Check out what Our Place offers

Published 5:12pm Saturday, January 11, 2014

Do you ever feel like you get stuck in the same routine? It’s a new year and a time to get involved.

Our Place Recreation Center has reviewed our programs over the past year and we are noticing that the same people keep signing up for the same activities.

That is great because you have all made lasting friendships. Now this is the year to try something new, become active in activities you’ve maybe never experienced, and get involved.

Our Place offers a wide variety of opportunities that you should be sure to check out. And there is only more to come in 2014.

How to get involved:

•Once every two months (usually mid-month) sit down with your friends and review the VISIONS newsletter together. Make an activity out of it. Read through the entire newsletter, even sections that you normally skim over and with a highlighter, mark all the activities that look fun.

•Talk to your friends and sign up together.

•Try one new activity each month.

•Call The Arc and make suggestions for new activities that you would like to try or have always wanted to experience.

•Register immediately to get signed up for the programs of interest.

We look forward to seeing you all active in 2014.
