Tai Chi In The Park

We had a great season 2023 with our signature summer event, Tai Chi In Mitchell Park, Saturdays, 9-10AM, led by Denise Gillies of East End Tai Chi. Sadly a very rainy fall resulted in some cancellations, but it was a successful year. We hope to see you back next summer! See more pictures here.
