It is evident by the amount of participation in sport and recreation in our community that physical activity is very important us. Continued planning is equally vital to ensure facilities, programs and community interests are maximized. To this end our local recreation commission is currently undergoing the Recreation Master Plan process — and they need your input.
You may have already been contacted to complete the phone survey or you may be invited to participate in the community and service provider meetings in June. Please offer your valuable input when asked, you will even be rewarded with the chance to win a prize for your trouble. Survey participants will have their names entered into a draw for one of five gift certificates valued at $200 each. Each gift certificate can be used for a pass, punch card or lessons at the NDCC.
For more information or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Eric Bientjes, NDCC manager at 250-354-4386 ext. 5108 or via email PRPlan@rdck.bc.ca
