On behalf of the Town of Golden, its elected Council and members of staff, I am pleased to welcome you to the Golden and District Recreation Facility.

We may be a small community, but our Arena is a busy hub for our residents.  Owned by the community through the Columbia Shuswap Regional District and operated by the Town of Golden, the facility is home to many not-for- profit recreation groups from our Junior Rockets hockey club and Minor Hockey
organization; to our Figure Skating Club and Silvertips drop-in hockey; to the Golden School of Martial Arts and Hapkido martial arts clubs. In addition, the building hosts many Town of Golden public programs, including parent and tot skate, public skate and drop-in pond hockey. A concession, lounge and meeting
room are also part of the complex.

The Golden Rockets program has been focusing on developing citizens as well as hockey players. The team has been active in the community, volunteering at the Golden Food Bank, the Golden Senior’s Centre, Reading at school and working with and raising funds with the Little Mittens Animal Rescue Association. Players
have also been providing snow shoveling services to seniors in our town. The program has given players leadership roles with our Minor Hockey Association, helping kids develop a love of sports that they can take with them into adulthood, ensuring that the spirit of the game will endure in Golden.

It takes a great effort from our dedicated volunteers to ensure the success of the many groups that use this facility and we are thankful for all that they do.

Go Rockets Go.

Ron Oszust, Mayor
Town of Golden.
