Ester Strijbos
We just received 12 complimentary travel passes (vehicle/driver) from BC Ferries to cover some of the costs for our swimmers. The program is popular, our 2 vehicles fill up quickly and we are turning people away. The group consists of people that have recent hip replacements, knee replacements, arthritis, joint problems, or people that want more exercise. Now we are able to take a 3rd vehicle when necessary. A Big Thank You to BC Ferries AND to our volunteer drivers. We could not do it without you!

The swimming program is open to anybody that is a CISS member (50+, $10 per person/year, mail membership to P.Elliott, Box 212, Manson's), and is on first come first serve basis. The next scheduled day is November 17th, and you can sign up by calling Ester Strijbos at 250-935-6441
