What does recreation mean to you?
"Recreation is important to our everyday lives. It fosters personal growth, relationships, work-life balance and encourages a healthy and active lifestyle. Communities that support and encourage recreation will be stronger as they put in an exerted effort to promote inclusion and equity in their public spaces.
Culture, recreation, and sport activities play an important role in communities; the many benefits include improving the health and wellbeing of individuals, promoting the development of inclusive communities and contributing to the empowerment of residents and visitors."
National Communities in Bloom Judge, Village of Buena Vista
Can you describe your background in recreation?
"I am a retired educator. As a physical education teacher, I spent a lot of time over my 30-year career offering students physical activity. In the 1980s, I served as the Regina Speed Skating Club's head coach and spent a number of years as the SaskFirst Coach for Saskatchewan.
In 1984 and again in 1986, I was sent to Jilin, China to work with the provincial team there. I have also served as a Provincial and National Communities in Bloom Judge for the last 10 years. I served as an International Judge in 2018."
