Spring is in the air! HOW TO REGISTER FOR PROGRAMS

See Registration Form Page 19 1. Register in person at the Ramara Centre or the Township Office in Brechin during business hours

We’ll all jump for joy once the last trace of snow is gone. It’s been a long, long cold and snowy winter. Who doesn’t want to hear the beautiful melodies of spring birds returning to our back yards or the trickling of spring runoff along the roadside? Maybe we’re a little ahead of ourselves – but not much. Spring will be here before we know it. We’ll soon crawl out of our winter hibernation right into a serious case of spring fever, eager to be more active and take on new challenges. The perfect antidote for that fever is the spring and summer recreational programming offered by Ramara Township. The recreation department engages experienced professionals to lead you through a wide variety of programs for children, youth and adults, including specialized programming for seniors. The cost of participating is very reasonable and the days and times will suit almost any schedule. Getting and staying fit is easy if you get involved in cardio boxing, yoga, pickleball, tai chi, teeball, golf clinics, strength conditioning and muscle
