A New Beginning

On October 16, GBIFD will be turning a new page. After running our weekly indoor sessions from September to June at the Owen Sound Family Y for 5 years, we are moving the sessions to the Parish Hall of St. George's Anglican Church. We will be dancing on Mondays from 10:45am to 12:30pm. The drop-in sessions are free for all adult and senior residents as well as visitors of Grey Bruce.

In the past few years, we have enjoyed the occasional drop-ins of some Y members on our Friday afternoon sessions. It was fun to have the young swimmers from the Owen Sound Aquatic Club join us weekly for half an hour last academic; that was part of their dry land training. Unfortunately, the group could no longer meet at that time because of some circumstantial changes of individual members, and the venue at the Y was not available at the new time that works for the group. After putting our heads together, and making a few inquiries, we were welcomed with open arms by the St. George's Anglican Church, one of whose foci in recent years has been community involvement

We hope that the change in venue, time and admission(now free!) means people who are interested but were unable to join us in the past can now do so. Something else new is that the sessions are going to be "open practices", which means that people in the community are welcome to come and watch.
