“New & You” June is Recreation Month Contest

Following an amazing first year of “New & You” in 2020 – we’re bringing back this awesome contest once again for June of 2021!

Take time to celebrate June for Recreation month by trying something new! Whether it be an outdoor hike, walking your dog, learning a new skill at home, bike rides, camping in your back yard, building a bird house, gardening – Anything that you can think of that gets you active in your own way.

We are so excited for the return of our  “New & You” contest grand prize again this year! Sponsored by local business Saltwater Society Charters – the winner of our random draw from all entries will receive a private fishing charter or cruise for 6 guests! This grand prize is valued at over $800!


Thank you SO much to everyone who got outside to enjoy some recreational activities as a part of our “New & You” contest for Recreation Month!
Congratulations to our grand prize winner – KIM BYRNE 🙂 We hope you enjoy your private fishing trip with Saltwater Society Custom Charters!

We want to see you active this June – get creative and have fun! Make sure to get outside whenever you can for your activities.


Help us crown Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s as Canada’s Most Active Community in the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge – a national physical activity initiative that encourages Canadians to get active! The winning community will receive $100,000.

It is open to everyone and all minutes tracked on the app and website from June 1 – 30 count toward a community’s total score. After June 30, 50 finalist communities will be invited to submit an application explaining why they deserve to be Canada’s Most Active Community. At the conclusion of the challenge, one community will earn the top prize of $100,000 and title of being Canada’s most active. In addition to the national winner, there will also be prizing for the most active community in each province and territory.

Now, more than ever, physical activity and sport participation need to be prioritized to help Canadians stay healthy in mind, body, and community spirit. And the 2021 challenge will be extra fun as ParticipACTION celebrates its 50th anniversary!

Your New & You activities can help our Town win! Participate by downloading the (FREE) ParticipACTION app from Google Play or the App Store where you can track your activity and contribute to the challenge. Every move counts! #CommunityBetterChallenge:
