CUPE supports Trail Silver City Days with a free community swim

TRAIL-The Canadian Union of Public Employees invites the community to a free swim at the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre on May 11 from 12 pm to 3 pm.

“CUPE members who work to make the West Kootenays a wonderful place to live wanted to say thanks to our communities as part of Trail’s 2014 Silver City Days,” said Andrew Chernoff, a representative of CUPE 2087.

“We know that the hardworking people of Trail, Salmo, Castlegar and the region take great pride in their communities and CUPE members who live and work in these communities wanted to acknowledge that pride and give a little bit back.”

Chernoff said that with May 11 being Mothers’ Day, CUPE 2087 hopes that families will see the free swim as one more option for celebrating the day. The Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre is at 1875 Columbia Avenue, phone 250 364-0888 or 250 368-6484.
