Quality Foods steps up for Family Day

Local grocer to pay for recreation facilities to remain open

Admission to Oceanside Place and Ravensong Aquatic Centre will be free for everyone on Family Day, thanks to sponsorship from Quality Foods.

The longtime Vancouver Island business has partnered with the Regional District of Nanaimo to keep each facility open for four hours on Family Day, beginning on February 10, 2014.

“Quality Foods is a community-focused business that has always made supporting local events and encouraging active living a priority,” said RDN Chairperson Joe Stanhope. “We are extremely pleased that Quality Foods has stepped forward to be our Family Day sponsor, and we hope that many members of our community will come out to enjoy our recreation facilities on Family Day.”

“Family is very important to all of us at Quality Foods. It gives us great pleasure to provide a fun-filled free day for the families in our communities,” said Quality Foods Executive Assistant Dianna Rivard. “From our family to yours, Happy Family Day!”

Oceanside Place and Ravensong Aquatic Centre will each be open for four hours on Family Day, February 10, 2014.
