I hope your summer has been wonderful and everyone is settling into the new school year. There has been some recent changes to our chapter and I’m finally getting this out to you all. I have been fortunate to have been part of KidSport Comox Valley for the past 5 years, briefly as chair. It has been such a pleasure getting to know so many local families though events, fundraising campaigns, and through our local sport organizations. Recently my family has relocated to Victoria to pursue lacrosse for my son. It is very exciting, but sadly I will be moving on from the KidSport Comox Valley Chapter.
Through one of our fundraising campaigns with our provincial partner, Triple O’s, I came into contact with Jana and Kurt Letain, the operators for the Courtenay and Nanoose Bay Triple O’s and Chevron. When I knew I needed to fill my position, I immediately thought of them! Their passion for KidSport and involvement in the local community makes them the perfect fit to take on the Comox Valley chapter! Jana and Kurt live in Courtenay with their two young children – Kurt grew up playing hockey and Jana grew up playing softball so they both recognize the value in team sports for children.
So please join me in welcoming Jana as the President and Kurt as the
Vice-President of KidSport Comox Valley. You can reach them at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 250-871-5966.
Wishing you all a great Fall season of sport!
