A Message from Mayor Graydon Smith

and the Members of the 2018 - 2022 Town Council

It is a great pleasure to extend to you and your family a warm invitation

to participate in the exciting and fresh line-up of 2019 - 2020 fall and

winter programs offered through the Bracebridge Recreation

Department. It is a great time of year, for all things new, as fall tends

to be a fresh start with children going back to school and adults getting

back on track with their fitness routines and recreational/sport

interests.

Some of the exciting, new programs lined up include: youth leadership

programs; nutrition workshops, ukulele courses, creative writing, and

we are offering a new spin on our physical activity programs. Some

of those programs include the popular youth Climb and Dine, Indoor

Trimmersion Training, Boot Camps, Geocaching and 5KM

Running for Youth.

This winter take the time to get outside and enjoy the many cross

country ski trails and snow shoe trails at the Bracebridge Resource

Management Centre, and enjoy the many activities offered through the

Town's Recreation Department.

Best wishes for an active and healthy fall and winter.
