Recreation survey underway…

Filed under: Kids zone,Recreation, Health and Fitness — Jocko @ 6:33 pm

Beginning August 28, 2008, the Pender Islands Recreation Commission is undertaking a Recreation Needs Assessment.  The purpose of the survey is to understand what recreational activities the community would like to partake in but are not already available.  We want to hear from everyone (part-time, full-time resident & visitors) and all ages.

The Pender Island Recreation Commission purchases recreation programs for the benefit of the members of the Pender Island community.  The Commission can support recreational activities and recreation equipment (e.g. soccer balls, movable skateboard ramps, uniforms, skates, room rentals for recreation programs, wages for programmers/instructors, operating supplies) but not capital equipment or facilities.

Every voice, comment and opinion counts, so if you have questions, need to get a copy of the survey, or just want to share your thoughts, please contact Monica Flexhaug at mononpender@cablelan.net.  More information can be obtained by visiting  CRD Pender Island Recreation
