News from City Hall, Kingston Springs: 01/12/13

The Kingston Springs Senior Citizens group at their Christmas party in December at the Activities Center.

Happy 2013 !

Spring soccer sign ups for ages 4 through 12 are continuing through January. There has been a problem with the website for retrieving a form, but that should be fixed now. You may also pick one up at City Hall in Kingston Springs or City Hall in Pegram.

The Annual Egg Hunt is Saturday, March 23rd at 10:00 a.m. in City Park (the one with the baseball field) in Kingston Springs. This is for ages 10 and under. There is no charge. There are lots of prizes and lots of eggs. Don’t miss this!

Senior Citizens (that’s 60 and older), we have now begun our new senior’s program in the new Activities Center in L.L. Burns Park. Being offered throughout the month: low impact exercise classes, afternoon movie, Bingo, monthly lunch, walking groups, rook and scrabble playing, video bowling, knitting/crocheting, craft class, blood pressure screenings, special events and more. As the weather warms up, there will be outdoor activities and special events for seniors. So come by and see what it is all about. Open to all aged 60 and over.

While we don’t like to think about it, at some point we will probably have another natural disaster. So far we have been lucky and have sustained only minor damage, compared to some other areas of the country. We have not had any injuries or deaths either. But being prepared is the key to fast and appropriate response. Right now city emergency workers are developing an even better emergency response plan. This plan also includes citizen volunteers for different types of functions. These could include traffic direction, food services, pet and animal rescue, safety checks on special needs citizens, chain saw work, etc. If you are interested in being a part of that plan, please call the Public Safety Department at 952-9885 and speak with Officer Vaughan or leave him a message.

Also starting on Monday, January 14th at the new Activities Center in L.L. Burns Park: Frostbite Bootcamp! Beat back those winter blues and get ready for spring with Inside/Out Fitness’ April Uluc who will be leading fat-blasting workouts that will get your endorphins pumping and your fat running for cover. Mon, Tues, & Thurs at 6:45 pm. Classes are $5 per person per class. Just show up with your yoga mat, water bottle, and a “can-do” attitude. You can contact April at or Brandy Miniat at for more information. This class is suitable for all ages, genders and fitness levels.

Slow down folks! Officers are writing too many tickets to people traveling at 15 to 20 miles per hour over the speed limit. Check your speed!
