June 14 is set to be an exciting day in Elmwood.
Hometown hero Clara Hughes will pedal to Clara Hughes Recreation Park (281 Henderson Hwy.) as part of festivities for Clara’s Big Ride. The day will begin at 11 a.m. with a yoga class presented by Moksha Kildonan and ending around 4 p.m. with a relaxing yoga class. Hughes is anticipated to arrive between 2:30 and 3 p.m., and the day will also include cycling safety sessions, bike races, trick bike riding performances, and art.
The day is Hughes’ 92nd of her 110-day bike ride around the country as she aims to reduce stigma around mental illness.
Just down the road, the 13th annual Happy Days on Henderson will take place at the Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute grounds (81 Henderson Hwy.) from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be a petting zoo, bouncers, face painting, hot dogs, and athletic activities for kids.
