Don't Be THAT Person

January 6, 2015

According to Forbes Magazine, only 8% of people actually fulfill their New Year’s Resolutions.  Sometimes the resolution is too lofty, too undefined, there isn’t enough support; there can be a myriad of reasons, not to mention excuses!


But Fredericksburg Parks & Rec doesn’t want you to be THAT person who has the greatest intentions of achieving those resolutions but then life get in the way and they just fall to the wayside.  We want to help you be in that 8% by giving you the support you need, the classes you need - everything!  For more details on the programs mentioned and more, visit our Winter 2015 online catalog!
