Accessibility is at the forefront in the delivery of the Community In Motion Free classes and programs offered at the Espanola Regional Recreation Complex. "The grant money from the Province of Ontario is being put to good use to remove financial and physical barriers to being active and healthy," says Dianne Polden, Manager of Espanola Leisure Services.  "In addition, to offering free community classes and programs specific for youth & the 55+ market, we received funding to purchase a new mobile aquatic chair to augment the accessibility of our salt water pool."

Volunteers Deck the Boughs

Wednesday November 16, 2011

A volunteer contingent from the Espanola Horticulture Society decked the boughs with balls and bows as part of the annual winter hanging basket initiative.

Twelve volunteers laboured for a collective contribution of approximately 60 hours of volunteer work. Cynthia Townsend, CAO for The Town of Espanola recognizes the beautification value of the hanging basket initiative.  "Without such diligent and caring volunteers small municipalities such as ours would not necessarily have the resources to make such projects possible.  Though volunteer generosity and commitment is not easily measured it's useful to assign a monetary value to those contributions. The hours of work to prepare the baskets could be costed out at well over a thousand dollars."
