The Community Connections night is coming up on Sept. 12. The evening will give residents in Golden the chance to get involved in many activities moving into fall and winter.

Manager of Recreational Services for the Town of Golden, Jordan Petrovics, is one of the town staff planning and organizing the event this year.

Petrovics explained the evening is a great place to learn about local non-for-profit groups and other organizations.

“The goal of the evening is to allow all of our different organizations in town, that are providing some kind of service or benefit to members of our community, to showcase what they are all about and allow them to hand out information and do registration,” he said.

Petrovics said many groups have had successful nights signing people up in the past at this event. He added that the town is extending invitations to many different types of groups this year and they are expecting the Rec Plex to be full.

This year the Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a business mixer and mingle between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.This is open to any business or non-for-profit group that is interested in learning more about what the chamber is involved with in the area.

“We hope to see all of the community out for the event,” Petrovics said.

The event will happen at the Golden Rec Plex between 6:30 and 8 p.m. on Sept. 12. Anyone looking for more information can call 250-344-2271 or drop by the Town office.
