Eastlink staff are thrilled to have hosted the Parking Lot party in August. The outdoor ZUMBA class was a huge hit and everyone was inspired to have Mayor Given take part in the class. The Centre was buzzing all day with the 3 on 3 Basketball tournament, as well as, the Community Connections Event. Not to overshadow the 108 extra parking stalls we now have at the Fieldhouse entrance.

Parking Lot Party

What an absolute blast! Thankyou to the over 1200 people that came to our Parking Lot Party and especially to the 400+ participants in the Outdoor ZUMBA class. We had a free bbq for the entire community, bouncy castles and face painting for the kids. And of course the ZUMBA class for everyone.

Cannot wait to do it again!

The first annual Eastlink Center 3 on 3 basketball tournament was held the weekend of August 25 & 26 to coincide with the parking lot party. We would like to thank Quiznos for being the tournament sponsor. The tournament had 11 teams split into 3 divisions, men’s, ladies and U 15. It was a great weekend of basketball and everyone had a great time. Based on the positive feedback from participants and moving the date to earlier in the year we expect the 2013 tournament to be bigger and better.

Skate Park Opening The Skate Park officially opened on August 15, 2012.

Garfield Wilson After a diverse career in music and film, Garfield Wilson found his true calling when he established his Vancouver-based personal training business, Forward Fitness Inc., in 2004. When Garfield felt it was time to move away from the entertainment industry, he discovered that personal training was a conduit to marry his two passions: fitness and connecting with others. Garfield’s vivacious energy, determination and passion has drawn significant attention to his work. In 2010, Garfield was sought out by Chip Wilson himself to become a Lululemon ambassador for their flagship 4th Avenue store. Garfield was also asked to star in the ground-breaking CBC docu-series, Village on a Diet; this 10-week series

chronicled the community of Taylor, BC in a turbulent 3-month journey of weight-loss, life-style change, and self-discovery. In the winter of 2011, Garfield was invited to co-host CBC’s Canada-wide promotional tour for CBC Live and to promote its national Live Right Now Campaign. Garfield now works with his team of trainers and health care partners to build a supportive health and wellness community – both locally and nationally. Join Garfield for a one hour seminar followed by a one hour workout designed for all fitness levels.

Meet the familiar faces around the

staff

If you are a regular around the Eastlink Centre you start to get to know folks who work here, so we wanted to share a few familiar faces with you so next time you say Hi, you will know who they are! Yo, My name is Lauren Kemp and I have been with the City for 4 years. I started off with the City at the Kid’s Place Playschool for my first practicum placement in 2008 for Early Childhood Development. The City has provided with me with so many opportunities such as Summer Camp Leader, School Programmer, Summer Coordinator and more. In 2011 I had the opportunity to apply at the Eastlink Centre to work for Child and Youth Services and as a Coordinator I continue to learn something new every day, I absolutely love working for the City it is like a whole new family that I have gained. When I’m not working I enjoy relaxing with friends, shopping and yoga! Lauren Kemp Child and Youth Services Coordinator

Hi I’m Gloria the Fitness Supervisor. I’ve been with the City for over 10 years. I moved to GP many years ago from NB. I’m married and have two aweswome children and I love spending time with family and friends. Of course, my biggest passion is fitness and I like to travel too. The Leisure Centre was where we went to exercise many years ago when we all wore leg warmers!! I’m sure there are a few ladies that know what I’m talking about! TLC was like family to me and now Eastlink Centre has the same feeling. What I love about working at Eastlink Centre is not only the
