Public service announcement

Residents can get in the holiday spirit this December with two holiday recreation events. The Annual Family Holiday Skate and Swim with Santa events are perfect for all ages and will get you and your family excited about the winter season.

Do something different for your holiday photos this year at Swim with Santa. Bring your bathing suit to Parkinson Recreation Centre Aquatic Area on Sunday, Dec. 8 from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. where Santa will be making a special appearance to take underwater photos. Photos are complimentary with the purchase of a swim admission and will be emailed to you.

Strap on some skates to join in on the fun at the Annual Family Holiday Skate on Sunday, Dec. 15 from 1:15 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. at Rutland Arena. Visitors can enjoy an afternoon of skating, face painting, card making and refreshments courtesy of the Rutland Arena Concession. There will also be a special visitor from the North Pole to skate with the children. Skate rentals will be available at the Rutland Arena, and helmets are required. While this is a free event, donations for the Central Okanagan Foodbank are greatly appreciated.
