Bocce Ball

Calling all Bocce ball players or if you want to learn to play, we are playing Bocce Ball on Thursday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. outside at the Gordon Howard Centre. If it rains there will be no Bocce Ball. Come out and have some fun and meet some new people.

 

This activity starts on Wednesday, May 20, 2021.  We will be social distancing and there will be hand sanitizer for all.

Urban Poling

Curious about the walking pole workout?

Urban poling (also known as Nordic walking) – think cross-country skiing without the skis – has toning, calorie burning and posture benefits that have made it popular in Europe for decades and a new workout favorite around the world. The Centre received 10 sets of poles to use and we are offering free workshops on how to use them properly.  If you just want to go walking with the poles, I would like to get a group of walkers together for this activity.

 

If you are interested, please call the Centre at 204-785-2092 to register.
