Hello friends and supporters in the exciting world of active transportation,
*We have a special invitation for you! *You are cordially invited to celebrate our *AGM at the Forks at 6:30pm on Thursday September 27th. *
*Come meet some colleagues, join us for refreshments and stick around for little bike/hike to see an outdoor movie. * *All details here. http://www.winnipegtrails.ca/annual-general-meeting-2018/ *
This is a chance for us to share what we do and we would love to see you there. This AGM is particularly special for us because its our very first one as a standalone organization. As you may know, Winnipeg Trails has been active since 2003 and doing amazing things operating under the umbrella of our friends at Rivers West Red River Corridor. Last year, when Rivers West was dissolved, we were asked to continue as an incorporated non-profit . We now have our own volunteer board and have been up to some exciting new things ever since. Building on our last strategic plan, we've growing remarkably, enabling us to take on new activities, reach new areas and communities, build capacity for staff, and contribute valuable new research and ideas. Come see.
*OPTIONAL TRAIL COUNT:* Join us a little earlier that afternoon for a fun and meaningful group activity. During the afternoon rush hour, we'll do a little citizen science. Starting at ~3:30 we'll be meeting up at the Forks, fanning out to capture a moment in time on Winnipeg's trails. We'll be looking at trails and roads with bike lanes - counting people on bikes, pushing strollers, wheelchairs, skateboarding, jogging hikers and more! You may be surprised by what's out there. This helps gets us a baseline and builds a picture of the "other" kinds of transportation in Winnipeg. What's measured gets managed. We'd love to reward you with a *FREE BEER *at the AGM party for your trouble. If you'd like to count with us, let our coordinator, Colby Deighton, know by emailing email@example.com and give you a little info.
RSVPs appreciated. Email Coordinator@WinnipegTrails.ca.
