Parks & Rec offers cooking, cheerleading classes

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Parks and Recreation Department hopes to help kids and adults alike stay active and have healthy meals through its upcoming classes.

"Meal Planning Made Simple" is a one-day workshop for those interested in learning meal-planning tips and tricks, designed to revolutionize the way you prepare meals for your family, and it will be presented by the ladies from the popular blog site from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 29, at the Ken Baxter Community Center, located at 514 Delta Ave. in Marysville. This class promises to offer adults 18 years and older practical ways to plan out their menus, and save the most money, for an admission fee of $12.

The Ken Baxter Community Center will also serve as the site for Beginning Cheerleading classes, for ages 6-8 and 9-13, on Mondays from March 31 through April 28, with ages 6-8 meeting from 4:30-5:20 p.m. and ages 9-13 meeting from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Beginning cheerleaders will be able to learn cheer terminology, jumps, cheers, levels and a progression of skills.

The Jennings Park Barn, located at 6915 Armar Rd. in Marysville, will host a Japanese cooking workshop, as part of the "Cooking With Fumiko" series, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Friday, April 4. For a cost of $42, plus a $7 materials fee, students will learn how to make sukiyaki, which consists of beef, vegetables and other ingredients, seasoned in soy sauce, sugar and sake.
