The new Sports and Recreation council in Cranbrook is meeting this week.
If successful the council will serve to promote cooperation between the various sports and athletic organizations in Cranbrook.
The first meeting for the council will be this Wednesday at the Heritage Inn at 7 AM.
Russ Sheppard, one of the group’s organizers, says the first meeting will be mostly about establishing introductions and potentially a mission statement.
“It’s going to be kind of organic on how this process works,” Sheppard says. “It’s the initial meeting to see the interest and see what we’re going to do. We might possibly work towards creating a broad mission statement, But at lest we’ll have gotten the ball rolling.”
Sheppard says the ultimate purpose of the council is to increase communication from groups that almost never communicate with one another.
