Fall programs can help keep the whole family active

Happy fall everyone! I am challenged with the task of getting kids active in Penticton. It’s not just physically active but creatively, socially and even mentally. Our fall programs are in high gear and in many cases we can even fit a few more participants into classes that have just started.

Fall boasts full slate of programs

If you sell greeting cards, calendars, vacations or work in recreation, the day-to-day is always balanced by planning months ahead. So while most people have been looking forward to summer vacations my colleagues and I have been planning fall programs.

City gets moving for health

The World Health Organization initiated Move for Health Day nine years ago to bring awareness to the looming crisis of sedentary and inactive lifestyles. I have been writing a Move for Health Day Western column since 2002, and more than ever people spend time in front of computer screens or televisions.

Activities spring to life

Spring is officially here and this is a time of fresh beginnings, growth and blossoming. The same can be said for the potential growth of your children.

Programs to put some spring in your step

Spring is around the corner, and that means the first challenge for parents with school age children is: how do we keep the kids busy during the two weeks of spring break? Our recreation team has the answer. We have half-day and full-day programs for preschoolers and children 6-12 years.
