Whether it’s a new activity for the kids (Rowing? Skating?) or a new hobby for you (Pickleball? Boxing?), fall is the ideal time to explore something new.
After all, as we head back to school and work after a long, sunny summer, this really is the true “new year”!
So, what new program or activity are you excited to try?
Nelson-area residents can check out a whole host of possibilities all in one place at the second annual Festival of Programs, Wednesday, Sept. 12. Curious what recreation, sport and cultural programs your community has to offer? Come see what piques your interest!
Even better, you can enjoy FREE public swimming, skating and use of the Complex gym while you’re at it.
Festival of Programs
Hosted at the Nelson & District Community Complex from 5 to 7 p.m., the event is a great way to discover not only what’s happening this fall at the community centre, but also in the community at large, explains recreation programmer Dayna Kanigan.
“We definitely have something for every member of the family,” Kanigan says. There’s a lot of fitness opportunities, both at the centre and in the community, but we have lots of other groups represented too, such as the Nelson Sea and Air Cadets, Girl Guides, the Early Childhood Advisory Council and Nelson Youth Action Network – more than 30 in all!”
Not only can you speak with program organizers, but you can also enjoy a wide variety of demonstrations. Find something you like? It’s easy to sign up, too!
An annual favourite – and it’s free
Building on last year’s inaugural event, centre staff were keen to bring everyone together again.
“Those who stopped by got to talk with the people responsible for the programs, ask questions – everyone had a great time. It was a great way to bring the community together.”
So bring the whole family to the Nelson and District Community Complex Sept. 12 and be inspired to try something new. To learn more, visit rdck.ca or contact Dayna Kanigan, firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-354-4386 ext. 5107. See you there!
