Adult Karate
We are excited to bring a new, adult karate class to Orange County Parks and Recreation to complement our existing children’s karate class.  This class is a traditional Okinawan martial arts class with an emphasis on personal defense training. Training includes grappling, weapons, and basic traditional Chinese medical theory. It will train students to utilize the body as an integrated unit to provide a reliable defense system for both large and small individuals. The Aldridge karate institute system has been in operation for over 30 years in the area. This class will be held on Wednesdays in the OES gym from 6:30-8:30pm.  The fee for this class will be $45, due each month that participation continues. PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED BEFORE ATTENDING.

Cigar Box Guitar Crafting Class
Offered through a partnership between Orange County Parks & Recreation and Art from the Bark Studio.  We will be building a 3 or 4 string electric cigar box guitar.  Materials provided, including a fretted neck, strings, cigar box, and electronic components. Tools provided during class.  It has to be easier to play a three string than a six string, right?... Well, let’s make one and find out!  Class will be held on March 23, 2019 at Art from the Bark Studio, located off of Route 20 in Rhoadesville, from 9am-4pm.  Participants should bring a lunch, none is provided.  The fee is $125 and you must preregister for the class through Orange County Parks & Recreation.  The deadline is March 1, 2019.  A $10 late fee will be added after this deadline, and no more than 8 participants will be admitted in the class.

Have you ever considered getting an assistance animal for yourself or for someone you know? Want to know more about different labels given to animals such as: service, therapy, emotional support, or working?  Learn what an assistance animal is and what the ADA has to say about it. We’ll discuss what it takes to have an assistance animal, the advantages and disadvantages of being a handler, and the joyful possibilities ownership entails. Instructor Susan Baccei is a long time Orange County resident and a former educator. She was   determined disabled in 2010 due to an acquired brain injury. Getting her service dog Blanket greatly improved her quality of life. With 20 years of animal training experience including therapy, working and service dogs, Susan combines her love of animals with education to help others. Pre-registration is required and the fee is $15.  The class will be held 6:30-8pm on April 23, 2019 in the Sedwick Building downstairs conference room.
