President’s Message

By Mike Daniels, President, Board of Park Commissioners

Welcome to the Schaumburg Park District’s fall season of programs, events and activities, and the continuation

of our celebration of 50 years of community fun and recreation.

Gusts of cooler autumn air bring in exciting special events and programs for the whole family. From A Haunting in

the Valley and all the Halloween favorites to busy fitness centers and active indoor fields at the Sport Center, an

action-packed season is in store at the District!

The Park Foundation’s Links Technology Cup tees off Aug. 14 at Schaumburg Golf Club. Golfers will enjoy a

day of competition, lunch on the course from local restaurants with “Taste on the Tee,” delicious dinner from

Chandler’s Chophouse, Grille and Banquets, prizes, and the awarding of the coveted Links Cup to the day’s top

foursome. The event always sells out, so register today!

Fall is a wonderful time to take a stroll through Tribute Park at Volkening Lake. Autumn colors complement the

memorial pathway stones. Visit schaumburgparkfoundation.org to purchase a brick to honor a loved one, a

cherished memory, or other special occasion.

The District has a new way to stay connected on the go! ParkFun for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch is now

available on the App Store. This free application, designed and developed by Links Technology Solutions, Inc.,

connects users with timely information about park locations, field conditions, facilities and fitness opportunities.

Search ParkFun on the App Store, or visit www.parkfun.com/app. It’s a great resource! The Android app is in

development for release soon.

New programs are plentiful this season! Sensational Smoothies will teach little ones healthy eating. Rainbow

Adventure will have them searching for colors in nature at Spring Valley. For history buffs, Sausage Making

101 for adults will teach 1880s preservation methods. For those looking for a deeper connection, try Getting

Grounded: Yoga Techniques for Vibrant Living.

Returning favorites include the monthly TPH program for junior high students, FitQuest, senior trips, Barracuda

Swim Team and swim lessons.

Spring Valley celebrates 30 years of serving the community with a birthday celebration and concert at Merkle

Cabin on Sept. 14. The special events keep going with Autumn Harvest Festival on Oct. 6 and From Hog House

to Smokehouse on Nov. 3 at Volkening Heritage Farm. Both events are sponsored by Whole Foods Market in

Schaumburg.

Boo! Get ready for some fun frights! Costumed pups kick off the Halloween season Oct. 12 with tricks, an agility

course and costume contest at the Howl-O-Ween Pooch Parade. Family Pumpkin Carving returns Oct. 19 to

Bock. Try to carve the winning pumpkin this year! The Water Works will be filled with pumpkins Oct. 26 during

the annual favorite, Pumpkin Splash. Residents will deck their homes out in spooky ways for the Halloween

House Decorating Contest and Tour Oct. 28. The Halloween event of them all, Halloween Boonanza, turns the

Community Recreation Center and Safety Park into a carnival Oct. 31.

And the 50th Celebration continues. I’d like to congratulate the anniversary

community partners already recognized this year including the Schaumburg

Athletic Association in January; elected officials/committee commission members

in February; Schaumburg Community Consolidated School District 54, Township

High School District 211, Harper College and the home school community in

March; the Schaumburg Boomers Baseball team in April; the Schaumburg

Bicycle Club in May; and the Schaumburg Park Foundation in June. The monthly

recognitions will continue at Park Board meetings through 2013.

Have a healthy, lively and exciting fall! The holidays are just a snowflake away!

All Star Sports Instruction Programs

All Star Sports Instruction: Jr. T-Ball

T-Ball can be a boring game if taught the wrong way! The All Star approach

to baseball engages players of every skill level. The coaching technique

provides basic building blocks in a safe environment. Players will move

and learn even while in the dugout. Mechanics and hand-eye coordination

are the keys to early success. Players will be more confident in this active

class as they work on proper mechanics of catching, throwing, fielding,

baserunning and batting. This fun and exciting program prepares each

player for the next level, T-Ball and coach pitch leagues. The program is
