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 Information and prices listed in previous editions of Grinnell Recreation seasonal brochures are no longer in effect.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.

Grinnell Recreation Department programs and facilities are available to all citizens regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

Activities and programs scheduled for outdoors are dependent upon weather conditions. Announcements or cancellations regarding youth and adult programs (practices and/or games) will be aired on KGRN (AM 1410) radio station on the day of the event. Should sudden threatening weather conditions arise while a program is in progress, we ask that parents arrive to the program site as soon as possible.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Financial assistance is available to those who qualify. You may apply in person at the Grinnell Recreation Department, 927 4th Avenue.


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.
