Folks, I just wanted to let you know that the City of Penticton is looking for you.

Folks, I just wanted to let you know that the City of Penticton is looking for you.

Do you have a passion for parks? Are you a dedicated person? The city says they need you. The fact that they have put forth this announcement should indicate that they do want a balanced sector of the community on the parks committee.

Their announcement reads:

Committee volunteers needed

Do you have a passion for parks and recreation? Would you like to be a part of a committee that will help shape the future of parks and recreation in our city?  The City of Penticton is looking for 11 dedicated volunteers for the Parks and Recreation Master Plan Steering Committee.

This committee will guide the parks and recreation master plan process; please see the Terms of Reference (TOR) for more information.  Please submit your completed application by Monday, Oct. 26 at noon to committees@penticton.ca.

This summer Penticton witnessed the fact that there are thousands of dedicated people in our community that have passion for our parks.

I hope that many of these folks will step forward and apply to help make and preserve our parks to be the best they can be. Remembering that it is the dedicated people on committees that shape our parks’ destiny. Application forms should be available online, or at city hall and should be submitted by Monday, Oct. 26 at noon.
