THE RIM OF THE WORLD RECREATION & PARK DISTRICT'S (ROWRPD) mission statement is "To help enrich and fulfill the lives of the citizens through the provision of facilities and programs that will provide and enhance creative, wholesome and imaginative leisure time living patterns." It's so true!!
The first time I became acquainted with ROWRPD was in the mid 90's after reading a little ad in the Mountain News Newspaper, "How to Get Published." The class would be held weekly for a number of weeks and taught by my mentor, Willma Gore. I had always loved writing and thought I'd give it a shot.
ROWRPD was established in 1985, transferring control of our local recreation facilities from the County of San Bernardino to an independent local district. Some of these include Arrowbear Park Ball Field, Twin Peaks Ball Field/Rotary Centennial Park, Firehouse Play Area, Mountain Communities Senior/Community Center (pic' to right), ROW Recreation and Park District Office (pic above-this is where my class was held) and MORE.
Another helpful program through ROWRPD is the CHILDCARE ACROSS THE MOUNTAIN program with locations from Crestline to Running Springs. Check their the link for prices.
Here is a sample of what is available:
"SPORTS" PROGRAMS FOR YOUTH include Basketball, Soccer, Football, Wrestling, Track and Field and Softball (for girls).
"RECREATION" PROGRAMS FOR YOUTH include: Acting/Drama, Karate and Gymnastics and MANY more!
"ADULT" PROGRAMS" include: English (as a second language), Tennis, Parenting, to name a FEW.
PRICES FOR THESE PROGRAMS CAN BE FOUND ON THE RIM OF THE WORLD RECREATION & PARK DISTRICT'S SITE.
My mentor and friend, Willma, has since retired to Sedona, AZ, but is still holding classes and teaching writer-lovers. I'm still working to craft my writing skills by, as you see here, blogging away...
