Introducing players to new games is the goal of a series of four programs being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District beginning in late January.
This program is called Learn to Play, and is basically a beginner’s guide to what are sure to be participants' new favorite games. Sessions are offered at the Meadowbrook Park Clubhouse (MBPC), 9101 Nall Ave., Prairie Village, and at the Matt Ross Community Center (MRCC), 8101 Marty, Overland Park.
Sessions in this series will include: Dominoes (course ID 28049) beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 27 at MBPC; Pinochle (course ID 28050) beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 3 at MRCC; Hand and Foot (course ID 28048) beginning at 10 a.m. on Feb. 4 at MBPC; and Cribbage (course ID 28702) beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 24 at MRCC.
To find these programs in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under enrichment & special interests. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “games.”
Each Learn to Play session will last two hours. The cost is $6 per person for Johnson County residents or $7 per person for nonresidents. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online at www.jcprd.com, click on “Register for Activities,” and complete a search for any of the course IDs listed above.
While JCPRD’s 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the 50 Plus Department at (913) 826-3030 for space availability.
The My JCPRD Activities catalog is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.
