Claret Hall is right around the corner from you, but you may not know what happens there. As part of our mission to enhance the quality of life for residents, the River Hill Community Association’s staff at Claret Hall work hard to bring you programs and events all year long.
In mid-September, Zumba classes began at Claret Hall four times per week. “Zumba Fitness is magic to me,” said Darlene
Mikolasko licensed Zumba instructor. “As soon as the first chord of music begins, I have a big smile on my face that lasts the entire hour. And so do my students!” See the article on page8 for more about Darlene and classes at Claret Hall.
Beginning in October, Piloxing, the latest Hollywood fitness craze will come to Claret Hall. Piloxing uniquely mixes Pilates and boxing into a fat torching and muscle sculpting workout guaranteed to whip you into shape. This class will be
offered by the Columbia Association and will be open to both CA Package Plan members and non-members. See page
