There’s a new website in town. Visit the new penderharbourchristmas.com for a listing of seasonal events in and around Pender Harbour, find dates, times and descriptions of the many fun Christmas events for all ages. You can also find information on these and all year-round events on the Pender Harbour Community Schools’ community calendar at pendercommunity.ca.
And now, some information from our friends at the Pender Harbour Aquatic and Fitness Centre (PHAFC), an important hub of our community and more than just a pool. The centre has many activities both in the pool and in the gym space as well. Yoga, pilates, salsa and swing dance, multi-sports, body/core, sports nutrition, twoonie-Tuesday swims, Sunday family swim and rehabilitative programs such as steady feet, adaptive yoga and healthy new start take place in the gym. In the pool, you can attend gentle waves, aquafit, happy hips and knees – and swim lessons for ages four months and older as it’s never too late to learn how to swim or improve your skills.
From Dec. 1-17 check out the PHAFC annual advent calendar activity with a new twist this year: “getting to know the community”. This year’s activities will get you out and about in the community as well as activities at PHAFC. Each day open the door and complete the activity to enter your name for the prize draw and there will be a bonus prize draw for those who complete the special activities. This event is part of the Pender Harbour Christmas happenings sponsored by the Pender Harbour & District Chamber of Commerce.
Some important holiday dates to note, PHAFC will be open for regular hours of operation during the holidays except for closing on Dec. 23-26 and Jan. 1. MYPASS drop in fitness programs are cancelled Dec. 23 – Jan. 7 and will resume Mon. Jan. 8.
Check out the winter/spring recreation guide in your mailboxes the week of Dec. 11 to see all there is to offer. Registration is open now so call the pool at 604-885-6866 or visit http://www.scrd.ca/Pender-Harbour-Aquatic–Fitness-Centre.
