The welcome mat was out and you came! Thank you. You came to watch, try, have some fun, get a tour and enjoy a smoothie! Some played pooled, our blow up squash court was a hit. Pickleball was a hit too and some great demo fitness classes too place.

There was lots to see, do and enjoy. All were welcome and thanks to all that attended, our staff and volunteers and The Bruce 97.9.
