With the introduction of a new team around the council table comes a renewed energy within the community. We are very proud and excited that Huntsville is host to several national and international events this season, such as, the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games Torch Relay in June, Ironman Muskoka in late August as well as the 2015 National Women’s Under 18 Hockey Championship in November. We continue to be committed to our phenomenal legacy of sports tourism but also hope to enhance our efforts towards arts and cultural tourism. As a new member of Huntsville’s Town Council and Chairperson of the Cultural and Recreational Promotion Committee, I am thrilled to share with you some of the new programs we have to offer such as Canoe Instruction for Youth and Adult, Youth Dodgeball and Adult Beginner Tennis. As you would expect we have a myriad of programs for residents of all ages and skill levels, so I encourage you to take part in a program within these pages that interests you or perhaps make this the year you try something completely new.
