At Parks, Recreation and Community Education,
It’s About You
By Dolf Moon, Director PRCE
With crisp weather and leaves changing color winter is right around the corner. The PRCE fall brochure is out and has plenty of opportunities for you and your family. Skating activities will soon be starting at Burich Arena. Youth and Adult basketball signup is underway. There are many adult programs you may find appealing. And when the weather finally turns the indoor playground is open Monday thru Thursday mornings.
Maybe you will want to take advantage of the new features at the mountain biking terrain course located at Tartan Park. Or check out our park/trails information at www.ci.hutchinson.mn.us or try geocaching. You could also rent a kayak or canoe weekends at Masonic West River Park. Keep an eye on the Heart of Hutch activities by eating smart, moving naturally or connecting wholeheartedly. And check out the new Farmers Market located at the Historic Depot site.
The PRCE Department offers a wide variety of educational and recreational opportunities to district residents. The uniqueness of the program starts with you. If you have an interest and don’t see a program that meets your needs, let us know. We will try to arrange a program. If you have a skill you would like to share with others, give us a call. We are currently putting together the winter/ spring brochure
PRCE reaches out to the entire community whether you are a parent with a preschool child (Early Childhood Family Education), a student taking a program after school, participating in Middle School athletics, an adult in a class or league, a senior citizen dropping by our center there’s something for all ages. PRCE also provides Adult Basic Education opportunities. Whether you dropped out of high school, are looking for a new job or trying to receive your GED, we can help. If you’re looking to use a facility, a gym or the pool, we can help.
Parks, Recreation and Community Education understand that “community” extends from neighborhoods to the world. We are flexible enough to meet the needs of a fast-changing society. We can extend the reach of education and bring people together in a common purpose. We like getting people involved in our schools. We can become partners in addressing community needs. We do this by offering a scope of activities and services that evolve with new generations of people and technologies, making the community a learning center open for people of all ages.
Parks, Recreation and Community Education reaches out to be inclusive. Every day it proves that the community and the schools, working together, can be greater than the sum of their individual parts.
