Open house for fitness centre

Membership growing at 10-year-old Agassiz facility

It’s been 10 years since the opening of the Kent Fitness/ Activity Centre, and the District is inviting the public to celebrate the special anniversary.

The centre has become a popular hub for the community, combining fitness classes, a weight room, the Variety Play program and healthy living programs. Last year, there were 25,000 visits to the weight room and 10,000 people taking part in the many diverse fitness classes.

There has also been a 34 per cent increase in membership since 2006, according to the District.

It’s a sign that the centre is becoming an important part of people’s lives. And to give back to the community, the District’s Community Services department, along with a crew of volunteers, has planned a two-hour party to be held October 22.

The event will feature a welcome from Mayor Lorne Fisher and council members, program displays, fitness demonstrations, snacks, birthday cake, giveaways, picture displays, games and more, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
