A Message from Director James Smith


Summer has quickly come and gone and now it’s back to school time! 

The thought of going to school brings back many memories. To some it represents a fresh start or possibly a new beginning...to others it represents an opportunity to invest in yourself.

At LCPRT, we appreciate and value your participation in our programs. We understand that with each program, class and special event lies the opportunity to have a positive difference in someone’s life. We see it as an opportunity to make an investment.

We want to encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities that we have for you to invest in yourself. Opportunities to learn a new skill, to make healthier decisions, to build new relationships, and to discover more about you. Please take the time to browse through the brochure as I am sure you will find an activity or event that is right for you. 

As the largest provider of childcare in Louisa County, we take pride in our ability to inspire children to identify, develop, and reach their potential. Through homework and recreation time, arts & crafts, and character development, we also strive to make an investment in the lives of the children that are in our Before & After School Programs. 

I am very fortunate to have a phenomenal staff who works very hard to provide quality programming opportunities for the residents of Louisa County. Our programs, classes, and special events are designed around our commitment and desire to invest in our community.

This year, we will close out 2017 by celebrating 275 years of Louisa County. Louisa was officially founded on December 13th in 1742. We will recognize this momentous occasion on the courthouse lawn during our Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony and during our 23rd Annual Christmas Festival & Parade, this year appropriately themed, Celebrating 275 Years of Louisa History. 

We hope you enjoy this edition of the Leisure Times and we look forward, as always, to serving YOU and YOUR recreational needs.

Remember to invest in yourself with LCPRT.
