  • 46. Naomi Nari Nam and Themistocles Leftheris 3rd place 2007 U.S. National Championship 6th place 2007 Four Continents Championship After attending a public session with her family at 5 years old, Naomi fell in love with the sport of figure skating. Coached by John Nicks, Jenni Meno and Todd Sand, Naomi competed as a singles skater for 13 years on the U.S. national team as a juvenile, novice, junior and senior. Her career highlights include her U.S. National Championships on the juvenile and novice levels. She also won the silver medal at the 1999 U.S. National Championships as a senior. Naomi switched to pairs skating in spring 2005 to skate with Themistocles Leftheris. In addition to skating pairs, Naomi coaches figure skating at the EastWest Ice Palace in Artesia, California. Naomi is also a student at Saddleback Community College and away from the rink and classroom, Naomi enjoys knitting, scrapbooking, dancing, attending concerts, hanging out with her friends and roommates. Themistocles (Themi) started skating after watching the 1994 Winter Olympics on television when he was 11 years old. He skated singles before focusing on pairs skating. His former partners include Melissa Ralph, Sarah Jo Damron-Brown, Jaqueline Jimenez, Nicole Hartunian and Julian Burns. He says the highlight of his pairs’ career is teaming up with Naomi Nari Nam. The highlight of his singles’ career is medaling at the Middle Atlantic Regional Championships after taking four years off from singles skating. In addition to skating pairs, Themi coaches at EastWest Ice Palace in Artesia, California. He is currently working on his communications degree at Long Beach Community College. Away from the ice and classroom, Themi enjoys “any physical activity.” Naomi and Themi had their first tryout in April 2005, two weeks after Naomi switched from singles to pairs skating. “I was really quite nervous during our first tryout. Because I had heard many great things about Themi, I wanted to skate well so he would want to skate with me,” Naomi said. After becoming partners that month, Naomi decided to leave her coaches of 10 years, to skate with Peter Oppegard, who coached Themi. Naomi and Themi train at EastWest Ice Palace in Artesia, California.

  • 71. Owens Center Volunteer of the Year Award and Bardezbanian-Olson Award An important part of creating new programs and facilities is recalling the successes and inevitable disappointments of the past, to use them as a guide into the future. Today’s success at Owens Center would not be possible without the significant contributions several important people have made to Owens and to skating through the years. Named for Rhodell E. Owens, former director of the Peoria Park District for 37 years, Owens Center was dedicated on October 4, 1980. Rhodell’s determination and leadership, along with the vision of the Park Board of Trustees, helped bring not only an ice rink, but a truly first class facility to Peoria. Owens is one of only a few ice rinks in downstate Illinois that boasts two full size ice surfaces. Each year the Owens Center Volunteer of the Year award honors extraordinary volunteer efforts in support of figure skating programs. The 2007 Owens Center Volunteer of the year is Joe Spears. The success of hockey in Peoria, a huge part of Owens programming, can be attributed to two men: Pete Bardezbanian and Mark Olson. Each year the Bardezbanian-Olson award is given for outstanding volunteer efforts in support of youth hockey programs at Owens Center. The 2007 recipient of the Bardezbanian-Olson award is Darwin McPherson. For all their exceptional efforts and determination, we say “thank you”.

  • 82. Summer Camp at the RiverPlex– We’ve Thought of It All! • Weather Concerns: When the weather’s hot, campers will enjoy swimming in the AquaPlex or playing in the 18,000 square foot, air-conditioned arena. When it’s not, we’ll be outside enjoying all the area has to offer. • The “Boredom Factor”: Campers will learn new activities each week and go on exciting field trips. From teambuilding and fitness to fine arts and science, the RiverPlex makes learning fun! • Convenience: Don’t drive your child to camp and then to swimming lessons! Campers may participate in AquaPlex swim lessons during camp hours (additional fee applies). • Timing: Sign up for the whole summer OR pick only the weeks you need. Camp runs for 12 weeks beginning May 29–that’s a week earlier than most camps! • Parents’ Schedules: Camp runs Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm, but Extended Care is available from 7:30- 9:00 am and 5:00-5:30 pm for an additional $18/week. • Your Wallet: A full week of camp is just $100 for RiverPlex members, $105 for residents and $110 for nonresidents. What’s more, there will be no additional fees for field trips. Get a quality camp experience for your 5-12 year old at a place you know & trust!
