Message from the EAPRD Board
It is hard to believe a year has passed since the opening of this great facility. I know I speak for the EAPRD Board that we are so happy with enrollment of members for the Eaton Area Community Center. This multi purpose facility has been able to hold so many different events and provide a wide variety of classes for all ages. Fall will be upon us soon and even more opportunities will be available in your community center. Thank you for your continued support of the Eaton Area Parks and Recreation District and we look forward to what the future holds. Our Board Meetings are every 3rd Wednesday at 6:30 pm.

Message from EAPRD District Director, Byan Kentfield
A year in review. My tenure as District Director for the Eaton Area Park & Recreation District began on April 3, 2017. We hired a team to serve the public and provide to our facilities what they required by June 1. We opened the Eaton Area Community Center officially on July 9, 2017. In the 365 days since, the Eaton Area Park & Recreation District has sold over 4,500 memberships with 73,000-member visits. 15,500 have participated in group fitness classes, and 554 personal training sessions were completed. We have hosted 300 facility rentals (receptions, meetings, birthday parties) totaling more than 14,000 event attendees. 2,145 water aerobics participants, 837 group and private swim lessons conducted, 27 lifeguards trained and over 40,000 have taken advantage of their new aquatics facility. Youth athletics remain a staple with over 3,500 participants. 57 games and 12 youth and adult baseball or softball tournaments were hosted at the Eaton Area Athletic Complex Ballfields in 2018. We now provide youth dance, martial arts, art and painting classes, youth developmental leadership classes, and so much more. Almost 500 active adults (60+) have enjoyed healthy meals provided by Weld County and another 556 of all ages enjoyed the services of the Eaton 9Health Fair. In total, we have welcomed and provided safe services and amenities to over 100,000 individuals since grand opening.
What. A. Year!
What I truly consider as scratching the surface provided so much for so many. Now to move forward. To improve our processes, decrease any customer friction, and provide action. The numbers presented above are benchmarks and goals. Every decision made in years 2-5 can now be based upon clear numbers and our core values: trust, community, and opportunity. Thank you for your support. Thank you for justifying the Eaton Area Park & Recreation District. Thank you for recreating with us.
—Bryan Kentfield, EAPRD District Director
