Michelle Horncastle

Michelle is the Recreation Director for Assiniboine Valley Recreation based in Russell, Manitoba. She used her Harry Boothman Bursary to attend the Gathering Strength: Framework for Recreation in Canada Forum held in Regina. This national event focused on building relationships, continuing dialogue, and working in cooperation towards achieving the goals of the Framework for Recreation in Canada: Pathways to Wellbeing. Attending this national conference allowed her to expand her knowledge base, and learn best practices from communities across the country. It confirmed that our organization is on the right track for implementing the Framework in our strategic planning and specifically our programming philosophy. Lastly, it reiterated the importance of collaboration with other sectors for all those working in the recreation industry to achieve our goals and improve our communities.
