Make free New Year’s Eve Swim and Skate part of your holiday plans

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and Tim Hortons have been busy organizing some active fun for New Year's Eve with the annual free Family Swim and Skate at the CVRD's Sports Centre from 5 to 8 p.m. on December 31, 2017.

“Make this free event part of your holiday plans to kick off a very festive evening,” said the CVRD's Manager of Recreation Services Susan Bullock. “We really appreciate Tim Hortons’ continued support of this event as this allows our residents to ring in the new year with friends and family in a healthy, active way. We would like to thank 97.3 The Eagle for helping spread the word as well.”

Celebrate the new year in a healthy, active way at the free Family Swim and Skate at the Sports Centre on New Year's Eve.

As in previous years, attendees can enjoy complimentary Timbits, hot chocolate and coffee, plus a number of fabulous door prizes. There will be limited skate rentals available so it’s recommended to arrive early. Also, donations to the Comox Valley Food Bank will be gratefully accepted.
