Annual New Year’s Eve free family swim and skate returns

 

 

The Comox Valley Regional District 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 5-8 p.m. on Dec. 31.

“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,” said the CVRD’s marketing specialist Robyn Butler.

“We always look forward to giving back to our community,” added Lynda Brocklehurst, owner of the Comox Valley Tim Hortons. “We hope members of our community will fit this into their New Year’s plans to kick off a very festive evening.”

Attendees can enjoy complimentary Timbits, hot chocolate and coffee, fresh from the Tim Hortons truck that will be parked in front of the sports centre. A number of fabulous door prizes will also be on offer. There will be limited skate rentals available so it’s recommended to arrive early. Also, donations to the Comox Valley Food Bank will be gratefully accepted.
