The Paqtnkek Health Center will be providing pizza following the swim for Paqtnkek community members in the conference room at the Millennium Centre. Our apologies but due to the lack of community members requiring a ride to swim we will NOT be offering the bus to transport community members to swim. We would ask that community members offer their neighbors, friends and family a ride into swim if they are going. Thank you
