School District 60 to upgrade Bert Bowes track

School District 60 is looking to upgrade the running track at Bert Bowes.

The track is used every year for the district track meet, with all schools using it, but low elevation causes the track to flood when it rains.

Part of the upgrades will be to elevate the track, add drainage, and make it more usable all summer long. It rained earlier this year during the track meet, forcing kids to run in mud. 

The district is looking for help with the upgrades. If interested, contact Doug Boyd at SD 60, or Curtis Whitford at 250-262-7658.
