How is everyone’s 2021 so far? Has it been fun, exciting, disappointing, or uncertain? January is the coldest month of the year, so make sure you keep warm and stay healthy.
In the last two weeks, we hosted a virtual Zumba fitness session with Michèlle from West Trek Social Club. It was nice to see everyone turn on their cameras and get some exercise! We look forward to seeing everyone at our future events!
