Police bear a hit at Family Gym
The RCMP Safety Bear and Constable Chris Sanchez visited the Family Gym last Wednesday at the downtown Community Centre.
They were welcomed with high-fives, dancing, and even a game of ring-a-round the rosie. The children’s eyes were as big as saucers as Safety Bear walked through the doors of the gym.
The children also received Positive Tickets from Const. Sanchez. The tickets, for free Cactus Cuts,” were donated by Boston Pizza.
Family Gym leader Uschi Hannelt has led this program for 20 years and it’s been a huge success, expanding from one day a week to four.
The Community Centre thanks Building Blocks and Family Place for sponsoring Monday Family Gym and Success by 6 for sponsoring Friday Family Gym, thus allowing both of these days to be free to families.
As well, last year the Daybreak Rotary Club donated $2,000 worth of new toys to the program.
