Ramping Up for Some Fall Fun

Recently we held a Riddle Trail activity for New Town highlighting our wonderful trails. Did you notice the signs? There were riddles that had to be solved, easier on the front with harder riddles on the back of the sign for the older kids. You could pick up an answer sheet at the pool and after it was filled in, you could turn it in (virtually) for a gift card of your choice for any New Town business. It was a great way for kids to participate in a COVID safe activity while getting outside and enjoying our community! We had 12 participants with representation from each of the neighborhoods! Didn’t get in on the action? No worry, there will be more fun to come! Stay informed through the NTRA website, email reminders or on Facebook. 
Prior to COVID-19, we were able to gather for Noon Talks to learn something new while enjoying lunch and socializing with our neighbors. In our new safety focused world, we are still participating, but now through Zoom! Our most recent talk was with Officer McDowell from the James City County Police Department on Saturday, Aug. 29th. (See related Crier story.) Two other talks are being planned for later this year. Check the NTRA website calendar to find details as well as all Zoom IDs and passwords.  
Finally, we are happy to announce a much needed, COVID aware, outdoor event! Dust off your best costume and plan to participate by walking, riding or watching the Halloween parade on Saturday October 31 in the afternoon. Dogs, bicycles, unicycles, wagons, children, adults - all are welcome! Look for further information about the Halloween Parade on the NTRA Facebook page and the NTRA website. We want to give you time to plan so further details are coming soon...
