SENIORS’ SCENE: Centre re-opens Tuesday

Kent Street Activity Centre programs set to resume in August

A reminder that the Kent Street Activity Centre will remain closed for general maintenance and cleanup until Monday, Aug. 1 inclusive. We look forward to seeing everyone back very soon as regular office hours resume Tuesday, Aug. 2.

All activity groups meeting through the summer will start up again at the centre this week. For an update of what groups are meeting or information on how to become a White Rock Recreation and Culture member, please call the White Rock Community Centre at 604-541-2199.

This year’s White Rock Sea Festival is going to be the best one yet! Enjoy three days of fun in the sun from Friday, July 29 to Sunday, July 31.

Bring the grandchildren down to the beach to the Pirates in the Park Kid’s Zone, Kid’s Parade, main stage entertainment, Fresh Air Cinema, fireworks and the popular torchlight parade.

Check out www.whiterockseafestival.ca for more information.

Does this warm, sunny weather motivate you to get outside more and be active? The White Rock 0-5-0 Club is always looking for new members. Noncompetitive and recreational riders meet up with other cyclists and go on weekly Sunday rides and special out-trips. Membership is required. Call 604-541-2199 for more information and to register.

Summer is a pretty special time to visit the White Rock Promenade. Enjoy live entertainment by buskers, meet local artists and browse fine art displays, or stop in at one of the food carts for a delicious snack or beverage. So much to do at the beach.
