Try something new this fall

Even with the warmer weather this past week, it won’t be long until we see cooler temperatures and leaves changing colors. Add to that shorter daylight hours and soon we’ll be bundled up and wishing it were summer again.

While you might be inclined to stay inside when this happens, instead take it as an opportunity to try out a new class or program this season—you may find a new hobby or passion! Aside from The Great Pumpkin Race and Fall Festival, Halloween Hoopla and Holiday Craft Bazaar, gather your family, friends and neighbors to listen to the “haunting sounds” of the Montgomery Village Community Band during their Halloween Concert, scheduled for 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 29 at Lake Marion Community Center, 8821 East Village Avenue.

Find your inner artist with another popular Wine & Paint class on Friday, Nov. 10, or the brand new Paints & Planks activity on Saturday, Oct. 7. Complete a personalized wooden sign, suitable for home display (and a really great holiday gift!) in one of two sessions scheduled that evening.
If you’re looking to get a jump (or maybe a really late start) on the popular New Year’s Resolution about fitness, there’s a number of active classes you can join. Put a team together for the fall Futsal league and see how your soccer skills match against other Village residents. Drop in to Yoga, Zumba, Pop Pilates, or Aerobics for a total body workout.

If dancing is more your style, check out Argentine Tango—either by yourself or with a partner—for fun and style that you can show off at the next wedding or reception you’re invited to! Maybe music is your thing, but dancing isn’t. If that’s the case, then try joining either the Montgomery Village Community Band or the Montgomery Village Blue Notes. Both community bands are always in need of new instrumentalists and play several concerts a year in the area. What better way is there to spend some free time, share your musical talents and promote your community?

Montgomery Village Foundation offers plenty more to do for both kids and seniors, from Taekwondo to a 5-day a week senior program. Don’t miss out by staying inside this fall. Get out and meet some new neighbors in one or more of these fantastic classes.
