The full Night Hike program lasts about two hours and follows a 2-mile paved trail. Participants are welcome to stay with the group or return to the parking lot on their own. Activities include seasonal observations, sensory activities and the telling of the creation of Sodalis Nature Preserve.
There will be a strict limit of 20 participants and reservations must be made by calling Hannibal Parks & Recreation at 221-0154 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hannibal Parks & Recreation is offering Drop-In Pickleball on Tuesday evenings starting Nov. 10.
The Drop-In Pickleball program will be 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday evenings at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center through Dec. 8. Each participant must pay $3 per night.
Courts will be designated for competitive, intermediate and leisure players. Players are welcome to “drop in” and play games. Four players start on a court; when a game is complete, the winners will remain on the court and separate. The losers will go to the bench. Two new players from the bench will join the new game. This system allows people to play with new partners. More information about Drop-In Pickleball is available by calling 573-221-0154 or by visiting www.hannibalparks.org
