Three sure signs of summer: 1) the scorching 30 degree + temperature on Monday (coincidentally the first official day of summer), 2) school lets out this week and 3) our amazing East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market on Thursdays from 3-7:00 p.m.
If you haven’t yet made it out to the market, this is the week to go! Here is a line-up of things to see and do:
- PlayFit for Kids: Oaks ‘n Acorns and CareerFit Mom are joining forces at the market! They’ll be running PlayFit activities for families including obstacle courses, parachute play, and games to get your heart pumping and happy endorphins flying! This activity kicks off at 4:30 p.m.
- Origin Wellness: Enjoy a complimentary chair massage and chat with a naturopathic doctor from Origin Wellness between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. Meet Karen Seymour, RMT and Sarah Grammaticos, ND, to discover how they can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
- DesignNook Crafts: Kids can join the talented team from DesignNook between 4:00 and 6:30 p.m. to create some crafts to officially kick-off summer!
And we be remiss if we didn’t mention the final showdown that is expected at the market this week. The Table Tennis for Tuition ping pong tournament, a fundraiser for a joint DECA and Scadding Court Community Centre student scholarship, wraps up this week. We have already awarded the first recipient of the scholarship to Chantelle. You can read more about her in a previous DECA Diaries post or come meet her in person at the tournament this week. The final match will be played around 6:00 p.m. and the fun continues until we’ve crowned our DECA champions. It’ll be a great night so come cheer on the finalists. Donations to the scholarship fund are also welcomed. Check out some of action shots of players over the weeks below courtesy of Stephen Caissie.
Finally, mark your calendar for next week as DECA celebrates PRIDE at the Market on June 30th. In addition to all the usual market fun, Silly Goose Kids will be leading a Pride-themed craft. Hope you can join us! Learn more about DECA Pride at https://deca.to/pride and watch for details in next week’s blog post.
See you at the market!
