Mayor’s Message
From SunSplash to a new splash pad, Summer 2016 is sure to be an exciting time
in the Town of Paradise!
Within the pages of this recreation guide, you’ll find everything you need to make
the most out of each and every day this spring and summer. There’s details surrounding
our new enhancements on Sarah Davis Way, information on summer day camp and
descriptions on our fitness programs – and everything in between.
We’ve planned some new and exciting events including the first ever Town of Paradise
50+ Paradise Wellness Expo which will feature a wide array of resources available
to seniors from businesses and hospitality groups across the province. We’ll also host
Municipal Awareness Day in May, offering residents and visitors a chance to learn more
about the Town and how we operate. Come by and have a chat with myself
and my fellow councillors.
Use this guide to stay in the loop on all the happenings throughout Town. And, don’t forget
to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and download our new app - Pingstreet.
There’s a lot to do and a lot to see, so get outside and enjoy Paradise!
Dan Bobbett, Mayor
Chairperson’s Message
Each season brings with it so many things to celebrate! At the Town of Paradise, summer
means Canada Day Celebrations, beautiful parks and trails, and the highly anticipated
SunSplash Paddle in Paradise Festival –to name a few!
Marking 20 years of success, this year’s SunSplash Paddle in Paradise Festival will surely
be one for the books! Our Recreation and Leisure Committee has been hard at work,
ensuring every last detail is accounted for. This summer we will also commemorate
the 100th anniversary of the battles of the Somme and Beaumont-Hamel with a special
Memorial Day Ceremony.
I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to our committee members, volunteers,
staff, and sponsors for their support in helping to make our programs and events the
success that they are each year.
With so much planned and so much to do, I look forward to celebrating the season
with you!

Cadets
905 Viking Royal Canadian Air Cadet
Squadron continues its training, for its 16th
year of operation. The squadron is based
in Paradise and services the surrounding
areas. The program is open to youth
between the ages of 12 to 18 years with
meetings every Wednesday night at Rotary
Paradise Youth and Community Centre on
McNamara Drive from 6:30 p.m. to 9:15
p.m. The squadron also organizes optional
activities that take place on the weekend.
Training follows the school year, beginning
in September and ending in June.
905 Viking Royal Canadian Air Cadet
Squadron participates in a variety of fun and
challenging activities, offering something
for everyone! The outdoor enthusiast will
appreciate learning survival skills, the
athlete will enjoy physical education and
recreation, through a variety of sporting
activities like biathlon and marksmanship,
and those interested in music will find their
niche in the music program.
Every cadet will have the chance to
participate in flight activities, and some top
senior cadets may even earn a scholarship
to obtain a private pilot’s license. Whether
earning a Transport Canada glider pilot or
private pilot license, these cadets wear their
wings with a pride rarely found in today’s
youth. How would you like to have a license
to fly a glider before you can drive a car?
Some cadets are given the opportunity
to continue their training over the summer,
in another province. They will earn a weekly
allowance and create friendships during
two, three and six week camps, specializing
in certain areas of the cadet program.
Cadets are encouraged to become active,
responsible members of their communities.
They learn valuable life and work skills like
teamwork, leadership, and citizenship. They
also reap the personal benefits of increased
self-confidence and physical fitness,
learning how to take initiative, and how
to make decisions. Cadets make valuable
contributions to society on a daily basis
in terms of environmental, citizenship and
community activities.
Specially-trained Royal Canadian Air Force
Reserve officers and civilians provide
supervision and instruction.
Membership is open to all with no cost for
training, summer camp travel or uniforms.
