M EET ZACH Fall is fast approaching with the excitement of returning to school, the changing of leaves, and the shift to colder, cozier weather. As the Township of Ramara's new Chief Administrative Officer, I am excited to work on projects and initiatives that will help shape Ramara and meet our growing community's challenges and expectations. After a great summer with our camp staff and friends, our Recreation staff have eagerly planned in-person programming for all ages. With something for all ages and interests, you are bound to find an activity that's right for you. With the upcoming election fast approaching, I want to remind our community eligible to vote to get out and vote either online or by telephone from Octob er 13, 2022, to Octob er 24, 2022, at 8 p.m. If you want to cast a paper ballot in person, join us at the Ramara Centre on October 15 & October 16 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. and on October 19 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Lastly, I want to remind the community that our website is a key tool in providing information about our services, projects, key dates and initiatives. If you can't find the information you need, please call or email us, and we will happily respond within two business days. This fall, have fun exploring a new area in the Township or trying something new from this guide. Sincerely,

kjohnson@ramara.ca

Daw n Cox- Line Dancing I moved to the Ramara area in 2003 and started taking line dancing classes at the Ramara Centre in 2004. The dancing was great exercise and the group was so much fun I kept going. In 2016 our instructor felt it was time to retire and a good friend and I took over the classes. W hen she moved away in 2018 I continued teaching the classes at Ramara and in other areas in the vicinity. I enjoy meeting other line dancers and find the experience of teaching and dancing to be fun, healthy and very rewarding.
