Hello and Good Sunshine To All,
NQTA's Gathering is tomorrow at 6 o'clock at OIC.
Please bring your ' delicious dishes and desserts' to share.
As most of you know NQTA has recently completed the Nates Swing Station #2 and extended exercise platform that will be permanently stationed at the new outdoor activities center at OIC.
In the unfolding process we have connected with OIC gym instructor Billy. Billy is a very enthusiastic young man that will be joining our fit trail developmental team as we design the upcoming 13 stations with a modern concept of body strengthening and stretching exercise physiology.
This Gathering will have Billy doing a live demo of the new Swing Station and unveiling of the extended exercise platform. We will also be unveiling the computer rendition of the proposed 13 stations and digital kiosk.
NOW of importance that we seek ALL input in this unfolding fit trail concept as this is a community project and should directly lead to the better health of our region.
I have always believed from the beginning that the uniqueness and success of this trail was based in having the OIC Fitness club as an anchor and meeting Lee, Amanda and Billy I see this as holding true!
As a special bonus as most of you also know about ongoing Freedom Chair Fundraising and we have been blown away by the response to this effort with close to $4,500 of the $6,000 raised in the last 3 weeks.
Personally I have been doing demos with this Freedom Chair and from age 94 and people with all levels of disabilities this chair truly lives up to its name.
So we will be returning these chairs that have been generously loaned to our friends at Grit and we will be also doing a live demo outside of these Freedom Chair and I have reached out to Andy Kingsley to show really what these chairs can do.
Last NQTA's event season of Red Apple Farm Freedom Chair, Miracle on the Millers and yesterday's Nate's Run Muddy Pond Laurel Loop Trail Grand Opening was a wonderful, educational time and thank you all personally for your help and guidance!
So come join us for a Swinging Good Time tomorrow afternoon.
Upward and Onward!
