The Old Arena and Rec Center in Thompson

The old Rec Center. The old rec center was in between the high school and the C.A. Nesbitt arena. In 1981 there were three racquet ball courts. Bob Moen, a friend of mine, was an excellent player. In the early seventies there were the rubber lined above ground pools where I took Red Cross swimming lessons. I can still smell those pools. I had a few high school gym classes in the rec center. I remember passing through the rec center to get to the arena lunch cafeteria to mostly eat pizza pops. When was the rec center started? Who hung out at the rec center? When did it get rebuilt?

The place where the old arena and rec center came from…Bird Manitoba
