A record number of Sparwood families hit the pool last Saturday, for EKC’s free swim day. In an effort to beat the chill of winter, remain involved in their community,  promote their new branch and showcase their products and services EKC was happy to offer the awesome day for all of Sparwood’s residents.

 “The day was really successful, we had many people enter our draws and were happy to see all the smiling faces come and go out of the pool,” says Eric Johnstone, Branch Manager of Sparwood and Fernie. Joining Eric on the very busy afternoon, were Tracey Brook-Baker Member Services Leader and Megan Prueter Service Representative , who were filling up balloons, passing out frisbees and greeting those who passed by their booth. “The Recreation Department reported there have been a record number of people attending the swim, which is really great to see. We really hope everyone had a great afternoon,” says Brook-Baker.

 The EKC Sparwood Branch management and employees would also like to extend a huge thank you to the community for all their support, and encourage everyone to come check out all of their products and services available.
