This March
*NEW* - The Thrivers Walking Group
We are pleased to announce the start of a Thrivers walking group! It will start in March of this year. With yoga and piliates on hiatus until fall, we still need to stay active! The group will meet to walk the track and go for coffee afterwards. It’s a great way to keep active indoors during this cold winter and in spring we can start walking outside! Please stay tune for further information and flyer to come out soon.
