Get your jingle on and spread the Spirit of Yes: Yes to having fun and celebrating what you love. Yes to living life to the fullest.

Five Rivers MetroParks is taking applications and scheduling interviews for the 2020 MetroParks volunteer naturalist service learning classes. Volunteers will focus on natural history and the interpretive, or storytelling, aspects of conservation. Being a naturalist is a state of mind. Becoming a naturalist is a journey – a vocation that calls for the exercise of both artistic creativity and scientific discipline. Becoming a naturalist requires that you both teach and learn – providing opportunities to share your knowledge, interests and talents with others in a classroom without boundaries. Naturalists are individuals who find new and fun ways to help others realize the depth of their relationship with the natural world. This program introduction will allow you to discover program details, decide if this is the leadership opportunity for you, and get you started on the next steps to participate in this exciting program.
The run will start and finish on the Little Miami Trail right behind Yellow Springs Brewery. The 4 mile loops heads north to Jackson where we will turn left. The route then takes a left onto Polecat and proceeds back to the trail and finishes back at Yellow Springs Brewery! We will mark it before hand and put out cones with arrows so you know where to go!
Space Three, a boutique fitness studio, will open downtown at 39 South St. Clair Street on Saturday, November 9. The studio will offer nearly two dozen group fitness classes per week across three different formats: BootyBarre, SWERK dance cardio and TRX (Total Body Resistance Exercise).
“Space Three is about capturing this notion of our humanity that good things come in threes,” said Lindsey Deck, Space Three founder. “Mind, body and soul. Earth, wind and fire. Rock, paper and scissors. I want Space Three to be a third gathering place outside of home and work where people can breathe, sweat and stretch.”
“Space Three is open to everyone, regardless of their fitness,” Deck continued. “Whether it’s your first time working out or you’re a seasoned vet, you are welcome here. My goal for this space is that everyone will feel better when they leave than when they came in.”
During its grand opening on November 9, Space Three will host seven free classes beginning at 7 a.m. Classes are open to the public, and babysitting is available during classes. Santa Clara Juicery will be on-site offering juices, juice shots and protein bites from 8 a.m. to noon. A variety of class passes ranging from drop-in to annual memberships will be available for purchase at a 25% discount.
After its grand opening, Space Three’s class times will vary each day but provide downtown residents, students and employees with a variety of morning, mid-day and evening options throughout the week.
Babysitting is available on-site during some classes, and showers and locker rooms are available for use before and after class.
All proceeds from this race go to Honor Flight Dayton. The mission of Honor Flight Dayton is to take veterans of the WWII, Korean Era, and Vietnam Era wars to see their national memorials in Washington, DC.
