Pottery workshops with Rick Davidson are just one of the many options offered in the new Lake Country Leisure Guide. Book your activities soon to avoid the disappointment of a full class.

Leisure guide offers new experiences

The busyness of September is just around the corner and the District of Lake Country Leisure Guide is available this week to help you plan your fall activities.

The busyness of September is just around the corner and the District of Lake Country Leisure Guide is available this week to help you plan your fall activities.  The Leisure Guide is full of returning favorites plus some new offerings for you to try out.

You can choose to learn how to make natural soap, train your dog, paddle a kayak or gain some fresh ideas on how to entertain your growing toddler.

The goal of the Lake Country Leisure Guide is to provide residents with the opportunity to get out of the house and learn or do something enjoyable.  “If you are interacting with others and are busy that is more of a benefit than being alone,” says Sheila Gunn with the District.  “It has the added bonus of helping to build community.”

There are some classes that will fill quickly warns Gunn, the active fitness for seniors will fill to its max of 18 early and then there will be a waitlist. Fitness training of any age tends to be popular as does the mixed volleyball league.  Yoga continues to entice newcomers and has  a devoted following.  Last year’s surprise hit was the introduction of fencing for ages 8 to adult. Padel will be offered into the fall through the district and it is a great opportunity to play outdoors until the cooler weather arrives.

The arts are well represented in the Guide.  A new fibre arts class for kids is sure to have the crafty girl in your life looking to pick up a crochet hook or a pair of knitting needles.  In a decision that is sure to delight long time enthusiasts of pottery, Rick Davidson is returning to teach a class.

Davidson has taught pottery in the past and is the former art teacher at George Elliott, “We had a fairly good run when we had the classes going before. This will be a series of workshops and fun for people who are looking to learn about ceramics.”

Sign up at for classes in person at the District of Lake Country offices between 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.  You can sign up on the phone (250) 766-5650 or online at www.lakecountry.bc.ca, click on ‘leisure services’ and follow the links.
