#seewhyweloveit with Karen Brookins

Published on July 14, 2017

It’s time to register for the Amherst Cumberland Multisport, a program that runs from September to May and includes nine sports over nine months with only one registration!  

This initiative is available for children in grades primary and one and is made possible by the Town of Amherst, Municipality of the County of Cumberland and with the support of numerous community and provincial stakeholders, including Sport Nova Scotia. The 2017-18 Multisport program will lead us one step further in reaching our goal to be the most active, healthy community in Nova Scotia as well as well as build healthier community through sport, with a focus on being active for life. Check amherst.ca or email amherstrecreation@amherst.ca for more information.
At the end of this month, July 29 to be exact, the Lions Club in partnership with the Town of Amherst will host the official Lions Park dedication, community open house and opening of the park’s new tennis courts, all happening at the Hickman Street location. The festivities will run from 12:30-3pm where food, live music, activities and a whole lot of fun will happen to celebrate this milestone. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the event, show your support and #seehyweloveit.
In the near future the Town of Amherst will be holding a series of public meetings on the possibility of developing an off leash dog park in Amherst. Everyone’s input will be encouraged and welcomed as part of the process. Details on the meeting dates and locations will be announced in the near future, check the Town of Amherst Facebook page for updates. In the meantime you can email amherstrecreation@amherst.ca for more information.
Don’t miss out on tonight’s Family-First Movie “Moana” as part of the free summer events and programs put on by the ‘A’ team in Amherst.
