Children will get a chance to learn how to be a knight. The event is Nov. 2 from 10 a.m. to noon at City Hall. It is intended for ages 5-12.
The king needs squires to learn the skills and become a knight of his realm. The squires are assigned to the knights to go through the training. The knights will teach the code of chivalry -- the knights' code -- and medieval swordsmanship using padded swords. At the end, the squires are dubbed knights of the realm and go forth and live by the knights' code.
The knights' code includes: Being brave in battle, keeping promises, treating people in a courteous manner, being generous and kind, never lying or cheating, always respecting parents and teachers, and never using learned skills to hurt others.
The cost is $15 for all participants. Deadline for registration is Oct. 25. For more information, call 330-626-3802.
Leaf it to me
What do children know about leaves? Why are the leaves changing colors? The parks & recreation department is "leafing" it up to children to find out. The program is on Mondays from Oct. 7 to 21 at 5:45 p.m. at the City Park pavilion.
Each day, the participants will hike to find the brightest, most colorful leaves to use for their craft project. They will explore the city's beautiful parks and make leaf art each day. Cost is $5 for all participants.
Children should register early and not get "leafed" out. Deadline for registration is Sept. 30. For more information, call 330-626-3802.
