October 2021 walk leader update
Greetings Walk leaders!
Evaluation continues

Thank you to those who have sent in your participant forms. If you haven’t, if you could please do so by October 20, that would be great.

The second part of the evaluation is to hear from you as leaders as to how things are going.  You will be sent one of two surveys depending on whether or not you have been leading a walk group. Please take a few minutes to complete it as this information is invaluable to us for improving the program. 
Thank you for your help!
Proof of vaccination required for all Recreation programs in Nova Scotia.
As you are probably aware, New Provincial COVID regulations require that participants and leaders/volunteers show proof of vaccinations in order to take part in recreation programs. If you are/will be leading a walk group and haven’t already done so, would you please email me a copy of your record? I will look at it, make note of it and delete it.

As for participants, we are asking them to show leaders their proof of vaccine and you can add a “V” next to participants’ names on attendance sheets. You only need to see this once and you DO NOT have to collect participants' records. Thank you for your attention to this.
NS Walk Leaders Facebook Group

If you are on Facebook, you can join our closed group just for Leaders. Please friend me (20+) Catherine Tetrault Droesbeck | Facebook and I will invite you to join the group. You can post stories, pics and ask questions of each other. It’s a great way to connect with other leaders around NS.
A Phone call might be better than email
We are discovering that some people who sign up to join a walk group do not use email very often. You may notice you email people, but don't hear back. If you have a chance to call potential members, it might be worth your time.
Next Leader Training

Monday, October 18th at 5:00 p.m. Please help promote the training. Members of your walk group might be interested in becoming a co-leader with you. Register Here
Flyers are available to help you promote your walk group
