The City of Welland’s recreation and culture department is ready to welcome the community back to programming, activities, and more as the fall session registration officially opens online on August 24 at 9 a.m.
Operating at reduced capacity and limited availability due to COVID-19 restrictions and regulations for the summer, many of the department’s activities and programs are returning to action this fall, including those centred around music, art, yoga, Zumba, pickleball, and much more.
“We’re excited to welcome back new and familiar faces to our programs and activities,” said Rob Axiak, director of community services. “Our participants can feel confident that they are returning to safe environment guided by our reopening plan and Provincial regulations.”
Given the uncertainty of COVID-19, fall programming is offered in three blocks, each lasting four to five weeks, allowing registrants the opportunity to try new programs and activities without a longer-term commitment. Fall blocks are as follows:
- Session 1: September 13 – October 10
- Session 2: October 18 – November 14
- Session 3: November 15 – December 19
The Welland Community Wellness Complex is currently open with controlled access, limited capacity, and scheduled time blocks. There is a set 15–30-minute break between programs for cleaning. Masks are mandatory in all common areas, and visitors must self-screen before entering the building.
