help you focus on which events and chapters of your life may have helped shaped you and that others may find more compelling than you ever realized. Whether writing for cathartic release, or to immortalize an important part of your life, this class will get you started.

Short memoirs can be sent to participants via email on request, and a list of great book-length memoirs will be provided.
