The Babysitters Course is being offered this Saturday, June 16. The dates have changed from those indicated on the front cover of the Brochure.  The course is running from 9-4 p.m. in the Rossland Arena lounge.  Participants will need a snack, water, lunch and a pen or pencil.

The last Joe Hill Coffee House of the season is being held on Sunday, June 17 at 7 p.m. This month’s lineup has a wide range of local talent, spanning a full range of ages.

The pool is holding an Adult’s Swimming Lessons class, from Monday June 18 to Thursday, June 28, 7-7:30 p.m. This course will introduce adaptive techniques to ensure safety, stability and success in the water. The goal is not to make you an Olympic swimmer, it’s to ensure you enjoy being in the water.  If you have phobias and or fears, don’t worry…..the instructors can help you become confident and relaxed in the water.

If you’re interested in having a booth at the Rossland Mountain Market, the first one is on Thursday, June 28 from 3 – 6 p.m. Due to the construction, the location has changed to Queen Street between the Red Roof Church and the old Firehall. If you are interested please contact the market coordinator in advance. Please visit www.rosslandfood.com for more information including contact details.

The Rossland Pool is looking for all local youth who currently hold the Bronze Cross Advanced Aquatic certification. We will be introducing an assistant Jr. Lifeguard position at the pool and are currently accepting applications for part time work throughout the summer.  Please forward your resume to the recreation department at recreation@rossland.ca.

The Gold Fever Follies are hard at work rehearsing for another great summer of live theatre. Their opening night is Saturday, June 30 at 7:30 p.m.

For the teenagers in our community, please consider taking your Advanced Aquatic Courses, in order to obtain employment in a challenging and rewarding field. Aquatics is a great way to work part time while you’re in high school and can help offset the cost of college or university.  There is an increasing shortage in our area, of qualified Staff to operate our local, outdoor pools.  If you’re thinking about your future employment options – GET CERTIFIED as quickly as possible.  We need you!  In order to be fully employable, you’ll need the following courses; Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross, NLS, AWSI and WSI.

Roller Fit in the Rossland Arena runs on Tuesdays, from 7:30-9 p.m. and runs until June 26. Each 90 minute class will consist of on-skate dynamic warm ups, cardio, core and upper body strength exercises. Instructor Darlene Jamin (aka Slameron Diaz) will lead you in this fun and energizing total body workout – without all the bruises!  This course is for women of all ages, from 13 years and up!  Drop In is $12, including HST.  Proper safety equipment, including a mouth guard, helmet, shin, elbow and wrist guards and either roller skates or inline skates are mandatory.  For more information, please contact Darlene, at darjamin@telus.net
