Free New Year’s Eve family swim and skate

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and Tim Hortons have teamed up once again to provide some active fun on New Year's Eve

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and Tim Hortons have teamed up once again to provide some active fun on New Year’s Eve at the free family swim and skate at the CVRD’s sports centre from 6 to 9 p.m. on Dec. 31.

“We’re really pleased to have Tim Hortons onboard again this year to help make this popular community event a possibility,” said the CVRD’s manager of recreation programs, Jennifer Zbinden. “Our partnership with them over the past eight years has allowed close to 6,500 residents enjoy a free fun night out at the CVRD’s sports centre.”

“This is our way of giving back to the community at the end of the year,” added Lynda Brocklehurst, owner of the Comox Valley Tim Hortons. “With the support of our dedicated volunteers we’re thrilled to carry on this memorable family tradition.”

As in previous years, participants can enjoy complimentary Timbits, hot chocolate and coffee, plus fabulous door prizes.  Breana Morgan from 97.3 The Eagle will also be on site to take dedications and requests as you splash and glide your way into 2013. Non-perishable items to support the Comox Valley Food Bank will be gratefully accepted – donors will receive a complimentary Tim Hortons china mug while quantities last.
