Winter activities in Golden are coming to a close, and the spring and summer activities are gearing up for their start to the season.

The Town of Golden Recreation Department is hosting a Spring Recreation Information and Registration Night to help the groups and organizations offering these activities to showcase what they do on Friday April 26.

“The concept is very similar to the registration night we hold in the fall,” said Jordan Petrovics, manager of recreation services for the Town of Golden. “We want to give the groups who organize spring and summer activities the same opportunity we do for the groups in the fall.”

The Swim Club, Golden Minor Soccer, Special Olympics, Golden Kicking Horse Alpine Team, and the Town of Golden swimming lessons will all have booths at the registration night. The Town had always hosted a registration night for swimming, and they saw an opportunity to expand on that.

The event is being hosted in the Golden Arena Lobby, from 6 to 8 p.m., in conjunction with the 2013 Golden Spring Home and Lifestyle Show at the Golden Curling Rink.

“It was a good opportunity to tie the two events together. Given the location, it’s really easy for people to walk from one event the other, and check out both on the same night,” said Petrovics.

Any organization interested in exhibiting at the registration night has until April 18 to register, and can do so by contacting recreation services co-ordinator Kim Bryan at 344-0120, or

The expo-style event gives organizations and clubs the chance to seek new members, network with other organizations, promote their programs and services, and even seek out volunteers.

Public admission is free, allowing families to come out and see what recreation the community has to offer.
