Last week, we had the honor of attending the Opening Ceremony of the Parkland Secondary School Track! 🏟️
Although it faced budgetary challenges and many ups and downs, the collective determination of the #community has now turned this vision into a reality.
This incredible achievement was made possible by the collaborative efforts of Parkland Secondary School, Saanich School District, Memorial Park Society, the District of North Saanich, the Town of Sidney, and generous local businesses and citizens. 🤝
The ceremony was marked by speeches from esteemed guests and a symbolic ribbon-cutting.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to making this valuable athletic facility a reality for our community. 🙏

🌟 Thursday: We were honored to be a part of the Sport BC Community Hero Awards, kicking off the BC Sports Hall of Fame 2023 Annual Summit. It was an inspiring evening where we joined Sport BC in recognizing the invaluable contributions of BC Sport volunteers.
🗣️ Friday Morning: The General Meeting of the BC Sports Hall Network provided a platform for insightful discussions on the development of local, regional, and sport-specific sports halls, museums, galleries, and exhibits in our beautiful province.
🍽️ Friday Lunch: The Defining Moments Luncheon, powered by the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific was a heartwarming tribute to the defining moments in British Columbia and Greater Victoria's sports history. It was an opportunity to connect with leaders who have left an indelible mark on our sporting community.
