Plymouth School District Community Education & Recreation will offer a variety of fitness, youth and general-interest courses during the first four months of 2018, a mix of returning favorites plus seven new opportunities.
A new registration process is being implemented, to give everyone an equal opportunity to register for classes.
Registration will open at 9 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 14. Online registration will open at that time, and in-person registrations will be accepted beginning then. Registration forms that are mailed or dropped off before then will be opened in random order beginning at 9 a.m. Dec. 14.
Also please note that the Community Ed & Rec office will be open two days during Winter Break: from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 27 and Thursday, Dec. 28. You also can register online at any time, and also leave registration forms in the mailbox on the door of Room C110 on the north end of Plymouth High School, 125 Highland Ave.
The next session, which will run from January through April, features numerous new opportunities:
- Body Pump™: This hour-long full-body workout targets each muscle group. Choose your challenge with light to moderate weights to maximize repetitions. Great music will help you give it your all until the finish.
- Artisan Sourdough Bread: Make the fermented bread of our grandparents with a live sourdough starter and hands-on mixing, kneading & flavoring. Sample a variety of loaves, and enjoy a complimentary bowl of homemade soup. Leave with four loaves at various stages in the bread-making process, one starter of sourdough, and step-by-step instructions.
- Yogurt, Kefir, Piima and Soft Cheese Making: Join veteran home cheesemaker Linda Conroy to make and sample yogurt, Kefir, cultured cream, and cultured butter. After transforming milk into these cultured products, learn to transform them into soft spreadable cheese. Participants will taste samples, and leave with recipes and a culture to get started at home.
- Soothe the Inflammation Fire: Dr. Dan Francis of Francis Chiropractic will explain which foods and supplements help reduce inflammation in the body and which habits increase inflammation.
