JCPRD's modified January through April catalog will be available after Nov. 13

Posted on October 29, 2020 at 10:34 AM by Becky Burnside

The newest issue of the My JCPRD Activities catalog will be online on Nov. 13 and in print form the week before Thanksgiving. Registration for classes in the catalog begins at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 16. 

The free publication features more than 500 programs from Preschool to 50 Plus offered between January and April. Program offerings range from arts and crafts to sports to nature activities and include leagues, classes, seminars, workshops, lunch and learns, and trips. The catalog spotlights a winter and early spring calendar full of special events, and includes spring break camps for youth. 

Like the September through December issue, the new catalog will have a smaller page count than issues of the past, and will again include only keywords, class titles, and ages.  Because of the continuing uncertainty of these times, the class title listings are meant to pique readers’ interest, and it is hoped that patrons will check the agency’s website at JCPRD.com for up-to-date details, changes, and additional programs. 

In this season’s printed piece, program titles are listed by age group with topic-based subheads, which mirrors the organization of the online listings. The online listings will include complete program descriptions, along with costs, locations, and dates. 

New for this season, an online “flipbook” of the printed publication will be fully linked and will allow users to easily access online listings for programs in the printed catalog.

A growing number of virtual programs in the January through April catalog will again give patrons opportunities to participate in some activities from the comfort of their home. Some of these programs are free, while others have a modest charge. Virtual programs are offered for youth, adult, and 50 plus enrichment & special interests; preschool and youth gymnastics; youth and 50 plus enrichment & special interests; youth, adult, and 50 plus fine & performing arts; adult heritage & history; and 50 plus fitness & health. 

In-person special events listed in the January through April issue will include: Christmas Tree Recycling, a Mah Jongg Tournament, Laura’s Legacy, the Amazing Family Race, 50 Plus Easter Egg Hunt, a seasonal 50 Plus Travel Show, Night at the Museum – Scout Edition, Trucks and Big Rigs for Kids, two trout stockings at two district lakes, the annual TimberRidge Adventure Center Open House, and many more.

The catalog also contains an article about the 50th anniversary of JCPRD’s 50 Plus department, which will be celebrating this milestone with programs throughout 2021.
  
The My JCPRD Activities catalog is mailed to past participants and are also available at Johnson County Library branches, and at district locations.

JCPRD’s 2021 Summer Camp Guide will be available online after Jan. 18, and in print after Jan. 25.
