The Recreation Department is working on the Spring Brochure, which will be available mid-March and cover the months of April, May and June.   If you’re new to town and interested in teaching a hobby or skill that you enjoy, please contact us to discuss opportunities for running a program.  If you represent a local organization and you have events during that time period that you’d like to advertise, please email us with the information, at recreation@rossland.ca

Mark your calendars for the SD20 meeting at RSS, next week, on Tuesday, February 12 at 7:00pm.  There has been some discrepancy about the time – some information indicates 6:30pm, some indicates 7:00pm.  Get there at 6:30pm and you’ll be sure to get a seat, as it’s anticipated that the Gymnasium will be full.  This is the School Board’s second reading in their decision making process regarding the schools configurations in Rossland. 

Basketball at RSS has cancelled on Tuesday, February 12 due to the SB Meeting.  The REC Department posts updated course information and cancellations on Facebook, Bhubble and Rossland.ca – Program Guide, page.    If you’re a Facebook fan, “like” us on Facebook and you’ll get Recreation updates delivered right to you. 

Folk Dancing at the Miners Hall is a great way to meet new people, get some exercise and learn a few new moves!  The dancing style is a blend of English Country – the village and court dances from the Jane Austin era and American Contra – the barn dancing, square dancing style.  No complicated steps are required, just a desire to have fun and move to the beat!  Facilitated by Dave Cornelius, Folk Dancing is offered once a month, on Thursdays, in the Miners Hall.  This month the date is Thursday, February 7 from 7:00-9:00pm.  The cost is $8.00 drop in.
