2016 Symposium and Awards Ceremonies

Thank you to Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association.

On behalf of all delegates, from Canada, the United States, Ireland, England, Northern Ireland, Italy and Croatia who attended the Healthy Communities – Harvesting the Benefits events in Regina, let us thank the Host Committee along with the SPRA and the CiB staff for working so hard in making the event a success!

The Keynote presentations, session presentations, technical tours all met the expectations and provided excellent educational information and inspirational ideas.

The Parks and RecFest allowed the delegates to mix and mingle …and our International guests to discover how Canadians enjoy Halloween!

Pride of community was, as always, clearly demonstrated throughout the Showcase Dinner and Awards Ceremonies.

Congratulations to all National and International Finalists who, with the support of elected officials, dedication of municipal staff and involvement of citizens are making their communities better places to live in, work in and to visit!

Bob Lewis, National Chair
