November News from NESA! 

Hello Friends and Members of the NESA Community! We hope you have all had an enjoyable October and are as excited for the new month ahead as we are! It is hard to believe that we are already past the halfway point of our Fall 2021 season - how great not to have had to stop and close mid-way like our previous reopening attempts! We could not have made it this far without our amazing members and their many efforts in keeping one another safe.
While the leaves continue to fall, the temperatures begin to drop and we are adding more layers to our wardrobe, some of you are planning travels south; if that includes you this year, we wish you safe and enjoyable adventures! For those of you planning to stay in Edmonton for the winter, know that the NESA team has already begun the planning for the Winter 2022 season. Whether you are looking to stay busy with exercises classes, learn a new hobby, or want to join in on a club where you share similar interests with others, we have got your needs covered. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the release of our next program guide. 
To make sure you are kept in the know about all things NESA, please visit our website to stay up to date!
