The idea for a Rec & Resource Fair came from the community. Participants at the Adult Community Conversation table noted that it can be difficult to find out about all of the activities that take place in Jasper.
In an effort to make the community more welcoming and inclusive, the group determined a rec and resource fair would be the perfect community fix.
Jasper's first fair was held on Sept. 6, 2018 and attracted more than 50 booths and hundreds of community members. Feedback was very positive so the Jasper Community Team Society sought funding to continue offering this event in the community. The Jasper Community Team Society has now obtained funding to organize another Recreation and Resource Fair in Jasper in the Fall of 2019.
In order to ensure Jasper is welcoming and inclusive all year long and that community members can find out about activities in the community during all four seasons, Community and Family Services is collecting contact information for a Recreation Directory.
