Rossland Recreation column
The recreation department is currently working on the fall and winter brochure. The brochure typically spans the months of September to December but in the interest of saving paper, printing costs and administrative time, the rec department will combine the fall and winter brochures into one, spanning the months of September to March.
There’s an outdoor concert at the Rossland Museum on Wednesday, July 27 starting at 6:30 p.m., with the barbecue starting at 5:30 p.m.

If you’re interested in bee keeping or raising chickens, or just want to keep the dogs and bears out of your garden, there’s an electric fence workshop coming up on May 28 from 2-4 p.m. The workshop is $5 per person and is being put on by Rossland REAL Food and Bear Aware.
The Kootenay Dance Works year end performance is this Saturday, May 14, at 6:30 p.m. in the Charles Bailey Theatre in Trail. If you don’t already have a ticket, they can be purchased at the Box Office which opens at 5:30 p.m.
Are you interested in an early morning lap swim at the pool this summer? We can’t make that happen on a regular basis due to staff scheduling, payroll and pre-programmed lessons and camps, but we can work with groups who would like to schedule specific dates or weeks. For instance, if an organization wanted to commit to a week, or several weeks over the summer, and pay the hourly rental rate, we would schedule the staff to open early
The REC Department is starting to move into “Pool Season” and we’re looking at new programs and opportunities for the community. We’ve heard over the years that an early morning lap swim would be an asset to the community.
The REC Department is excited about bringing Amber Oosthuyzen’s “Redefining Beauty” course to Rossland! Amber is a local teen from Trail who has developed a course for girls and young women that helps them to channel their self-worth, develop healthy relationships and teaches them to set the bar high.
