    tomorrow." Aging is an inevitable part of life – and it takes a toll on the individual, as
    well as their support network. Aches and pains, memory loss and slips and falls can
    make getting older even more difficult. The good news? With the right amount of
    activity, it is possible to stay strong, maintain mobility and stay independent. Want to
    enjoy your ‘Golden Years’ by keeping your brain sharp and body strong?

    Program Schedules will be available at the Community Centre & Sportsplex on May 1st.
