FREE COMMUNITY EVENTS
THIS WEEK

CLEAN UP DAY

Residents can take advantage of free yard waste recycling from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Athletic Park on May 2nd.  Bring your grass clippings, leaves, twigs, and brush up to the parking lot of the baseball park.  No household junk, or oversized limbs, and all waste must be removed from containers.

FOOTGOLF AT THE PAR 30

Another free event being held on Saturday from noon to 6:00 pm is the opportunity to learn and play the game of Footgolf at the Chaska Par 30. Footgolf is played with a soccer ball along the rough of the course.  Regular tennis shoes can be worn, and in fact no cleats are allowed.  The rules are basically the same as golf.  Par 30 personnel will be available to help you get started and provide soccer balls and scoring devices. 
 

COMMUNITY CENTER

The first Monday of each month (on May 4th this month) Chaska resident families are admitted FREE and non-resident families receive one free admission with one paid admission. (Some rules apply.) The Community Center opens at 5:00 am and closes at 10:00 pm.
 

COMMUNITY CENTER

May 5, 2015 6:00 PM
The CCC Bike Club is a bike loving group of adults who love to ride. They meet at the Chaska Middle School East parking lot at 6 pm Tuesday evenings.  Routes will be predetermined, but are adjustable.  A liability waiver must be signed at check-in.  They are not a racing team. They do this for the love of biking and the exercise.  Don’t worry about riding fast. Helmets, protective eye wear and ID are required.  A water bottle, biking shorts, basic tools and a patch kit are recommended.  This is a road biking club, although you can ride your cruiser or mountain bike.  Come, join in the FREE fun!  Ride updates will be posted on CCC Fitness at Facebook.com.

The City of Chaska Fire Department is Looking to Recruit New Firefighters

 
The City of Chaska Fire Department is looking to recruit new paid-on-call firefighters for the year 2015!
Successful recruits become a part of the proud team of Chaska firefighters. Few part-time jobs afford the chance to help others, serve the community, and qualify for a pension, all while providing an essential public service.
Because the Chaska Fire Department provides a critical service to the community, it must take every precaution to select the best possible candidates who fulfill the following criteria:

  • Must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Be a high school graduate or equivalent.
  • Hold a valid State of Minnesota driver’s license to maintain active membership.
  • Must have a residence within ten minutes of the Chaska fire station.
  • Must be able to carry out his/her responsibilities and provide good communications in a calm, positive, and professional manner under emergency conditions.
  • Must successfully pass a thorough background check prior to being accepted.
  • Must successfully pass the Chaska Fire Department-sponsored stress test, pulmonary function test, physical exam, and psychological evaluation.

The Chaska Fire Department offers a paid training program for new recruits in order to receive a full understanding of basic firefighting techniques, as well as emergency medical response procedures for basic life-saving activities. Recruits are expected to complete Firefighter I & II courses within the first six months of acceptance, and Emergency Medical Responder/CPR within 12 months, comprising an initial training commitment of 200 hours. A weekly two-hour business/training meeting takes place every Monday evening. Firefighters are issued all necessary equipment, at no personal cost to the recruit.
For more information, please contact the Chaska Fire Chief, Tim Wiebe at 952-227-7457 or at Twiebe@chaskamn.com.  Applications should be submitted to the Chaska Fire Station at 285 Engler Boulevard, Chaska, Mn. 55318 by 4:30 pm on Friday May 22, 2015. Applications are available online at www.Chaskamn.com.
