Dear Ujamaa Grandmas,

We would like to invite you to join us for this year’s Stride to Turn the Tide in Canmore.

We are planning a fairly informal Stride using our Canmore Seniors’ Association as a meeting and gathering point. Weather can be a real challenge in June so having such a place with comfortable facilities is important and parking is available.  We will gather about 1.15 PM in order to start walking along the Canmore paths and trails at 1.30.  It is our plan to send people out in small groups but wearing our Granny scarves and with a local Granny to “guide”.  We will then come back for Tea/coffee and a celebration cake (since it is the 10th Annual Stride) at 3.00 p.m.  We have set up a team fundraising page if any of your group would like to contribute.  To do so, click on Mountain Grannies and then donate and follow the instructions.
WHAT: Stride to Turn the Tide
WHEN: June 22, 1:15 PM – 3:00 PM or so
WHERE: Canmore Seniors’ Association, 600 9th Street, Canmore.

In order to plan for the event it would be helpful if you could let us know of the numbers planning to come closer to the time; by about June 15th. (email:

We do hope some of you will be able to make it.

Warm Regards,
Marilyn Wilson
