Do you love social media?? We are looking for 2 adults, 20 years or older. (Social media can be a lot for younger people and we’d rather not push any of our community of youth into spending more time surfing social media!)

Fei Gao has been doing a fantastic job feeding information and pictures to our Facebook community, so that account is great. Facebook, check!   https://www.facebook.com/SpeedSkatingNS  We don’t need anyone else for FB! 

However, our Twitter account has been dormant since June 30, 2020.   https://twitter.com/SpeedSk8NS

And our Instagram account has been quiet since November 5, 2022.   https://instagram.com/speedskatingns

Is anyone interested in taking the lead on our SSNS Twitter and/or Instagram account? 

It could be pretty simple. Just repost the stuff Fei has been sharing on Facebook!
