Cookie Decorating Classes

June 19th – Best Dad Ever! (2pm – 4:30pm) Mother or dad class with child.  Children must be 7+ years old / Cost: TBD

Queen City Model Yacht Club

WHEN: We have sail days (practice races and tune-ups) on most Wednesdays and Sundays from 10:30AM to 12:30PM.  We have race days on most Saturdays from 10:30AM to 12:30PM.  Occasionally we will host intra-club and/or regional Regattas at our site too.

WHAT: You can sail any boat with us during sail days (Wednesdays and Sundays) but we race the Kyosho Seawind on race days (Saturdays and Regattas). The SeaWind Readyset comes with pre-painted ABS hull in a blue-white color scheme and rigged ready to assemble with installed electronics and a 2.4 Ghz radio. The SeaWind Readyset can be purchased at discounted prices on and other online stores. The quality of design and fittings continue to make the SeaWind an excellent fleet boat with enough performance potential to satisfy even the most discriminating skipper. The SeaWind COA has demonstrated a strong organization with active fleets in all AMYA Regions and an active annual program of Regional and National Championship Regattas.  The Class Rules tightly control the boat elements to ensure new skippers are not faced with a costly refit to be competitive while allowing minor modifications to rigging (materials and adjustment methods) to facilitate tuning and to the hatch cover to ensure watertight integrity.

Many of our members also have Dragon Force 95’s and EC-12 Class boats so whatever you may have, come join us.  If you do not have a boat and would like to try your hand or see if this is something you may like to try, we have club boats available for you to sail prior to making any investment.

If you are interested in having some fun and making new friends contact us via our website: or by email at: [email protected] or stop by!

Get Moving With Pineville Parks & Recreation

Why wait for summer to roll around when you can jump-start your health goals now? Spring is the perfect transitional season to help you shake off those winter blues and, well, spring clean your health with a renewed sense of invigoration and focus. Here’s a few of our favorite things about spring that aren’t just great for your physical health, but promoting mental and emotional wellness too!

Pineville Parks and Recreation offers citizens endless opportunities to achieve your fitness and wellness goals at our indoor/outdoor walking tracks, playgrounds, gym, fitness classes, athletic fields, and more. For more information on our health and fitness opportunities check out our website or call 704-889-2400.

PPR Health Tip: SPRING CLEAN YOUR NUTRITION – Spring is the perfect time for fruit and veggie lovers to stock up on fresh, local, in-season produce that is harder to come by in the colder months. Make exercise a habit – Adding exercise to your daily or weekly routine can have benefits far beyond physical fitness. Exercise is known to improve mood and decrease feelings of anxiety and depression. Set regular bedtimes and wake times – It is important for everyone to get seven-to-nine hours of sleep every day.

Attention Pineville Residents:  If you live within the city limits of Pineville and pay your taxes to Pineville, then you may use the Belle Johnston Community Center for FREE (fitness equipment, track, basketball court, and racquetball court).  But first you need to get your resident card made.  We will need proof of residency in the form of a photo ID with current address and a recent bill (ex. gas, electric, telephone.)
