This year GFREC will be celebrating National Children’s Day with another special community skate on Friday, Nov. 22, from 1:45 to 3:30 p.m. There will be free skating and skate rentals, as well as glow sticks to make for a fun atmosphere.
The goal of National Children’s day is to improve child welfare worldwide, promote and celebrate children’s rights and promote togetherness and awareness amongst all children.
Free hot chocolate will be provide by the Grand Forks Arena Concession and free, healthy snacks donated by Buy-Low Foods will be available too. Mark your calendar and come out with your friends for some fun at the Jack.
Flipping from children to aging adults, it is important to be aware of our bodies and how we’re feeling each day. Wayne Hajdasz, from BC Emergency Health Services will be offering blood pressure clinics at the pool lobby on Nov. 12 and Nov. 15 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. He will be available to help you with other health questions you may have.
Finally, here’s a last remind to stock up on pool passes at the Grand Forks Aquatic Centre and save before the fees increase for 2020. Our pass sale is in affect from Nov. 1 to Dec 31.
