FREE Pilates for National Pilates Day

Published

on

Did you know? NATIONAL PILATES DAY is next Saturday, May 4th! 

Bodymax Pilates is having an Open House from 11AM to 3PM.

They hope to see some new faces in the studio but perhaps to see some “old” faces too. If you’re accustomed to only coming for private sessions (or either type of class), perhaps you might want to stop in for the free mat class or experience the equipment for a little bit.

We’ll be offering 15-20 minute “mini sessions” on the equipment after class from 12PM to 3PM (on a first come, first serve basis).

Because sometimes feeling the movement is simply the way to best explain it 🙂

Summer Meals Program Coming to Gwinnett Parks

Published

on

A program to make sure children have access to healthy meals during summer break is coming to three Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation locations. The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners on May 7 approved a memorandum of understanding with the nonprofit Georgia Nutritional Services, Inc. to serve as the sponsor for the federal Summer Food Service Program at no cost to the County.

Where it will be offered

As the sponsor, GNSI will secure Meals for Kids to serve as the food vendor for the program. The meals program will be offered at:

  • Best Friend Park Gym, 6224 Jimmy Carter Blvd. in Norcross; Lilburn Activity Building, 788 Hillcrest Road in Lilburn;
  • Rhodes Jordan Park, 100 East Crogan St. in Lawrenceville.

What Age Group

The Summer Food Service Program will be available for children age 18 years and younger and those age 19 years and older who have a physical or mental disability. The program will provide a free daily meal and snack for summer camp attendees and will be open to the public as well.

The program will run weekdays June 3 through June 28 and July 8 through Aug. 2 (no service July 1-5).  Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and snack from 2:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

For a location to be eligible for the Summer Food Service Program, the site must be located in a Board of Education school cluster where more than 50 percent of its students receive free or reduced lunch.

District 4 Commissioner Marlene Fosque said as an added benefit, all three parks are in close proximity to a transit bus stop for easier access by participants. “I am proud of Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation for expanding its healthy lifestyle programming to include providing nutritious, accessible meals for children,” said Fosque.
