Clearwater keeping residents fits, healthy with free online classes

Clearwater has shifted its rec classes online, since COVID has nixed face-to-face classes for now.

It’s free to anyone, not just district residents, and covers fitness for all ages and energies, including chair yoga for seniors, Total Body “Konditioning” for cardio enthusiasts, even a short, daily inspirational talk.

It’s on the Clearwater Community Recreation and Healthy Living Program Facebook page and folks can participate in a live class or at a time that suits them.

Clearwater CAO Leslie Groulx says healthy living is a philosophy of council and they felt maintaining rec programs now is more important than ever to the community’s well-being.

I couldn’t agree more, another lovely example of “Working Together.”

Lending a hand in Kamloops’ economic recovery

I am pleased to be joining other Kamloops political, business and educational leaders as part of the Mayor’s Task Force in Economic Recovery and Renewal.

We will start meeting this month and work toward reopening the economy.

I am looking forward to working with other communities in our riding to brainstorm about positive business opportunities.
