RDN achievement recognized

Local athletes and artists who have won gold medals at provincial championships this year were recognized last Thursday for their achievements.

Twenty athletes were invited to attend an awards presentation and reception Nov. 28 at Oceanside Place.

“Through our performance recognition program, the District 69 Recreation Commission strives to recognize members of our community who embrace the concept of active living, and who contribute to the well-being of our community through their achievements in athletics and the arts,” said Scott Tanner, District 69 recreation commission chair.

Athletes from the B.C. Senior Games, as well as numerous other sports and events at the provincial championships, received certificates at the presentation.

The program is open to individuals and teams who have placed first in provincial, inter-provincial or national athletic or artistic competitions.

To qualify for this program, nominees must be amateur participants who live in the City of Parksville, Town of Qualicum Beach or Electoral Area E, F, G or H.
