Time to Sign Up for the Fitness Centre

Here's your chance to join the Fitness Centre or "reup" for the coming year. Fitness Centre Coordinator Sue Stewart gives us the details:

Denman Fitness Centre
2015/16 Gym Memberships Due November 1,
To reflect on the past year, the membership was at 95 members with many guests visiting
the Fitness Centre. Some concern has been expressed that members and guests are wearing outside footwear and leaving equipment out.  We are entering  the rainy season so wearing
CLEAN indoor footwear is a must. Please have the courtesy of putting equipment away - especially
the heavier weights.
And please take this time to offer suggestions of improving the fitness centre either
with additional equipment or procedures.  Email your comments to

Pickleball – now twice a week!

Yes, folks, it’s true!  You can hop around the Pickleball court twice a week now.  Not only Wednesday mornings from 8:30 to 11:30 but also on Sunday afternoon hot on the heels of the morning’s Table Tennis exertions, from 1:00 to 3:00.

For more information about this game that is growing in popularity by leaps and bounds (literally and figuratively), contact Paule at 250-335-1739 or Jenny at 250-335-2120.

The hall is always available for drop-in play, for members and guests.  Just be sure to check the schedule of events on the Activity Centre website at  before you arrange a session.  And, give deNeen, the booking agent, a call (250-335-3027) so you don’t conflict with planned maintenance.
