SISTERS, OR -- Many summer events in Sisters Country were canceled last year, but the Sisters Park and Recreation District plans to bring them all back for 2019. Event Coordinator Shannon Rackowski says excitement for the fun and popular gatherings is definitely growing, "People in the community really love the events. The last three weeks, we started getting phone calls asking, 'Is there going to be the Glory Daze (pictured) car show?', 'Is the luau back on?', 'Is the home brew [festival] going to happen?', 'What about the GNW Running camps?', and when can they register? So that's really exciting for me." She says the District's previous Executive Director opted out of the events, much to the disappointment of the community.

 

In addition to the annual favorites, Rackowski tells KBND News, there will be a new event this year, "The first Sisters Senior Fitness Games. It's kind of a takeoff of the international Senior Olympics. We will have four-man relays, we will have a pickleball tournament, tennis, three-on-three basketball, horseshoes, a jog, a wheelchair relay; and this will be for anyone 62 years old, and older."


Rackowski says these events can't happen without help, "[We] Can't do these events without volunteers. No one ever gets turned away from volunteering. In fact, they get to choose, and sometimes we have people that do more than one, which is always really appreciated." To learn more, go to the Sisters Park and Recreation website, or stop by the district office on McKinney Butte Road and ask for Shannon.
