The Vernon Aquatic Centre will be hosting a free swim on Monday — B.C. Family Day — from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

The free splash is made possible by a grant from the B.C. Recreation Parks Association (BCRPA).

The ministry of community, sport and cultural development, in partnership with the BCRPA, made the grant available to support local recreation departments in coordinating family-based, admission-free events scheduled for the Family Day long weekend.
