Huntiey Parle's Day Camp Attends True Value Fitness Fun Day Huntley Park District's "Camp Laugh-A-Lot" Day Camp joined over 3,200 children from 38 cities in Illinois Wednesday, July 18 at 9:30 am. They converged in Lisle, Illinois Park District to participate in the True Value Fitness Fun Day. This is the largest children's fitness event in Illinois. The children were divided into five groups and rotated between five different activity areas: 1. nutrition bingo/maze tag 2. 1.2 mile running event 3. relays/moonwalk 4. health expo/dance 5. aerobics/human letter game The object of the program is three fold: to encourage children to make regular aerobic exercise a part of their lives; to provide children with a positive experience in improving their fitness levels; and to enable children to complete any Run To Fitness running event they choose to enter, at a pace that they can maintain safely and with confidence. True Value implemented this program last year and drew 50,000 participants through¬ out Chicago. This year, the program has been expanded to include outer areas with participation expected to increase to 150,000. The True Value Run to Fitness program also included an internship program for the students of the Steinmetz Academic Centre for Wellness and Sports Science. Jay Krauss Huntley Village Administrator It's a tough job. It's a new job. No one has ever done it before, so there's no pre¬ vious pattern. That's the job of City Administrator that Jay Krauss has taken on for Huntley. Huntley has been growing in recent years and the growth is going to continue. A lot of people in Huntley felt it was time for help. The job entails taking all the facts and all the opinions and coming up with the best overall outlook for Huntley. According to Jay, everyone sees things differently and you can't always please everyone but you do your best. He really likes the growth potential here in Huntley. It's one of the reasons he took the job. Jay feels Huntley is heading in the right direction. Though it's hard to come in in the middle of a project. Jay is bringing all his education and experience to work. Jay Krauss grew up in Oak Lawn, II. and graduated from Oak Lawn High School. He attended Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills for two years. After that he transfered to Northern Illinois University (NIU) in DeKalb where he earned a Bachelor of Arts. When the time came, he chose to major in public adminis¬ tration over law school. Part of their program includes on the job internship training which he did in Burr Ridge. After graduation Jay went to work for Carpentersville as Administrative Assistant to the Village Manager. He was their 2nd in command for about 2 1/2 years. That's when the newly created job of Huntley Village Adminstrator captured his attention and his enthusiasm. V^ ^^^^^^ ''Y'/ «fT^ Jay and his accountant wife of 6 years, Suzanne, still live in Carpentersville. They spend a lot of time working on remodeling their home. Not only is he learning a lot of new things (like painting, plumbing, etc), he really enjoys it. It's not always work though. They also enjoy fishing trips and other outdoor oriented activities. Jay has recently tried deer hunting; however, Suzanne hasn't joined him in this yet. They share the house with two dog, a Springer Spaniel named Maggie and "a mutt" named Dusty. Jay's very serious about his job. He's hard at work every day on solutions for the individual issues as they arise and on developing an overall, long-range plan. Look for our new Village Administrator and give him a warm Huntley "Welcome". Soccer League Registration: Registration for the Fall Soccer Season is Sat., Aug. 4 & 11.
