Annual Senior Holiday Party Highlights

Thanks to everyone who came out for the annual Senior Holiday Party. We had a lot of fun enjoying music, food and camaraderie. We even had our very own Santa!

Thanks to JenCare and Eon Health for being our partners and providing food and activities for our seniors. We loved having firefighters, police, city staff and our newest Commissioner, Kelly Walsh, attend the festivities.

The photos tell the story! Enjoy a lot more photos on our Active Living Facebook Page.

Move It Monday: The Monday Mile

monday mile

If you walk a regular Monday Mile, you’ll find that the same old route might get a little boring. It’s easy to walk a mile, but sometimes it’s difficult to stay motivated to walk everyday, especially when the temperatures cool! You’re likely to stay indoors if it’s dark and cold, like most winter months are. However, when you’re feeling uninspired, the best thing to do is challenge yourself! Get outside today and everyday! Here’s a list of things you can do to enhance your #MondayMile this week!
