The fall Activity Guide offers choices of over 20 new classes and programs for area residents. For children and youth with a variety of interests the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center now offers: holiday gift making; “Who made the Gravy?” (Thanksgiving cooking class for 6-12 year olds); Mad Science (for your junior paleontologist);  Math Olympiad; Common Core writing and reading; violin for beginners; and Inferno self-defense (to help build confidence in young women 12-17), among others. For children and youth at the Onetta Harris Community Center in Belle Haven, new classes include pre-ballet (for ages 3-5); beginning jazz and hip-hop (ages 6-9); Zumba for children; and karate.

For adults, look for these new offerings at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center:  landscape painting (in partnership with the Pacific Art League); Up-cycling with knitting (how to combine knitting with other fabrics to create something new); TRX RIP circuit training;  TACTIX self-defense based fitness; and lunch time boot camp express (30 minutes from start to finish). The Menlo Park Senior Center is also featuring a new sewing class in addition to existing “Strong for Life” fitness and soul line dancing for fun!

All new programs and activities feature a "New" symbol next to the name. Check them out and sign up beginning Monday, Aug. 17!
