The Lemont Park District fall 2013 “Memory Maker Brochure” will drop in the mail in just a few short weeks.

Resident registration for online and walk-ins will begin Aug. 24. If you would like to drop off or fax us registrations, you may do so and they will be processed Aug. 26. Nonresident registration begins Aug. 31. The majority of fall programming will begin after Labor Day, which is the last full day that Centennial Pool will be open this season.

Beginning Aug. 12, Centennial Pool will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, but will continue regular 12 to 6 p.m. hours on the weekends. Thank you to all of our members and guests for such a great season!

Some of my favorite events will be happening this fall and early winter. Fall Fest will be Oct. 19 at Centennial Park from 4 to 7 p.m. Our Fall Into Family Fun event will be held Nov. 15 from 6 to 8 p.m. at The CORE. Both of the events are free and family orientated.

Also, back by popular demand will be our CORE Thanksgiving Day Food Drive and Open House. Enjoy a free open house when you bring in a nonperishable food item.

Our fifth annual Frigid 5K will be Dec. 8, beginning at 8 a.m. Break out those Santa hats and ugly Christmas sweaters for this festive race. After our holiday traditions, breakfast with Santa will be Dec. 15 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Centennial Building. This year’s theme will be “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

Carlene Dickman is the guest communications manager and outdoor pool admissions manager for the Lemont Park District.
