Parks and Rec. to offer Zumba, Pilates classes, additional yoga class

SOLON– Solon Parks and Recreation will be offering a six-week ZUMBA and a six-week Pilates class starting in February. Both classes will be held on Tuesday evenings. Pilates will be from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and ZUMBA will be from 6:30-7:15 p.m.

Solon Invitational named for Hadenfeldt

Long time coach and teacher Ed Hadenfeldt was recognized for his tremendous commitment to the Solon Wrestling Club and the Solon Community School District Saturday when Activities Director Keith McSweeney announced the Solon Invitational wrestling tournament would be renamed the Ed Hadenfeldt Varsity Wrestling Invitational. Hadenfeldt has been a teacher and coach at Solon since 1978, and has been involved in the Solon Wrestling program ever since, McSweeney said, including organizing the Little Spartan Wrestling Club.

Snow in the window

Even if you got your fill of snow last week, stop at the library for a little more. Enjoy the snowy view of the newest display window, “Snow Bound– the Garden in Winter,” dedicated to Betty Croy and the Solon Garden Club. Toni Russo created a winter scene of the woods and in the garden. The idea is taken from the narrative poem, “Snowbound” by John Whittier. This window will be ready for viewing on Tuesday, Jan. 24.

Gardening books displayed

To accompany the display window, a display of gardening books has been arranged nearby. Through the year, the Solon Garden Club purchased and donated many editions covering all areas of lawn and garden, landscaping and plantings. Five new books recently arrived. The love of gardening will strike any age. To get your child or grandchild interested, pick up “Ultimate Step-by-Step Kids First Gardening Book.” This book is created with the five to 12 year age group in mind. Perfect for guiding one through a Scout merit badge or a first 4-H project, this book is delightful.

Jan. 19 early out

The early out activity for Thursday, Jan. 19, will be crafting thumbies and kazoos from 1 until 2 p.m. for all Solon students. Thumbies are little drawings made out of fingerprints. The kids will stamp their fingerprints on paper and then draw little designs like animals and faces out of the fingerprint. The kazoos will be made from cardboard paper rolls. No registration is required. Elementary age students participating need to be picked up by their parent or caregiver at 2 p.m.
The next movie will be on early out Thursday, Feb. 2, from 1 until 3 p.m.

Winter book sale Feb. 4

In addition to over 3,000 books, there will be over 50 puzzles (all $1 or less), a few board games, 20-plus cake pans (priced 50 cents-$1), and at least 100 stuffed animals (25-50 cents). If you are cleaning out after Christmas, we still have room for your donated books, DVDs, CDs and gift items.
