 Heads up for people coming from Victoria (or using GPS): The street address is not exact for the park, that address will get you close enough to figure out where to go if you follow the signs. Also, if you can car pool that would be best as there sometimes is a shortage of parking in the area. The organizer is letting her ground crew know that a group of people are coming from VZF and to make sure you get where you need to be! See you tonight to party in the park!

 

Venue Change for Zumba Toning & Class Cancellation:

For people who do Thursday Toning with Rosie: The new location for the class  for July & August is the  Craigflower Room at the Esquimalt Rec Centre.  Class will return to Lampson Street School in the fall.

Unfortunately we could not find an alternate location for Claire’s Friday, July 10th classes. They are both cancelled this week, sorry for any inconvenience. But she will see you on the dance floor, Saturday 9:30am for Zumba® & 10:45am for Zumba® Gold at Royal Oak Women’s Institute.
