We are almost finished week one of the new facilities and back to almost a “normal” fun-filled summer. I’ve been popping in and watching a few classes this first week and have noticed lots of smiling faces, both young and old. I’m sure the kids are falling asleep like rocks with so many activities to tire them out!

All the new facilities look fantastic, and we are making great use of them.

I hope to see you around the club!

Jamie Watson, CBSC President
