55+ sports event returns to Community Centre

Pickleball, tai chi, skating among offerings

After a similar event in June was successful, the Cowichan Community Centre is giving interested folks another opportunity to try out some new sports and activities.

On Sept. 12, the CCC is holding 55+ Try-it Day Cowichan, including pickleball, tai chi, mahjong, yoga, and drawing with artists from the Cowichan Valley Arts Council.

“This event will give participants the opportunity to get active, try a variety of activities, and meet new people and local instructors,” said CCC sports programmer Darcy Kulai. “We did a similar event in the spring, which drew about 60 participants, and hope to build on that this fall.”

The cost is $15, which includes lunch and entry into the prize draw.

To register, call the Cowichan Community Centre at 250-748-7529 or visit www.reccowichan.ca
