WHS Media Coordinator Nikki Walker teaches Zumba classes at Whiteville Parks & Rec, and is considering offering them for adults at the high school. WHS Senior Adairius Melton held a "Zumbathon" in the school gym Dec. 1, 2012 for the public and Walker coached about 60 dancers to start. We came in about halfway through and shot a few clips.
There may not be much on it now, but we soon hope to have all fitness events in Columbus County listed on the Official Columbus County Fitness Calendar, as we get in better and better shape!
We just finished the Yam Festival 5K in Tabor City, and here are the results
Murmuration - This is a beautiful little video taken (spontaneously, I believe) by two Irish women during a canoe paddle on a cold, dreary day.
The music is wonderful and the whole thing lifts my spirits every time I watch it. Be sure to click the "full screen" button and turn the music up.
I hope it will brighten your day.

Why is this woman smiling? Because she's competing in the 2012 state N.C. Senior Games in Cary. North Carolina has the largest senior games organization in the country, and a group of ambitious people are working to bring the games here.
If you would like to get in on the fun early, join us in a founders meeting at the Greater Whiteville Chamber of Commerce, October 16 at 2 p.m.
The games include a wide variety of sports, hobbies, (including spincasting, left) and performing arts, and more than 11,000 people age 55 and older participated throughout the state in 2010.
The state website offers loads of information, or visit the page on local games directly.
