It was a chance for Ponoka residents to get signed up, as well as their children, for a wide array of activities.
The annual Community Registration Night was held Aug. 29 at the Kinsmen Community Centre, with around 16 organizations — ranging from minor sports groups to adult clubs and community organizations — setting up tables to provide one-stop shopping for anyone interested.
Officials with the town, who also had a table at the event to provide information about the programs offered at the arena and Aquaplex as well as answer any questions, explained the evening went well with people funnelling through the doors over the three hour time frame that evening.
The town added not many of the people lingered at any of the 16 booths available since the majority were there to get their name or child into a specific club or sport.
The gathering was slightly smaller than in 2017 with a few groups either not choosing to participate or are no longer operating.
Planning for next year’s event is being contemplated as there will need to be a change in venue, with the possible sale of the Kinsmen Community Centre. One option being looked at is setting up on the curling rink ice surface.
