2007 Annual Report - IPRA Agency Showcase Competition

  1. 1. 2006 annual report we are the elmhurst park district
  2. 2. what does it mean to be the elmhurst park district? W e are an agency with over 85 years of commitment to providing the community with the highest level of recreational opportunities. We are dedicated to working cooperatively with Elmhurst residents to better board of park commissioners understand and serve their recreational needs. We are continuously driven by a mission to create “lifetime enjoyment” for the enrichment of both Peter G. Goworowski Elmhurst residents and the community in which we live. Chris Healy While broad in scope, this is certainly an all-encompassing description of the Park District and what we represent on a larger scale. Yet, how is it that we achieve this “big picture?” The answer lies in the individual steps we take Mary E. Kies as an agency to get your feedback in an effort to provide the high level of service you have come to expect. Colette M. Kubiesa We are proud to present the Park District’s achievements during 2006, including the inception of the Adopt-A-Park program, the grand opening of Patricia Morissette-Moll the Fit 4 Life youth gym at Courts Plus, completion of a community-wide survey, and finalizing plans for the redevelopment of the Wilder Mansion. Norm Reinertsen We would like to thank you for your continued interest in the Park District’s programs and services. Carolyn Ubriaco Thank you, Elmhurst Park District

The gym features strength machines and interactive gaming stations, that when used together, increase cardiovascular fitness, improve strength, and enhance athletic performance by providing supplemental training for youth involved in sports. Through supervised fitness education and camaraderie with peers, Fit 4 Life helps children develop skills necessary to reduce health risks later in life, and helps promote a healthy lifestyle while having fun. Since opening, 178 youth have registered at Fit 4 Life.

NEDSRA had 3,735 youths attend events in the 2006-2007 service year. Whether social clubs, summer camps, sports skill development, horseback riding, or art classes, NEDSRA programs have a significant and important impact on the lives of these young individuals and their families. Lasting memories were created by individuals attending one of four summer day camps that were successfully implemented. A “Counselor in Training” program was also added for our older teens with cognitive delays to provide practical experience in job- readiness skills. NEDSRA hosted the annual Fall Formal, a special evening when our youths with physical disabilities were joined by others from neighboring SRAs for dinner and dancing. Children of all abilities enjoyed the therapeutic benefits of water.

Keeping strong and active is a goal of the adults with physical disabilities.
