Parks and Recreation

The public is invited to view the O’Fallon Photo Club’s 2015 exhibit in the O’Fallon Cultural Arts Gallery at the Renaud Spirit Center (RSC), 2650 Tri Sports Circle, O’Fallon, Missouri 63368. The exhibit will continue through February 20.

The exhibit showcases recent work, including landscapes, portraits and innovative photography by the club’s membership, which includes professional and non-professional photographers. (For examples of members’ work, visit https://www.facebook.com/groups/302304209788812/.)


Improve your fitness level and learn the art of self-defense, too, with O’Fallon’s marital arts program. Based on Chung Do Kwan, the traditional Korean form of Tae Kwon Do, the style incorporates self-discipline and explosive movements for devastating power.

Sessions will start the first full week in January at the Renaud Spirit Center (RSC), 2650 Tri Sports Circle, O’Fallon 63368. Except for the Open House, which is free, the cost for each six-week course is $48 for O’Fallon residents and $54 for non-residents. Take your pick of courses meeting on Monday evenings, Thursday evenings or Saturday mornings. To register, visit www.renaudspiritcenter.com/martial-arts.


If your kids would like to chat one-on-one with Santa, sign them up for “Breakfast with Santa,” which will be held from 9 –10:30 a.m., or “Pizza with Santa,” from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Both programs will be held on Saturday, December 13, at O’Fallon’s Civic Annex (off Sonderen near the O’Fallon Municipal Centre), 410 East Elm Street 63366. The events include playing games and making crafts. Remember to bring a camera to catch those priceless holiday moments!

Be sure to register for either program by Friday, December 5; there's no registration at the gate. All family members (including adults) who wish to eat must register. The cost is $10 for O’Fallon residents and $12 for non-residents.


A new exhibit opening at the Cultural Arts Center Gallery in the Renaud Spirit Center features shibori-dyed fabric and colorful photographs created by Abi Creech. The gallery is located at 2650 Tri Sports Circle in O’Fallon, Missouri 63368. The artwork will remain on display through December 26.

Shibori is an ancient Japanese textile dyeing technique for creating patterns on cloth by binding, twisting, folding or stitching the fabric before dyeing it.


The RSC is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month, and we're taking a look back to see how it all got started!
