Wawa Recreation Registration Night Arrives

Wawa residents are being encouraged to sign up for local recreation programs in a special event tonight.

Community Services and Tourism Assistant Director Brian Lachine explains the "Registration Night" event is exactly what you'd expect.

Lachine adds it's not just a chance to register or show interest in some local recreation, but also to learn more, including about the various opportunities there are in town, as he notes a previous registration night boosted participation for one local group that wasn't well known in town.

Everyone is welcome to attend the event, which runs from 6 pm to 9 pm at the Michipicoten Memorial Community Centre.

Meanwhile, the Department of Community Services and Tourism has issued an update on plans for arena ice installation, saying a structural inspection of the arena's scheduled for next Monday, September 9th, through Wednesday, September 11th, and repairs to the high-pressure ammonia piping are tentatively scheduled for Monday the 9th through Thursday, September 12th, so ice installation's tentatively scheduled to start on Friday, September 13th, taking two weeks, which should mean the first ice availability will be Saturday, September 28th.
