New Westminster, B.C., March 1, 2010 – A $10,000 donation to the City of Burnaby Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services will result in Free Family Swims on the first Sunday of every month, all year long, courtesy of Westminster Savings.

Although new to the Heights community, supporting community events and programs is something engrained in Westminster Savings’ 65 year history. Westminster Savings holds a strong commitment to active community citizenship and believes in taking a lead role in supporting and sustaining vibrant, healthy communities. “Our commitment to the well-being of our neighbours is an integral component of our business philosophy,” says Nicole Eich, Foundation and Community Investment Manager for Westminster Savings, “we are proud to offer this sponsorship which will help families to have fun and be active together”.

The donation will offer Free Family Swims on the first Sunday of every month starting April 4th at the Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool at 240 Willingdon Avenue in Burnaby.

The official announcement of the donation will take place at the Grand Opening of the new Westminster Savings Hastings Heights branch this Saturday, March 6 at the corner of Hastings and Gilmore. From 11am – 3pm, everyone is invited to stop by for free food, live entertainment and fun activities for the whole family, including face painting, and a chance to step into the money booth. Plus, $10,000 in gifts and prizes will be given out, most from merchants in the local Burnaby Heights area.

Says Barry Forbes, President and CEO of Westminster Savings, “We pride ourselves on the quality of service we provide and our commitment to continuous improvement, caring about our communities, and acting with honesty and integrity. We are thrilled to be joining a neighbourhood who shares these same values”.

Swim times for the monthly Free Family Swims is available by contacting the Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool at 604-298-SWIM (7946).
