What Adam Sandler Didn’t Know

Family TogetherBy Esther Apt

Too bad Adam Sandler didn’t live in Baltimore during the holiday season. If he had, I bet he wouldn’t have been so upset to be, “the only kid in town without a x-mas tree.” To quote his well-known Hanukah Song, here are some ideas to help make the season more…“fun-akkah!”

This Dec 25, nix the movies and Chinese food (or maybe just enjoy them later in the day).  From 1:00-4:00 p.m. the Rosenbloom Owings Mills JCC will be having their annual family event complete with games and entertainment for all ages. At Peace, Love & JCC, families can don their bellbottoms and love beads to have some 60’s style fun. The day will include plenty of arts and crafts projects, a slinky obstacle course, a moonbounce and a GIANT Twister game!

What about the rest of the week when the kids are off of school and you have to work?  Instead of spending their vacation time roaming the malls, teens in grades 6-8 can get a can get a taste of the JCC’s popular TNT summer program. “This is a great opportunity for kids to get in some community service hours while gaining leadership skills,” says Brad Kerxton, JCC Middle School Program Coordinator.

The first installment of TNT for a Day takes place on Wednesday, December 26 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Rosenbloom Owings Mills JCC. The morning will be spent working in the preschool and the afternoon will consist of fun group activities.

After all the fun is done, buckle down and resolve to be healthy this year. As we all know, ‘tis the season to make those New Year’s resolutions!
Both JCC’s are offering an eight-week Weight Loss Program from January 6 to March 1, 2013. There are four levels to choose from and the higher the level the more personalized attention and guidance you will get.

For example, if you take charge of your own weigh-ins and weekly measurements but want to receive weekly motivational emails, “On my Own” is the program  for you. For eight personal training sessions and a food journal review, pick the “Crown Me Champ” option.
