“This project is an example or our commitment to ensure that all of our facilities are as accessible as possible” said, Wayne Mihalicz Recreation Facilities Coordinator.

“I think it’s great that Priest Valley Arena is more accessible for everyone to use” said, Crystal Williams Youth Coordinator with Independent Living Vernon.
