Jump-start Recreation Opportunities April 5

I'm back from vacation and looking out the window at an April Fool's day snowstorm! Perhaps you too are still half in winter and half in spring mode. There is no better time to consider all the possibilities! The Gaylord Hospital in Wallingford, Connecticut is once again offering their annual Day of Discovery on Tuesday, April 5, from 5:30 to 8pm. It is a fantastic bull's eye opportunity not to miss.

"Every sport! Every season! Everything you want to know! All in one place, one night! Slides! Videos! Equipment! Coaches! Athletes!" sings the poster for this free event. In one evening you'll have the opportunity to learn  about a wide variety of adaptive sports programs offered in southern New England. Meet the people involved, pick up program calendars, and sign up for programs! Activities include golfing, tennis, skiing, archery, sailing, kayaking, sled hockey, curling, adaptive cycling, horseback riding, water skiing and more.

You must register for this free event by calling 203-284-2772 or emailing Todd Munn of the Sports Association of Gaylord Hospital at For directions, visit The event will take place in Roncari Hall. Having attended an event organized by Todd Munn last summer, I have only the highest regard for the quality of the offerings of the Sports Association.

And if you are looking for a premiere place to take an accessible walk in New England or just inspiration for your vacation planning, I once again highly recommend the Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine, a place I just revisited this week. Read more about this refreshing mile length venture along the rocky coastline here. (The downtown Ogunquit entrance to Marginal Way is completely level by the way - I double checked this time!) Whether you like to travel or stay close to home, enjoy this transitional time to make new plans!
