                                          PEOPLE IN ACTION
People in Action (PIA) is a community enrichment program that addresses the challenges faced by individu-
als with limited resources. PIA operates within Springfield gardens at the David G. Klim Learning and Rec-
reation Center. Our programs are designed to meet the needs of children and adults whose primary lan-
guage is something other than English. We strive to support academic growth and reduce student drop-out
rate. Our programs are very affordable and are open to anybody residing within the Town of DeWitt but
Springfield Garden’s residents receive priority.

                      Currently, we are offering the following programs:
                  Pre-School: Time: 10 am-1 pm, Monday-Friday, snack and lunch provided
Mission: The main objective is to socialize children and acquaint them with early childhood skills to better prepare
them for Kindergarten and life. We will sing songs, read together, make art projects, and go outside. Children will most
likely get dirty.
Age: Children must by 3 years old on or before December 1, 2011 (may be in an abbreviated program).
Children who will by 5 years old on or before December 1, 2011 should consider kindergarten.

Ditch the workout and join the PARTY! Join Zumba instructor Tammy Panzironi as she delivers a Zumba
class like no other. Zumba is a Latin inspired dance fitness class that incorporates Latin and International
music and dance movements. Zumba integrates basic Latin dance steps with arm movements and athletic
variations, as well as style technique and attitude. Dancers and non-dancers alike will lose themselves in this
party-like setting and actually forget that they’re working out while moving to explosive and passionate
Latin rhythms. This effective workout is like no other and will leave you wanting more and more. A hand
towel and water bottle are suggested, but proper footwear is a must! Please wear supportive footwear such
as dance shoes or sneakers that allow you to move comfortably around the room. Held Tuesdays and Thurs-
days, October 4 – December 15 (not 10/11, 11/24) from 6:45-7:45pm at Moses DeWitt Elementary.
