Families in Oceanside have been taking advantage of the Lions Club’s free Sunday skate program for quite a while now, but their upcoming session this Sunday is going to be something special.
That’s because, said organizer Don Gamble, the club is piggybacking the weekly skate with their own anniversary celebration.
“We’ve been serving Parksville for 42 years and we will be serving a big birthday cake at the free family skate,” he said.
The skate begins at 12:15 p.m. and runs until 1:45. Gamble said the cake will be served between 1 and 1:30 p.m.
The free family skate draws about 130 skaters every week and runs until Dec. 18 before breaking for Christmas and starting up again on Jan. 8.
