Happy Tuesday,

As we get closer to the beginning of 2016, it is a great time to start brainstorming new programs and activities for the upcoming year! My current blog focuses on five activities for adults, children, and families, as well as healthy concessions and vending opportunities. The ideas in my blog include: run/walk groups, outdoor classes for warmer months, bringing together the family, and healthy concessions options. For more information and ideas for program opportunities during 2016 please listen to our NCRPA 8 Program Ideas webinar from last January:

Please note our Wellness Webinars is taking a break for the month of December. Our January Wellness Webinar will be hosted by Greg Walker, Fletcher Parks and Recreation, and Mark Scott, owner of Fleet Fee Sports in Asheville. The webinar will focus on organizing a 5k run/walk in your own community, as well as discussing benefits of partnering with a corporate partner for a race. The webinar will take place onTuesday, January 12 at 1:00pm. To register please click the link:
