From the Sagebrush Neighbourhood Association courtesy of secretary Frank Dwyer:
The Sagebrush Neighbourhood association is marking the arrival of spring during the month of April by suggesting ‘Walk n Wave’ for our residents. We hope that will help combat isolation and get people moving (by walking, hiking, running or biking). Walk and Wave provides great opportunities for families to explore our many parks and trails.
President Carman-Anne Schulz and her board understand that this is a challenging and rapidly changing situation. We urge compliance with all public health directives. The Sagebrush Neighbourhood Association stretches from Petersen Creek park, eastward to about 13th avenue and from Columbia southward to the Trans Canada Highway. It includes about 900 households. The society, founded in 2011, has nearly 200 members.
Everyone needs to observe social proximity rules. They should strive to keep at least two metres apart and heed other directives. The month’s activities will culminate in our annual Petersen Park cleanup – tentatively set for April 25 (close to Earth Day) – where we still hope to stage a “walk, work and wave in the park” to do trail cleaning and get exercise – always a good prescription and especially in this testing time. Social distancing is vital, but we can be active while remaining mindful of our neighbours and the larger community.
