Class Info/Registration

The Parks and Rec Dept has started a new e-mail notification program.  It's an effort that we are making to improve communications with you on program offerings.  The benefits to this are twofold; you will receive program information in a timelier manner and will reduce the amount of flyers that would otherwise need to be printed.  If you have not received an e-mail with our program offerings and would like to, send an e-mail to with the word "Add" typed in the subject line from the e-mail account you would like to use.  We will make sure that you are added to the list.
