Just the other day, I had to go over to the Hendrickson Park Community Center to take my youngest to the Bricks 4 Kidz program. LOVE this program. As I walked by the front desk, I noticed a flyer for an upcoming Martial Arts class for beginners. I grabbed the flyer below and will share the details with you shortly.
I appreciate that our Village is beginning to promote and offer more programs for our children, but I would love to see programs offered a bit later in the evenings to accommodate our working families. Starting a program at 5 p.m. isn’t possible for families who get OFF at 5 p.m. and/or live in city. How about offering the class on a Saturday morning or maybe one weekly 7 p.m. class? Just a thought.
I did a little research on nearby exercise programs that are family friendly. Here are a few that caught my eye.
