We are extremely pleased to announce that the Castlegar Selkirk Lions Club have donated a new water wheelchair to the Castlegar & District Aquatic Centre – a busy pool enjoyed by families and people of all ages in our region.  The Aquatic Centre has many patrons who require a water wheelchair to access the pool and whirlpool areas.

The the local recreation department is thrilled with the generosity.

Joanne Baker, Lions Club Secretary, states:  “We are very pleased that we could purchase this water wheelchair to improve the well-being of the local patrons. We like to support local needs and this has been made possible with the support we receive from the community at our fundraising events!”

The presentation of the water wheelchair has taken place at the Castlegar and District Aquatic Centre on Friday, Oct. 19.
