LCRD move affords after-school program
Shuman Center
The temporary office of LCRD, and the new after-school program will be in the Charles Shuman Center in James Brown Park.
An earlier than expected move for Liberty County Recreation Department administrative offices has led to new after-school care programs for elementary-age students.
The LCRD has temporarily moved into the Shuman Center at James Brown Park. And, according to LCRD Director Jimmy Martin, that move has allowed the staff to start the program for the 2007-08 school year.
He said registration is under way for the program, which is for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. The program will provide a safe and fun, after-school alternative to day care.
Daily activities will include transportation from school, as well as snacks, recreational activities, study time and more. The program will be offered at Shuman, a climate controlled facility with a large gymnasium and game rooms. The center provides access to an outdoor playground, walking trail and soccer and softball fields.
The cost is $45 per week with a limited number of slots available. Call the LCRD office at 876-5359 for more information.
Martin said a move was planned so the old administrative office in Stafford Park could be torn down and a new office constructed. But, he said, the old building was in desperate need of repair and the staff was forced to move earlier than expected when the central air unit system broke down.
All the phone numbers and fax lines remain the same.
