MEDINA – With rain in the forecast on Thursday, the signups for Medina’s Joint Recreation Summer program have been moved from Butts Park to the Wise  Intermediate School on Gwinn Street. The signups are from 5 to 7 p.m.

The summer parks and swim program will be starting July 5 and run through Aug. 12, a free program for children ages 6 to 12 in the Medina school district.

The parks program will be run at the Oak Orchard Elementary School campus with the pool program at the middle school.

The Village of Medina and towns of Ridgeway and Shelby all contribute to funding the program.

The parks program is for children ages 6 to 12. That program will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and until 3 p.m. on Fridays. Besides games, the program will include bowling, field trips, a carnival and other activities.

The swim program starts with a “mommy and me” class for children 6 months to age 2, classes for 3- and 4-year-olds, and then classes for levels 1 to 6. The full swim schedule will be available at registration.
