Free family swim, skate

Celebrate New Year's Eve with this year’s free family swim and skate at the CVRD's sports centre Dec. 31 from 5 to 8 p.m.

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and Tim Hortons have been busy organizing some active fun on New Year’s Eve with this year’s free family swim and skate at the CVRD’s sports centre Dec. 31 from 5 to 8 p.m.

“We’re really pleased to have Tim Hortons’ ongoing support to allow our residents to ring in the new year with friends and family in a healthy, active way,” said CVRD manager of recreation services Jennifer Zbinden. “We want to let the public know to mark it on their holiday calendar – you won’t want to miss it as it’s a lot of fun.”

“People really look forward to this popular family event,” added Lynda Brocklehurst, owner of the Comox Valley Tim Hortons. “And to give those in need something to be hopeful for, we will be accepting non-perishable food items in support of the Comox Valley Food Bank.”

As in previous years, participants can enjoy complimentary Timbits, hot chocolate and coffee, plus a number of door prizes. Magician Greg Ladret will amaze family members of all ages with his magic and tricks.

The CVRD sponsored an Everyone Welcome skate earlier this month. Santa Claus made his annual appearance.
