May 2020

Since the founding of the Balfour Recreation Commission our mission has been to operate and maintain community use facilities in the Balfour area. The BRC strives to promote healthy living and community spirit while building a network of community resources as a base for future events and community development.

The COVID-19 pandemic has required us to raise and implement our protocols for the current circumstances.  With the opening of the Golf Course, our staff and clients have supported these efforts with the resulting best & busiest May on record.  We want to acknowledge the dedication and support we have received to maintain the success of the Golf Course.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge Annie Bailey and her service to our community through her food service business at the Osprey Mountain Grill in the clubhouse of the Balfour Golf Course.  Sadly, Annie has decided to depart from the restaurant.  This unexpected turn of events has us considering alternatives going forward.

Following the Government requirements we are now able to open our pickleball/tennis courts for use with safety, distancing and minimal participant protocols posted.  Our Community Hall and Wharf facilities will also be available as per these protocols.  Unfortunately, at this time, we will not open the Fitness Centre and the Playground due to the BC Government requirements related to the pandemic precautions.

The BRC Annual General Meeting will be postponed until such time as larger gatherings are permitted.

Through this there have been countless moments of kindness and resilience witnessed in our community.    We don’t know when the COVID-19 pandemic will be over or when our lives will return to some sort of normalcy, but we look forward to continuing to serve the Balfour area.

Until that time, please stay safe and healthy

Brant Gray, President

On behalf of the BRC Board of Directors
