June is Recreation Month!

Anytime is a great time to celebrate recreation in MODG, but June is a great kick off for the Summer as the warmer days approach and school comes to an end. Get out in your communities and celebrate all of the outdoor recreation opportunities that there are to do in our own backyards! This could be at an outdoor municipal facility, a walk, a hike on a local trail or riding your bike! Get out and move MODG! 

WHEREAS, in Guysborough, Nova Scotia, recreation practitioners are continually working to create and grow accessible local recreation and parks options, and providing opportunities to explore in our backyards; and

WHEREAS, participating in recreation helps to connect interpersonal relationships, support healthy, active lives across the lifespan, celebrate our diverse cultures while creating opportunities to learn, grow and self-reflect; and

WHEREAS, our parks, green spaces and trails provide places to be in nature, learn about local ecosystems, and continually respect, maintain, and preserve Mi'kma'ki where we live, work and play;  

Therefore, the Council of the Municipality of the District of Guysborough do hereby proclaim the month of June, 2021 to be “Recreation and Parks Month” in the Province of Nova Scotia acknowledging the year round benefits of Parks and Recreation in our communities.
