The Active Elgin Coalition is pleased to announce the 2013 Active Elgin Guide will
be delivered to all homes in St. Thomas and Elgin County on Thursday, January 24,
This year the Active Elgin guide has even more sports, leisure and recreational
activities listed for people of all ages and abilities. There are a range of activities
such as; joining a sports team, taking an art class, walking programs, martial arts,
music and dance classes. The Active Elgin guide has something for everyone.
This year, plan to spend time outdoors exploring the various hiking trails that
weave through the local conservation areas in Elgin County. Being active and surrounded
by nature has health benefits and creates a sense of well-being. Walk, hike, run
or go cross country skiing and enjoy nature while gaining the health benefits of
being active. Check the Active Elgin Guide for more information on the various activities
and events offered by the Catfish Creek, Kettle Creek and Lower Thames Valley Conservation
The Active Elgin Coalition is committed to building healthy communities and to making
sports, leisure and recreational information easier to find. This year, Active Elgin
is launching a new survey to gauge our effectiveness and identify ways to improve
the website www.activeelgin.on.ca
and guide. Complete the survey today by going to this website for your chance to
