June is Recreation Month

Information for the Public

June 8, 2020

The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay along with communities throughout the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador is pleased to celebrate June as Recreation Month.


A lunchtime ceremony via Zoom was held at Town Hall; His Worship Mayor Wilson (Wally) Andersen along with members of the 12th Council of the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay and the Town’s Director of Community Services & Recreation signed a Proclamation declaring the month of June 2020 as ‘Recreation Month” in the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay.


Recreation Month was created to draw public attention to the important benefits and values of recreation to individuals, families and communities. The primary goal of Recreation Month is to raise awareness around recreation and its many benefits.


This year, more than any other year, it is important to remember that recreation is all of the activities that bring health and wellness to your life! You can enjoy those recreational activities from the comforts of your home/ backyard/ neighbourhood.


Let’s celebrate Recreation Month in a whole new way!


During the month of June, our partners, #Recreation NL will be hosting a social media campaign to give our followers the opportunity to win prizes! Recreation NL will be asking you to upload pictures of how you and your family are staying recreational during isolation.
