May 22 is Municipal Wellness Day and this year’s themes are dedicated to being active and practicing gratitude. It's important to recognize that everyone has been working extremely hard through the pandemic, while trying to deal with the tragic events that unfolded last month in Nova Scotia. We believe that municipal employees, senior leaders and council who have been trying their best to help their communities through these difficult times would be very appreciative of some kind of recognition.
To highlight May 22, the Wellness Program and Committee have created a schedule of events for employees, including yoga, cooking, nutrition and a trivia contest. The sessions are designed to boost employee morale in the workplace.
Leah Roop is a Yoga Instructor from Colchester County. She has provided us with a 30 minute yoga practice that guides you through a relaxation and stretching session. To view the recording you must first log in.

Nancy Miller has provided us with a pre-recorded cooking demonstration to show a quick and easy recipe that can be made during the pandemic.
