2015/11 – Parks and Rec Commission

We laughed, we lunched and we learned. You should join us!

The November 4th meeting of the Newcomers’ Club truly appreciated the overview of Pender Island Parks and Recreation Commission (PIPRC) given by John Chapman and Michael Symons.  They were our guest speakers for this month, and once again we learned more about this treasure of islands and the strength of volunteers.

PIPRC (currently 8 volunteer bd. members) developed and maintain (thanks to one staff person) over 80 trails/ocean accesses on North and South Penders, as well as administering funds to a large number of recreational groups.  Sincere thanks goes to the person who has built the benches and picnic tables at many of the sites.  Hauling the supplies to their intended location is no small task!!
