We’ve had a changing of the guard on the Hampshire County Parks and Recreation Board. Longtime board member and former president Lyle Colebank has decided to step down from the board, effective July 1. Lyle was instrumental in guiding HCP&R through some very tough times the past few years.

He invested countless hours on a volunteer basis to make sure that events were scheduled, facilities were maintained and finances were monitored. We can never repay him for all he has done for HCP&R. We can only hope that our thanks and our sincere wishes for his success in whatever endeavor he enters next can in some small way express our gratitude for his service.

Lynn Arnold, a member of the Slanesville Ruritan who played a large part in the development of the beautiful athletic facility adjacent to Slanesville Elementary School, is our newest board member.

Lynn has a deep concern for the citizens of Hampshire County, especially our youth, and we welcome him and look forward to the new and unique perspective he brings to our board.

Mark your calendars for Monday, Aug. 5, because that’s the date when our next program is set to get under way. HCP&R is sponsoring a Zumba Fitness Program, which will meet on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6 until 7 at Expressions Dance Studio, which is located in the back of the Century 21 Building, next to the car wash.

Certified instructors Amy Delaplain and Kristen Whetzel will be the leaders for the classes. Cost will be $5 per session, or you may purchase five sessions in advance for the reduced price of $20.

This program provides an excellent opportunity to blend dance, aerobics, and just plain fun as you shake your way into shape. If you enjoy Walking To Be Fit, I know you’ll want to take that next salsa step up to Zumba Fitness.

Attention Golfers! Don’t forget about our next golf outing, which is coming up this Tuesday, July 30, with tee times set to get under way at 11 a.m. The outing affords Hampshire County golfers the opportunity to play one of the premiere courses in our area, the beautiful Highlands Golf Course at Fisher Mountain in Franklin.

And the price is just as exciting as the golf promises to be. You get 18 holes of golf with a cart, a sleeve of Titleist golf balls and lunch in the clubhouse either before or after the round for the incredible price of just $30. That’s a deal that you can hardly pass up.

Let us know at the office if you’re interested in joining us. You can call 304-822-7300 any weekday between 9 and 1, or you can reach me on my work cellphone at 304-359-0634.

But if you decide at the last minute that you’re not feeling well enough to go to work that day but are feeling well enough for a round of golf, just join us in Franklin at 11, and we’ll have a spot for you.
