The Bellamy Recreation Center has implemented new programs this summer and staff there are inviting residents from across Sampson County to come and be a part of the fun events they say are going on right here in Clinton.
We would love for everyone to enjoy those activities, said Jessica Newton with Clinton’s Recreation and Parks Department.
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 2 until 5 p.m., the Bellamy Recreation Center opens up the door for anyone who would like to play basketball. The cost is $3 a day for participants 18 years of age and older. Anyone 16 and below must be accompanied by an adult or a person 17 or older.
Have you been interested in living a healthy lifestyle but lack the knowledge or discipline to do so? Come join the Healthy Habits class offered every Monday at 9:30 a.m. In this class, Newton said participants will learn how to gradually change old habits and learn how to make new ones. Healthy eating and exercise will also be discussed.
