Huntsville’s recreation centre will have various activities for everyone on Monday, Feb. 18.
The town is encouraging everyone to come out and enjoy family swimming or skating, enjoy an outdoor-guided hike or try an indoor urban pole-walking clinic. There will also be a Family Gold Rush Challenge taking place as a team approach to family fun! Some activities require advance registration. Register at the summit centre.
The indoor urban poling clinic will be held from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Active Living Centre, which is to the rear of the summit centre. Cost is $11.30 per person and advanced registration is required.
