Comm Ed fall classes offered

Plymouth School District Community Education & Recreation is offering a new Dog Obedience sequel and another Tumbling mini-session, plus Friday Playgroup, Hiking Club, and Kayaking this fall.

Friday Playgroup is open to all ages. Kids can get the wiggles out at this parent-supervised group that will meet at City Park while the weather is wonderful and move indoors when it turns chilly. A brief activity will be provided, along with time for free play. Space is limited indoors, so be sure to register. Playgroup will meet from 9:30 to 11 a.m. the first, second and third Fridays of the month from Sept. 7 to Oct. 19 at City Park, and from Nov. 2 to Dec. 21 at the Plymouth Youth Center; fee is $10/family.

Hiking Club offers a weekly group hike in the Kettle Moraine Forest and along other trails in our area. The same hike will be offered each week at various times, beginning the week of Sept. 10. There is no fee, but you must register to receive the monthly hike schedule and you will need a state park sticker. Register by Aug. 31 and save $10 on the following classes:
