Last week, Recreation Directors from Nain, Makkovik and Rigolet traveled to Marystown Newfoundland for training.
Lisa Ivany is the Recreation Director of the Nain Inuit Community Government.
She says everything went as scheduled and they had a great time.
Ivany says they now have their first module completed toward becoming certified in Recreation Management.
The module contains approximately 60 pages worth of training.
She says prior to the training; she didn’t think that the other communities’ recreation departments faced similar challenges.
But she found out they too face lack of funding, low interest levels from local residents etc.
Ivany adds that they are all in the same boat and is glad to know that their recreation department is not alone.
