Neighbourhood Watch. The team has been hard at work getting signatures/sign ups from residents who support the program. We are now eligible for 2 additional signs which will be going up at entrances to the neighbourhood in the next few weeks. Contact ENW@avonmore.org to learn more about our neighbourhood watch initiative and to get involved. We need several volunteers (light commitment) to get signs for our neighbourhood!

Yoga. Fall Yoga starts on September 24th but why don't you join us for pre-session classes on September 10th & 17th with Emily ($7.00 drop-in fee). This is a chance to try out our classes if you’ve never been or a warm up for the fall session if you’ve missed yoga all summer.
