The Gabriola Recreation Society (GRS) is a non-profit organization providing recreation services to Gabriola. GRS offers recreation programs, grants for local recreation oriented projects, and assists with community parks. Core funding comes from the RDN. GRS is “granted” back a portion of taxes paid for recreation services; the rest goes towards our usage of pools, arenas, and playing fields throughout the Southern Regional Recreation District. The Society is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Meetings are the third Thursday of the month at Robert’s, 5 – 6:30 p.m. GRS has 1 part-time employee, 2 summer staff, and numerous contract instructors. 

The AGM is March 27, and GRS is seeking new Board members. This is a great opportunity for enthusiastic, community minded folks to help direct the future of the organization. Contact the office at 250-247-2014; or if you are interested.
