Give it a try

We would like to officially welcome Jesse Bourgeois as our interim Fitness Programmer while Tia is away.

We would like to officially welcome Jesse Bourgeois as our interim Fitness Programmer while Tia is away. Having worked a few summers for us, Jesse knows his way around the place and is a wealth of information on all things fitness and health-related. I heard him chuckling at his desk the other day and after querying why discovered a fitness equipment company we deal with had our name down on all correspondence and invoicing as Croissant & District Community Complex. What a great name! I think we should try and formalize it and have our concessionaire create a signature CDCC pastry.

Speaking of food, I think we should have done a staff weigh in before the Wee Greek Concession started here 6 months ago and compared it to today’s figures; I think we may be losing ground. Or maybe it’s just me. Or maybe by suggesting a staff weigh in, the HR department would request another private meeting with me. Any way you slice it, the fantastic food at the Wee Greek Concession will have you coming back for more plus they are always trying out new things to tantalize the taste buds and can handle all your in-house catering desires.

So what are you doing on the morning of June 21st? As part of the promotion of the 55+ BC Games, we are inviting you to the “Give It a Try” Event which is an opportunity to try some of the sports and activities that relate to the BC Games September 11 – 15th in Kimberley (http://www.55plusgames.ca ). The intent is to create more awareness for the 55+ Games and the activities it entails; the ones we are showcasing here are swimming, pickleball, card play (crib, bridge, and whist) and possibly slo-pitch. It all takes place at the Community Complex from 8:00 am until noon plus following, we will have a small social gathering from 12:00 till 1:00 with some snacks and refreshments for the participants and volunteers. This also provides an opportunity for any questions about the Summer Games or to the volunteers that are making these demonstrations/tryouts possible.

Stemming from this fun and social event, a perfect world will have you captivated so much that you enter the 55+Summer Games. Coming in a close second is that we have created enough of a spark that you consider joining one of the groups or programs offering these sports. Worst case scenario has you maybe meeting some new people and having a bit of fun for a morning – how bad is that? All we ask is that you drop by the front desk or call in to sign up at 250-428-7127 so we have an idea of how many people are attending.

So, to recap – a chance to learn a bit about swim strokes, turns and intro to aquafit, an opportunity to try the mysterious, yet burgeoning sport of pickleball, a prospective window into the timeless artistries of crib, bridge and whist and finally, an experiential journey into physics and physical activity through slo-pitch softball. It all sounds so interesting! See you here.
