Want to learn a new skill, or improve on one you already have? Would you like to get in better shape this winter? Are you hoping to make new friends and have more fun in 2013?

Then sign up for one of the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District’s winter classes, programs and activities. Registration begins Saturday, December 8, and classes start Jan. 7.

Class descriptions and schedules, along with registration instructions and forms, are in THPRD's winter/spring 2013 activities guide, which is also available in print at any THPRD center or the Administration Office (158th and Walker Road, Beaverton).

The printed guide is also available at Beaverton-area libraries, the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce, Beaverton City Hall, Washington County Visitors Association, and the Beaverton School District Administration Center.

Online and phone registration for winter term will be open to in-district residents starting at 8 a.m. on Dec. 8 and go until 6 p.m. that day. It will continue Dec. 9 from noon to 4 p.m. and Dec. 10-14 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Patrons registering by computer for the first time must establish an online account in advance by returning a completed residency information form to any THPRD center. Those registering by phone simply need to call 503/439-9400 starting Dec. 8 (after Dec. 14, call or visit any THPRD facility.)

Those registering should have class information, credit card or debit information (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or THPRD gift card), and a valid THPRD residency card. They can sign up only members of their immediate family. Questions can be directed in advance to 503/645-6433.

For residents living outside the Tualatin Hills district, registration will begin Friday, Dec. 14, at 8:30 a.m. Those who have paid an assessment fee ($74 quarterly) may register by Internet, phone, fax, mail or walk-in starting that day.
