The Ballantyne community is invited to join a group workout led by Sara’s YMCA instructors at the Ballantyne Bootcamp Series every Thursday, September 6 – October 18, 5:30 p.m., at Brixham Tent. Afterwards, stick around to enjoy OMB and samples of Kombucha from Queen B Booch.

5. Take advantage of a free, secure shredding opportunity.

6. Help provide food for those in need for this holiday season by donating to the Ballantyne Virtual Food Drive.
Help us fight hunger in our region by donating to the Ballantyne Virtual Food Drive benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina during the month of November. Ballantyne is encouraging monetary donations over physical donations because it allows Second Harvest Food Bank to deliver greater amounts of food and healthier options to our neighbors in need.
