This summer I have been working at the Ashcroft HUB, and it has been really great. I do a lot of little jobs here and there, like sweeping the halls, mopping the gym floor, pulling weeds, or making posters for upcoming events. Helping [summer student] Maryn [William] create the teen drop-in was lots of fun, and it’s good that we are making such a program. It’s fun getting to know a lot of people in the community, every time they come and renew their memberships or just stop by to say hi.

The Ashcroft HUB Society is a great thing for Ashcroft. It helps keep people active with the gym, and it is really affordable for a membership. They have a lot of group workout classes, like chair yoga, Zumba, and lots of other classes, and fun camps for youth. We held a science camp and it was a great success, and then we had a fine and dramatic arts camp led by WRAPS. We have also started up the teen drop-in program, with basketball, volleyball, floor hockey, and lots of other fun sports. Last week there was a RAWK music camp and the kids learned to play instruments; it was a lot of fun.

It is fun to hang out with friends. I think having a place like the HUB really helps the town of Ashcroft. It’s a place for people to go and have some fun after school, and it’s not only about getting fit: we also have youth rooms and an adult hangout room with a pool table and a foosball table. It’s really a great thing to have in our community, and helps everyone have something to do and not just sit around on the couch. So get up and do something at the HUB!
