The New Glasgow Kinsmen have been "serving the community's greatest need" since 1943. The service club is well known in Pictou County for their baseball and power skating programs that have benefited thousands of children over the years. 

Active Pictou County is excited to support the New Glasgow Kinsmen Club as they expand their power skating program to include learn to sledge. It is a learn-to-skate program using sleds and picks/sticks instead of regular skates. Throughout the program the participants will learn how to propel themselves, keep themselves upright and perform turns and stops. The program will be fun and age-appropriate so participants improve body strength, stamina and self-esteem. 

The program will begin Sunday, October 25th at the Pictou County Wellness Centre from 5:15-5:45 pm for children ages 4-12 yrs old.
