Dads, kids swim free

Saturday is the seventh annual Free Father Involvement Network (FIN) Dad and Kid Community Swim.

What are you doing with your dad on Oct. 19?

Why not go for a swim and enjoy the afternoon with other kids and dads at the seventh annual Free Father Involvement Network (FIN) Dad and Kid Community Swim.

From 4:30 to 6 on the afternoon of Oct. 19 at the Comox Valley Aquatic Centre (377 Lerwick Street in Courtenay), ids and Dads of all ages are invited to come have fun together in the pool and enjoy a slice of pizza when you are done.

Each year at this time, hundreds of Comox Valley fathers and their children show up to spend the afternoon together, sliding, diving, splashing and playing in a celebration of Father Involvement.

It is a great chance for kids to meet new friends and dads to meet other dads — it turns out that guy who fixes your car also has two children the same age as yours, and you both live in the same neighbourhood!

The C.V. Father Involvement Network is a group of individuals and organizations promoting and supporting positive father involvement in the Comox Valley through building community support and creating “dad and child friendly” events and services.

Free public activities include: our annual FIN SWIM each fall, a Children’s Movie Night each spring, Father’s Day Kite Fly in June, and recreation nights throughout the year.

Visit our Facebook page — Comox Valley Father Involvement Network — for more information on upcoming events or contact Justin, FIN co-ordinator, at 250-334-2477 to be added to our e-mail list for updates.
