The Grand Opening for the Winona Community Centre will be Saturday, January 9th, 2016 from 11:30 to 1:30pm.   As you know the Centre is located on Winona Road at Hwy #8 and it is the Former Winona Public School.   The day starts with a ribbon cutting at 11:30 and then following by an open house drop in atmosphere where residents can tour the building and try out some of the new programs.

The Community has been waiting for a long time for this day and I’m really glad to see it all finally coming together.   I hope this building becomes a gathering place for all residents regardless of age, interest or activity level.  A wide variety of programs are available based on what the community wants to see.  To start with there will be programs such as exploring movements and sports for preschool (3-5yrs).  Children (6-8yrs) can try out basketball, floor hockey, soccer, sports blast fundamentals, fun with science and hip hop.  Our Youth (9-12yrs) will see basketball, dodgeball, floor hockey, soccer, fun with science and hip hop.  Boot camp, circuit training, yoga 1, yoga 2 and Zumba will be available for Adults (16+) and our Older Adults (55+) will have chair lift, circuit training and Zumba gold.   These listed programs are merely a starting point.  As residents visit the centre and share their feedback, more programs will be added based on community needs. It’s just the beginning, so let’s make this the best local community centre it can be and using it will do just that.

An additional service available at the Winona Community Centre is Ontario Early Years which will be providing free drop in programs and workshops for children and guardians.
