Fall Recreation Reporter Now Available

Comox Valley residents can look to their fall 2012 recreation reporter for information on hundreds of leisure programs and activities being offered from September through December.

The recreation reporter is delivered in the Tuesday, August 14th Comox Valley Echo and is available for pick up at regional and municipal recreation centres.  The guide includes a wide range of programs including art and culture, fitness and sports activities, skating and swimming lessons, programs for seniors, and persons with specific needs and much more.  There are also a number of community associations and partners featured in the guide so you can find out what is happening in your own neighbourhood.
 
The guide is a resource for recreation in the Comox Valley and residents are encouraged to take advantage of all the different activities being offered through the City of Courtenay, Town of Comox and the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD).  “Local recreation staff are eager to support participants in achieving their goals and committing to a healthier lifestyle by getting at least 30 – 60 minutes of activity every day,” said Darcy Walters, CVRD's senior manager of recreation facilities.  

To register for programs being offered through the City of Courtenay call the Lewis Centre at 250-338-5371 or the Filberg at 250-338-1000, for Comox Recreation programs call 250-339-2255, and for the CVRD's sports and aquatic centres call 250-334-9622.  Residents can also register in person at the specified local government recreation centre(s) offering the program.

The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area. The members of the regional district work collaboratively on services for the benefit of the diverse urban and rural areas of the Comox Valley.
