City connects residents to programs online
May 07, 2013 - 3:15 PM
With the goal of becoming a more sustainable city, and the growing popularity of smart phones and tablets, the City of Kelowna has improved its online quarterly Activity and Program Guide and presented one lucky resident with a new iPad to help with the transition from paper to online viewing.
On Friday, April 19, Janine Demidoff proudly picked up her first-ever iPad from City staff at the Parkinson Recreation Centre; a prize won through the City’s Recreation e-Subscribe contest. Residents were encouraged to sign-up for the Activity & Program e-Subscribe feed by March 31. In addition to receiving the new online guide each quarter and regular recreation updates, residents who had signed up by March 31 would be entered to win an iPad.
“The e-Subscribe system is really easy and it’s very handy to have the guide delivered to my computer,” says Demidoff. “I prefer using the online guide for viewing and registering for programs, and now with the iPad it is even easier to view the guide on-the-go.”
Recognizing that some residents still prefer the hard copy, the Activity and Program Guide is available for pick-up at the following locations.
· Parkinson Recreation Centre
· H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre
· Rutland Arena
· Glenmore IGA
· Kelowna Library (Downtown on Ellis)
The summer guide will be available online May 27 and for pick-up May 28. Meanwhile, spring program registration is still open for a number of programs including tennis camps and Bootcamp 4 Results.
