Part of the mandate of the Similkameen Recreation Commission is to help in the development of recreation in our area. This is done by awarding recreation development grants to assist various groups in the establishment of physical activities, enhancing qualifications of coaches or using the funds to leverage more grants.
The commission has awarded two grants for 2014 to the Similkameen swim club and the Kobau Park Recreation Committee. The swim club grant was awarded to purchase a lap top computer which is necessary for club administration, swim meet entries and to fund coaching certification. Kobau Park’s grant was to help install a Frisbee golf course.
Both grants will add to recreational activities for many people in our area.
