No Yoga Tonight!

Sadly the furnace at the hall is not working and we have to cancel yoga with Serendipty tonight.

All going well the classes will resume this coming Monday at 5:30 pm.

Please check in here on Monday as we will post again.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

the Friendly Folks of the Athol Recretion Committee

Starting this Thursday yoga is back at the hall in Cherry Valley with Serendipity Yoga for all levels!

Jeff or Janice will be hosting yoga classes every Monday and Thursday from 5:30- 6:30 pm.

“My hope is that classes are relaxed and fun while also being focused and precise. I want to encourage students to move at their own pace and work slowly toward more challenging yoga poses”. -Jeff

​ “Leading classes where we play with poses and challenge our bodies to move in different ways to reawaken our muscles and increase our functional fitness. I look forward to seeing you on your mat and guiding you through your Yoga experience.” -Janice

Please bring your own matt, pillow etc.

All participants must show proof of double vaccination with government issued photo ID at each visit as per the Provincial Guidelines.

Cost $10\person.

The Athol Recreation Committee would also like to thank Carrie for providing yoga for many years and wish her all the best in the future.


Volunteer Opportunities:


We are looking for volunteers to help with the creation of props and decorations for the event.

We will be hosting craft hours at an art studio located at Camp Picton.
Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursday afternoon/evenings.
Please let us know what dates and times work for you to volunteer your crafting skills!

Set up installation dates: 28th & 29th.  At Macaulay Heritage Park.
This year we have 2 full days to work on decorating and preparing the site for our haunted walk.

Tear down / clean up October 31st night and November 1st morning.

We will need hands to help tear down the event the morning of November 1st.


This year we are doing a “haunted walk”, instead of a drive thru.  This means that we have to observe covid-saftey protocols when haunting this year.

For costumes, our theme this year is “CLASSIC HORROR” and the site is from the 1800s.  Keep this in mind when choosing your costume.  There is some flexibility of course.

If you are interested in volunteering please email terroratmacaulay@gmail.com

The Worldwide Christmas Eve Jingle is a simple idea that started with one woman, Mary Beggs-Reid in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, a small town in England and has since spread across the Earth.

On Christmas Eve, at 6 p.m. local time, families around the world will stand on their front steps and simply ring a bell for 2 minutes. Organizers are hoping that the sounds on that still winter night will travel all the way to the North Pole to help guide Santa on his way. But more than that, the sound will lift the hearts of those near and far who are doing their best to keep the Christmas spirit alive in these very challenging times.

The Athol Recreation Committee invites all members of our community to join in this event.

So find a bell and we look forward to hearing you on Christmas Eve at 6 pm.

Thank you to local resident Lesley Hadrill for getting the ball rolling on this initiative or should we say bell ringing?

Wishing all a safe and happy holiday season!
