***Steps to Connect is a recreation-based education program, delivered by trained facilitators. The program is intended to help people learn ways to connect to their community through recreation. In the Steps to Connect Program, participants will plan and coordinate a safe group activity that will take place during Session 2 of the 3-session program. Steps to Connect will help individuals rediscover what matters in their life and find out how recreation and social activities can help them live well with their condition.
**The goals of the program are to: Recognize personal assets that can be cultivated in/through recreation. Experience the potential of recreation for contributing to and connecting with others in the community. Discover ways to connect with one’s neighborhood and community. This program is FREE. We will be running 2 consecutive programs, Tuesday evenings or Saturday Mornings.

If your family is looking for a bit more of a hiking challenge, try the Chebogue Meadows Trail in Brooklyn.
Chebogue Meadows Wildlife Interpretive Trail is a 4.5km hike. The trail consists of various terrains such as wetlands, rough footpaths (rocky), boardwalks (some in rough condition), and look-offs.
The trail is marked with yellow and red tree markers. We recommend the buddy system because the trail itself lacks direction so a family hike with older kids is perfect.
That being said be mindful of your turns and stay on the path and you will end up where you started. (If you hit a dirt road, turn around and take the next right)
Don’t forget to wear orange this time of year and let us know in the comments how you enjoyed this trail!
Table tennis (Ping Pong) is on Wednesdays, at the Rotary Centre, Hebron Recreation Complex, 107 Cemetery Road.
We’ll be meeting every Wednesday from 7:00 to 9:00pm. We’re hoping to have a great season!
OPEN TO ALL! $3.00/per person
Please spread the word! Any questions, call Yarmouth Recreation 742-8868.
