Calendar of Events
It is time to start thinking about the upcoming Fall and Winter seasons
by participating in one of the many leisure activities offered in this
brochure. We have added several new programs to our brochure and we are
always looking for new ideas.
The programs in this brochure are offered from September 2003 through
March 2004. Information and prices listed in previous editions of Grinnell
Recreation seasonal brochures are no longer in effect. Information and
prices are subject to change without prior notice.
The Grinnell Recreation Department reserves the right to photograph and
videotape all activities, events, classes and programs for publicity purposes.

DONATIONS FOR YOUTH
Recreational programs are created to build self-esteem, to increase healthy
activities, and to promote both individual and team success. Unfortunately,
not all children in the community have the monetary means to participate
in these extra-curricular activities. To assist these children, the Grinnell
Recreation Department requests and accepts donations of swim passes, program
fees or money to go toward such areas. To make your donation to the youth
of Grinnell, or to seek assistance for a child in your care, please stop
by our office or call 236-2620. In donating, you help the youth of Grinnell,
as well as increasing community involvement and family participation. Thank
you for your time and assistance in creating opportunities for others.
