Fall fun at South Surrey Recreation Centre

Are you looking forward to enjoying those beautiful warm autumn days here in South Surrey?

Well, walk, bike or drive over to the centre to check out some of the diverse activities that have been programmed for fall.

Start with September, which is packed with a variety of events for every age.

Some new morning workshops to start the autumn season are being offered.

On Wednesday, Sept. 7, sign up for a floral class that will see you creating a beautiful fall wreath to enhance your home either outside or inside. A professional florist will provide the supplies and guidance to accomplish this and you can drop by to view the sample wreath displayed at our front counter.

If you have always wanted to capture the stories of your life into words, then join us on Wednesday, Sept. 14 for a workshop on exploring ways to begin. It is an opportunity to share with friends and family the important memories of your life.

Both of these classes take place in the morning and are finished by lunch.

Our next Kid’s Stuff Swap Meet is happening on Saturday, Sept. 10 at the rec centre.

This event is directed towards preschool and children’s items and is a great way to sell your toys, clothes or books that you can no longer use.

The cost is only $16 for a table, so start sorting out those bedrooms and garages and take advantage of participating in a community-style garage sale.

Our fifth annual 55+ Pickleball Tournament is taking place on Saturday, Sept. 17 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This tournament hosts players from all areas of B.C. and is a day for all levels of players to enjoy the benefits of a recreational tournament.

Volunteers and staff have been working together to provide a day of pickleball and socialization in a tournament atmosphere, splitting players by age groups in a compass-style draw.

Players will receive a light breakfast, snacks, delicious lunch and prizes included in the registration fee.

Don’t be shy, there is still time to sign up. Spectators are welcome to come out and view from the top lobby.

If you have any questions, contact me at 604-592-6962.

Help us celebrate the grand opening of Kensington Prairie Community Centre on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Experience a fun-filled family day in a country-style fair with entertainment, crafts and demonstrations as just a few of the things you will enjoy.

If you attended or participated at Kensington Prairie in the past, this is an opportunity to visit the newly renovated heritage site and share your stories with your community.

We end our month with a mini Family Wellness Fair on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Local health-care organizations, retailers, nursing groups and more will provide valuable information for all ages ranging from babies to seniors.

There will be an opportunity to discuss relevant topics around health, ageism and available community resources for your family members.

Drop by and join us for this informative day. Light, healthy snacks and refreshments will be provided.

See you at the centre.

Terri Focker, a community service assistant for the City of Surrey, writes monthly on seniors activities.
