New pool advocate group hoping to make a splash in 100 Mile House

The group will hold a town hall meeting on Dec. 11

A new pool advocacy group will be having a town hall meeting at the 100 Mile House Community Hall on Dec. 11.

“We came up with the idea because of the thinking that there’s a lot of [who] weren’t aware of a lot of the facts from previous years and what had been done and the history of pool advocacy in 100 Mile House and area,” said Lisa Rangno, an executive member of the South Cariboo Aquaplex Initiative. “So we decided it would be best that we have a town hall meeting and open it up to everybody.”

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Rangno and the two other executive members will explain the background and the history of the pool advocacy in the area as well as what has and hasn’t been done up until this year. Afterwards, they will explain what the South Cariboo Aquaplex Initiative hopes to achieve.

Then the floor will be open for attendees to ask their own questions and share what they would like to see as well as give their own ideas.

“Really, that’s what it’s all about. It’s just to invite the community and let them know what we’ve been up to and to have their input as far as what they want to see in their own community,” said Rangno.

She said the group has only just started to get the word out.

The South Cariboo Aquaplex Initiative created a Facebook page on April 2, 2018. As of Nov. 30, the group has 398 people likes and 426 followers.
