The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and Tim Hortons have been busy organizing some active fun on New Year’s Eve with the annual free family swim and skate at the CVRD’s sports centre from 5 to 8 p.m on Dec. 31.
“We hope folks will mark this festive event on their calendar as this event provides a lot of holiday fun,” said the CVRD’s manager of recreation services, Jennifer Zbinden. “Having Tim Hortons’ continued support of this event allows our residents to ring in the new year with friends and family in a healthy, active way.”
“We always look forward to giving back to our community,” added Lynda Brocklehurst, owner of the Comox Valley Tim Hortons. “And if people coming to this event want to help give back to those in need, we will be accepting non-perishable food items to give to the Comox Valley Food Bank.”
Magician Greg Ladret will be onsite to amaze family members of all ages with his magic and tricks. And as in previous years, participants can enjoy complimentary Timbits, hot chocolate and coffee, plus a number of fabulous door prizes.
New this year is a prize draw for a Tim Hortons mountain bike which the public can enter leading up to the event. Pick up a ballot at any local Tim Hortons store and bring it to either the CVRD’s sports or aquatic centre by the end of day Dec. 30. This draw will take place at the event on New Year’s Eve.
