Sup­port­ing well­ness in Cavendish

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

The 50-plub club in Cavendish was given thou­sands of rea­sons to cel­e­brate last month when area politi­cians dropped by to hand over grant money for pro­gram­ming and re­sources. Health Min­is­ter and Car­bon­ear-Har­bour Grace MHA Jerome Kennedy made a con­tri­bu­tion of $10,000 to al­low the club to ac­cess pro­grams that pro­mote a more healthy and ac­tive life­style. The grant is through the Age­Friendly New­found­land and Labrador Grants Pro­gram. Trin­ity-Bay de Verde MHA Char­lene John­son pre­sented a cheque for $1,000 for the pur­chase of healthy snacks for the ex­er­cise pro­gram held three times each week at the Cavendish Recre­ational Cen­tre. The May 20 event was fun-filled, with the politi­cians and their staff play­ing a friendly game of “rocks and rings” against a club team. Here are some scenes:
