Provide your feedback for your chance to win $50 towards a recreation program

The Town of St. Marys wants to ensure all St. Marys residents who wish to participate in recreation programs, have the means to do so.

They are asking residents to participate in a short survey to help them determine any barriers residents are facing that may prevent them from participating in recreational programs available to adults and older adults in the community.

The survey is open to residents 18 years of age and older and takes only two to four minutes to complete. Everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a contest to win a $50 credit towards a 2021 recreation program of their choosing.

Surveys must be completed by August 24, 2021 in order to be entered into the contest.

“The pandemic has caused some major changes in some resident’s physical, mental and financial well-being.” says Stephanie Ische, Director of Community Services. “Recreation programs are a very important part of mental and physical wellness. We want to better understand any barriers that residents are facing so we can create assistance programs to help minimize those barriers.”

The survey can be accessed in the following ways:
