Message from MTCA President
Let me begin by saying I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas season and didn’t run into any trouble with all the snow that hit us over the holiday. And I would like to wish you and your family a Happy New Year. And in the immortal words of John Lennon, “Let’s hope it’s a good one”.
On that note, I want to let you know that the MTCA is organizing January Neighbourhood Walks this year on Wednesday (Jan 4, 2023) nights starting at 6:30pm, and running through January (on 4,11,18, 25). This is something new for the MTCA and we hope you will join us, rain or snow. (This is a pilot project and of course there is no cost.) So, bring a flashlight or headlamp, if you have one, and meet us at the hut in Horner Park – 1715 Kisber Avenue. We will walk for about an hour on various routes each week. These will be easy-paced, social walks that everyone is welcome to join in.
If you have any questions please call/text 250-419-2143, or email: email@example.com
And, following on the success of our Meet and Greet events in Horner Park last year, we are starting early this year with an event planned for the 3rd Saturday of January. So, why not join us for some hot chocolate in Horner Park later this month and let us know what is on your mind.
