Yoga Happy Hour in Cavalaire Square to Benefit New Port Richey Community Restoration Initiative
The City of New Port Richey’s Cultural Affairs Committee is sponsoring a free guided Yoga Happy Hour in Cavalaire Square 6:00 pm Tuesday, August 7. This event is free and open to the public; however donations will be accepted.
The Yoga hour will be led by Jackie Loudakis LMT, CYT from Flow Yoga. This event is free and open to the public; however donations will be accepted for the Community Restoration Initiative. Participants are encouraged to bring yoga mats, blankets, blocks or any other items they require and water.
The Community Restoration Initiative is intended to restore culturally vital areas of the City through a partnership between Cultural Affairs, the citizens of New Port Richey and the City’s Public Works Department. The inaugural project is the rehabilitation of Cavalaire Square which began July 21 when committee members and volunteers came together to clean out the planters, make minor repairs, plant trees and install shell mulch.
Built in 1998, Cavalaire Square was created to honor the relationship between New Port Richey and our sister city Cavalaire Sur Mer, France. Many citizens are not even aware of its existence. This project is intended to bring new life to the square so it can once again be a magnet for community gatherings.
The Cultural Affairs Committee is a group of community volunteers, appointed by City Council, to provide a voice for citizens who wish to see the arts and culture become an integral part of our city, provide a strong identity and strengthen our sense of community. This is accomplished by advising the City on cultural affairs and facilitating activities, events and education that aid in weaving the arts and culture into the fabric of our daily lives.
Those interested in becoming a committee member or volunteering to help with programs like the free movie series may do so by visiting www.DiscoverNPR.com for information and applications. Committee meetings are open to the public and occur the 3rd Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the board room at the Recreation & Aquatic Center, 6630 Van Buren Street, New Port Richey.
