What’s up Rec?

Hop, hop, hop into Easter. The Easter bunny is bring­ing warm weather as well as choco­late eggs. Al­though there may still be some ev­i­dence left­over from the win­ter sea­son, spring­time is fi­nally here and we hope that you will con­tinue to join with us in help­ing to keep Amherst clean and tidy. Spring wel­comes along with it an op­por­tu­nity for a fresh start and new growth.

We will be form­ing a Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom com­mit­tee this spring to help us im­prove upon our com­mu­nity as a whole. A pub­lic meet­ing will be held at the Com­mu­nity Credit Union Build­ing In­no­va­tion Cen­tre at 5 Ratch­ford St. on Wed­nes­day, April 11 at 6 p.m.

If you are in­ter­ested in be­com­ing an ac­tive mem­ber of the Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom com­mit­tee, we wel­come you to at­tend.

It’s been a very ac­tive win­ter at the Amherst Sta­dium.

Re­cently we hosted eight Pee­wee AA teams from across the prov­ince.

The Town of Amherst, un­der the Free Ice Project, was able to pro­vide 14 hours of free ice time. We are ex­tremely proud of this project and we are en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple who use the ice at the Amherst Sta­dium and fill out a quick sur­vey.

Please visit www.amherst.ca and the sur­vey is linked to a story with head­ing SUR­VEY: Amherst Sta­dium No Fee Ice Pi­lot. Thank you in ad­vance for tak­ing the time to fill out this quick sur­vey.
