Please note: If the event is full, please email Nadine at firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on a waiting list. You will be notified when a space becomes available.
There will be prizes and pre-packaged snack packs available at all events.
During these times we must be diligent of our surroundings and be sure to following the guidelines set before us by the Province. As you will notice, we have limited the number of participants this year and informed everyone that registration is required. I will keep a waiting list in case someone cannot make the event and a spot opens up.
As you register, you will also notice an additional disclaimer this year that speaks to the pandemic. We will ask that you bring your covid-19 kit (mask and hand sanitizer). There will be some on-site, as well. Also, during the event we ask that you do your best to maintain physical distancing and respect one another's space.
Yes, the pandemic has altered our "normal" but it isn't going to stop us from being outside and enjoying all the beauty that we are so fortunate to have around us. We just have to remember to follow the guidelines, respect others, and be safe.
