Happy New Year to our YRS families. The new series will be upon us before we know it!
In the mean time, YRS is promoting keeping active ALL winter long by getting outside and enjoying the beauty of our province. Hike NS has a free Winter Hike series that YRS will be promoting and we will also be organizing at least one hike ourselves. "Trek the Dingle" (~4 to 5km) will be Sunday February 2th at 2pm at the lower parking lot at Fleming Park. Track the distances hiked during the series and collect badges thru the the Hikers Challenge program.
