Enchanted trip

The first Pro D Day trip to The Enchanted Forest and the Last Spike had six attendees. The kids had a great day and provided tons of feedback about other places they would like to go to in the future.

The next trip will be Oct. 23, and details  will be released as soon as the trip is confirmed.

Seniors outing

Sept. 23 was our first seniors trip and it was a huge success, with 44 people attending. Fun was had by all, even with the cooler weather. There was lots of discussion about other trips, i.e. wine tours, the Revelstoke Railway Museum and pool.

Also being considered are trips to Halcyon Hot Springs in the spring, the Nutcracker in Vernon around Christmas and the casino.

“I assured them as long as they want to fill the bus, I will keep planning them,” said Jamie Sherlock, district recreation programmer.

Learn to skate

The first session of Learn to Skate started Sept. 25 and will run until Oct. 30. Two more six-week sessions begin Nov. 13 and Jan. 15, 2016. Learn to Skate is open to ages 3 to adults.

The Learn to Skate program runs Friday’s from 4 to 6 p.m. For more information, contact Jamie at the district office at 250-836-2477.


Halloween is fast approaching and plans are on the works for a family event to take place on Oct. 31, in the afternoon at Eagle River Secondary. Groups wanting to participate, whether it be a with a craft table or to fundraise, are welcome.

The focus will be on old-fashioned fun with costumes, bobbing for apples, a family dance and more. More details to come as they unfold.
