Young Riondel campers and swimmers held the ribbon to open the new dock in July.

New swimming dock opened at Riondel Park and Campground

Young swimmers held ribbon for cutting at Aug. 15 event...

Squealing, splashing, jumping, laughing, oohs and ahs were the sounds heard from the new swim dock area at the Riondel Park and Campground. Replacing the old swim dock with a new 14-by-14-foot dock from Graham Marine was much anticipated by those who watched the arrival and installation in mid-July.

Riondel Park and Campground held a special water ribbon cutting ceremony Aug. 15 at the campground beach.

Those in attendance were Riondel Parks, Recreation and Community Service Society members and community members, as well as regional District of Central Kootenay Area A director Garry Jackman.

Boris Kwasnycia was very instrumental in researching and recommending to the board this great addition to the campground beach, and he cut the ribbon, which was held by young local and camping swimmers.

Deberah Shears and Mary Donald from the Many Bays Community Band were on hand to serenade guests with music. Under smoky, gray skies all enjoyed a cool Dixie cup following the short ceremony.

An official announcement was made for a $750 donation, which will be forthcoming from Teck Resources Ltd., Trail Operations. These monies will be used for future weather protection screening for the North Bay Pavilion.
