Boys and Girls Club gears up for summer

The first full school year for the new boys and girls club of Wolf Creek – Rimbey is completed and has been a huge success.

The first full school year for the new boys and girls club of Wolf Creek – Rimbey is completed and has been a huge success thanks, at least in part, to the great support from the community.

“We are extremely grateful for the support we have received from so many people in the community,” said Annette Peck, who is charge of the program in Rimbey.

Peck said any child registered for Terrific Tuesday can join in the fun for a free summer wind-up pizza party in the upper auditorium on June 16 from 3:10 to 5 p.m.

It promises to be great fun, she said.

“This will be our last session this school year before we launch into our summer day camp program beginning on June 30.”

The day cap program is for children ages six to 12 and activities include theme days, trips to the pool every Thursday, games at parks around town, sports, crafts, parties, contests and a potpourri of other great activities.

Program coordinator, Jolene Naismith will be joined by summer assistant Danny Buist again this year and they are planning to keep everyone busy.

The program runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will cost $10 per day.

Registration is on a first come-first serve basis and registrants may select individual days until a max- imum of 15 participants are registered.

For more info call 403-843-1066 or register through the recreation department at 403-843-3151 as soon as possible.

Space is limited, said Peck, so register early.

The mid-week mash-up is ongoing and will continue to offer free games, contests, sports, food, special guests and events throughout the summer.

This program, geared for teenagers is held Wednesdays from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

“It is a great way for this age group to stay in touch with old friends and make some new ones over the summer holidays,” said Peck.

More volunteers are always needed for this program and even helping out once a month would be greatly appreciated, she added.
