Senior’s Fitness Pro Receives 35 Years of Service Award.
Annually, the YMCA holds a Strong Staff Event and honours their people with Service Awards. This year had 5, 10 and 30 year awards… and one with 35 years – Cia Tweel!
The YMCA President and CEO, Brian Posavad and COO, Lorrie Turnbull presented the 35 Years of Service Award and Cia’s acceptance speech thanked the crowd for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing YMCA community. She reflected on the joy she’s had and continues to have teaching the Elderobics/Forever Fit Group, every Friday at St. Andrew’s, continuously, over the past 35 years.
Cia started teaching Dance, Fitness and Senior’s Fitness classes for the YMCA on South Park Street in May 1984, after returning to Halifax following a successful professional Dance career with Le Groupe de La Place Royale in Ottawa.
The YMCA Strong Staff Event was held December 5th, 2019 at Pier 21 in Halifax, NS.
The St. Andrew’s Church Gym on Coburg Road is also the location for many YOGA with Cia! classes.
