The annual Active Living Fair takes place Thursday, Sept. 3 at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre in conjunction with the Town’s open house. Thirty-five tables have been reserved for organizations and local businesses offering health, activity and awareness.
This year’s theme again is in our community, and allows anyone with programs impacting residents to participate.
The event runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and free babysitting is offered. This year’s event will once again include a free equipment swap as part of the event.
Melonie Dziwenka, FCSS/Community Program Coordinator said the event is a great opportunity for one-stop-shopping on registration, volunteer recruitment and just general awareness of what programs and activities are available in the community for residents to take part in.
“It gives new and existing residents the knowledge of who is in our community,” Dziwenka said. “Sometimes though we’ve been here a long time, we don’t always know the different groups,” she said. “For new members it gives them a chance to see who is behind the scenes for the organizations and what’s available for them.”
