Volunteers needed for summer programs
Submitted By League of Volunteers
For the 33rd year, the League of Volunteers (LOV) will provide a FREE supervised summer recreation and lunch program for all Tri City youth ages 5-12. The 6-week program will be held July 8 through August 15, every Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm at Civic Center and Mayhews Landing Parks in Newark. Pre registration is required and begins June 4 through June 28th, Tuesday - Friday from 2 pm - 5 pm. Space is limited and is on a first come - first serve basis.
Recreation Leaders and Assistants are planning games, sports, small arts and crafts projects and more. Every week will be themed with lots of fun activities including visits from Kaiser Permanente's Educational Theater Kids Course, The First Tee-Tri Valley, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, "Ukes for Kids", Republic Services, Police and Fire departments and much more. Kids can participate in the American Heart Association/NFL-Raiders Play-60 program - take part as pirates, zombies & superheroes in a Live-Action "Battle for the Planet" and learn about healthy eating with the Great Donut Race and Wet-n-Wild Water Relay. This is just a small part of the plans for LOV's "Safe, Healthy & Confident Kids" Summer.
Also planned is an end of program all parks BBQ and pot luck combining the young people from both parks at Mayhews Landing for this special treat. LOV will provide daily nutritious breakfast snack and lunch meals to all registered children. A $10 registration fee is required. There is no other cost for the 6-week program.
Volunteers are needed to help the Park Leaders and Assistants. Must be 16 years of age or older. In addition, if you have a hobby or skill you would like to share with the kids and can volunteer a day to share that with the children - they really enjoy special guests. To register your child or to volunteer, call Sharon Slayton, Program Director/Development Director at (510) 793-5683. This program is a great opportunity to provide an exciting experience for the young people of Fremont, Newark and Union City. Best of all - its FREE!
