A Winter Fun Day, hosted by New Glasgow Recreation in partnership with the Ward 1 Community Centre, will be held at the Ward 1 Community Centre in New Glasgow on Saturday.
The Winter Fun Day will include a pancake breakfast, free snow shoe demonstrations, children show shoe races, children snow shoe biathlon as well as games and crafts to celebrate Canada’s presence in the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
“We wanted to provide an event for the community to come out and enjoy what winter has to offer and maybe try some new winter activities,” said New Glasgow’s Recreation Manager Norma MacLeod.
“With the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympic Games we also want to take this opportunity to get people excited and to celebrate our nation's participation as well as the spirit of excellence in winter sports," says MacLeod. "We are giving children the opportunity to make crafts to get them into the spirit of the Olympics. We will have some information on Sochi Russian which we hope will help people learn more about the host city as well as information to help the community enjoy Canada’s schedule and participation in the Winter Olympic Games.”
