Week 7

Read on for what’s happening in Week Seven.

Drinking Water at Juniper
Potable water will not be available this week at the store while we await the arrival and installation of some new UV filters. The goal is to have the water taps turned back on for drinking by the weekend. In the meantime, fill your bottles at home to stay hydrated.

Contribute to the 2020 Islander
The Islander Team is already hard at work preparing for next year’s issue. Please send in your story ideas, poetry, recipes, artwork, or any content you would like to see considered for publication. We also would love to publish photos of life on Juniper Island. If you have photos of lessons, camp, paddling, the masquerade, socials, wing night, yoga, pets, square dancing, the ladies lunch, etc…we want to see them.

Please send all photos and content ideas to juniperislander2020@gmail.com

Regatta Wrap-Up
A big thank you to everyone who helped make the regatta a success! There was beautiful weather and so many competitors paddling and lining up to the start line. While the afternoon breeze made line up a little tricky, there was some great skill on display all day long.

If you have not yet claimed your trophy, please stop by the store to pick it up. Any unclaimed trophies will be tossed after two weeks.

Did you leave something on the docks on Regatta Monday? A lost and found bin has been started. It’s under the ASLC board next to the museum/library door.

Thanks to every competitor, supporter, and the crew of skilled volunteers under Jennifer Angelopoulos’ leadership who made Monday such a good day. These traditions only happen when the community comes together – so many thanks to all!

Daily Activities
Questions about programs? Need help with a registration? Jacquie is available to lend a hand onsite at Juniper Island during the mornings M-F or via e-mail programs@aslcmembers.ca.

We are into the last two weeks of programming which means some changes to the schedule. Arts and Crafts has ended for the summer, but will be back again next year! There is no Friday yoga this week, but all other classes are still a go for week 7.

Swim and Paddle
All swim and paddling classes are on this week and next.

Yoga and Fitness
There are only a couple of weeks left to try out the HIT Class! This body-weight strength class is 45-minutes followed by a 45-minute session of Vinyasa flow. Suitable to all levels and following a challenge by choice method, this great class is an excellent complement to your tennis, sailing, running, or swim training.
