Information Board



To run a good program, it is critical for everyone to sign up early! There are times that classes must be canceled because there are not enough registrants. This decision must be made by the deadline of the program so that those who may have signed up for the class may be notified. Please, register early and carefully note program deadlines.


In an effort to keep program fees as low as possible, minimum enrollment numbers have been established for all programs. Programs not meeting the minimum enrollment number by the registration deadline will be canceled.


Full payment is required at the time of registration. Payment accepted by cash, check or money order to the Town of Alton.


Because the decision to conduct a program is based on the enrollment at the first class, no refunds are guaranteed after the first meeting. Refunds will be issued if participants cancel before the activity begins minus a $5.00 processing fee. Please note it takes two weeks to process a refund. The Department does not confirm program registration, however, if a program is full or canceled you will be contacted.


On occasion, our staff may photograph or videotape participants in department programs/classes or at special events/facilities. These photos are for our use only and may be used in publications, brochures, video productions or on this web site.



Complete the registration form and mail it along with a check or money order (made payable to the Town of Alton) to: Alton Parks and Recreation, P.O. Box 659, Alton, NH 03809. For a return receipt please include a self-addressed envelope.
