Breeze Into Spring

Mar 26, 2014 04:56PM ● By Style
It’s time to get outside, be active and spring clean! With so many fun-filled programs, events and classes this month, getting some fresh air will be a breeze. First up, the Cameron Park Community Services District is sponsoring its annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 19, at Rasmussen Park beginning at 10 a.m.; ages 10 and under are welcome to participate.

Clean out unwanted junk from your garage, or unwanted clippings and tree trimmings; then bring the items to the Spring Community Cleanup Day, taking place Saturday, April 26, at Christa McAuliffe Park and Camerado Springs Middle School parking lot from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Cameron Park Fire Explorers will be on hand to help unload items, as well as Snowline Hospice (to take gently used clothing donations). Acceptable items include yard waste, trash, general recycling and E-waste. Please no commercial waste, oil, batteries, tires, rocks, dirt/concrete, large appliances or hazardous waste. On the same day, at the Community Center’s parking lot from 8 a.m. to noon, sell your treasures or hunt for new ones at the Swap Meet.

On Saturday, April 12, it will be a Dog Day Afternoon at the recently completed off-leash dog park located at Hacienda Park. Celebrate with the Cameron Park CSD and El Dorado Dog Owners Guild (EDDOG) at the park’s grand opening. Enjoy activities, learn dog park etiquette, and visit with an array of dog care vendors.

On Tuesday, April 8, don’t miss the monthly (and free!) Coffee, Tea and Friends program from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Social Room of the Community Center. This month’s topic, “Is it Possible to Have Ageless Joy?” will be presented by Bob Billingsley from the Mountain Democrat. After, from 1-3 p.m., New West Haven Assisted Living will present a game of bingo.

Registration is currently open for Instructional T-Ball for ages 4-7. This fun program will start Saturdays in May and is a perfect introduction to the game of baseball.

Get moving this month! Yoga, Zumba, tai chi, hula, ballroom dance and Bellyfit classes are now offered for adults; and the kids won’t want to miss hula and ballet. If music is what makes your toes tap, try a ukulele class. Cooking courses are also heating up, including “All About Appetizers” by Chef Susan, “Ultimate Chocolate Truffles” with Karen, or “Cooking with Kids” with Little Chefs World.

On May 3, the Spring Antique, Craft and Garden Show is coming to town. This indoor/outdoor show—featuring a variety of garden accessories, antiques and hand-made crafts specific for the spring season—is free and will include a wine tasting fund-raiser sponsored by EDDOG.
