Message From the program specialist

As we wrap up a busy and successful summer of camps, concerts and

programs, the Parks and Recreation Staff is gearing up for an exciting fall.

This past summer we posted our best numbers to date in our Summer Arts

Program. Many talented artists participated in programs ranging from

painting and crafts to guitar and drums. Our Summer Playground programs

at Moses Y, Parker Farms and Yalesville Schools entertained over 360 kids

each session. The future engineer in our youth, flocked to the very popular

Lego Fungineering Camp this past August. A combined 54 kids used their

creativity and imagination while creating Lego structures.

Another big accomplishment this summer was the completion of the Bertini

Park Rotary Ropes Course. This project was a collaborative effort between

the Parks and Recreation Department, Wallingford Board of Ed and the

Wallingford YMCA. The project was funded through a grant by The Rotary.

The Pond Hill 5th grade class where our successful test subjects on and the

presentation to members of the Rotary was on July 6th.

Our fall program guide is full of leisure benefits waiting for you and your

family to enjoy. We are pleased to announce a collaboration this fall with

the Board of Education in bringing back after school programs. This fall,

The World Language Academy will debut with classes focusing on Mandarin,

Italian and French. As a pilot, one location will be selected on each side of

town (east & west) to host the classes. Classes will be for elementary school

aged children. We are also collaborating with Moran Middle School in

providing several after school programs. Information is listed under the

Programs and Leisure and Activities for Youth Page.

We look forward to seeing you at the Parks and Recreation Department and

we wish you a happy and health fall season!

Sincerely,

Kenny Michaels

Science is finding more and more that singing is good for your physical, as well

as emotional health. Come sing with us, get happy and stay well! The

Wallingford Chorus seeks members of all voice types (especially tenors and

basses). Although group singing experience and the ability to read music are

helpful, they are not essential. It’s more important that you’re willing to learn

the music -- we’ll teach you what you need to know and help you however we

can. A commitment to weekly rehearsals is required. The chorus presents 2

concerts each year, one in early December and one in early May. Our repertoire

ranges from Mozart to show tunes. The chorus also participates in the annual

Wallingford Holiday Parade. This year we have a new director, Christopher

Hartel. The WC is a non auditioned chorus, but Chris will meet with you briefly

to ensure your placement in the proper section. The chorus is open to anyone

high school age and older. High School students can join as interns and receive

credit for community service. Participating in the WC is a great way to broaden

a students musical experience and to enhance a college application. Rehearsals

are held every Tuesday during the school year. beginning this year on September

6th. Rehearsals run from 7:30 - 9:30pm and are in the chorus room at Lyman

Hall High School on Pond Hill Road. Dues for adult members are $40 per

semester (fall & spring) for $75 for the full year. Student dues are only $20 as a

deposit on their music, which is refundable at the end of the semester. For further
