After 11 years as recreation director for the Town of Rimbey, Rick Kreklewich is moving on.

Kreklewich has accepted a position for the Town of Blackfalds as recreation and marketing co-ordinator.

During his time in Rimbey, Kreklewich was able to see the new outdoor swimming pool come to fruition and be part of a growing recreation department. He also was instrumental in expanding the town’s website.

“Working in Rimbey has been a great experience, but now I will be able to take that experience and move forward.”

Kreklewich plans to move to Blackfalds eventually with his wife, Sara and children, three-year-old Kailey and four-month-old Kenton.

However, Kreklewich, who is to begin his job this month, will commute in the interim.

“He put a lot of years into recreation here in Rimbey and he will be missed,” said Rimbey’s assistant chief executive officer, Melissa Beebe.
