Our little community of Wakefield has just finished the construction of a fantastic new community centre. Now it is time to finish the grounds with a professionally design skate park and sports pad. The goal is to build a 4000 sq.ft. skate park and a 4000 sq.ft. multi-season, multi-purpose sports pad. You can help make this come true by voting in the Aviva Community Fund contest. All you need to do is give us one vote per day from the 1st of Oct to the 15th of Oct. at this link. http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf13316
You can also “like” the Wakefield Recreation Association facebook page https://www.facebook.com/WakefieldRecreationAssociation or the Wakefield Activities for Youth facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Wakefield.Activities.for.Youth for quick links to vote.
You can read more about the project here: https://wakefieldrecreationassociation.wordpress.com/the-rink/
You can also print out the the flooring PDF, cut them and hand them out to your clients, staff, students, just to name a few.
Canada Day Time…during the St-Jean Baptiste weekend…
The Wakefield Recreation Association will be at the
Info Wakefield Cabin, ACROSS FROM the farmer’s market this Saturday AM.
We will answer your Canada Day questions, recruit more volunteers and sell
our infamous Wakefield Canada Day Mugs.
See you there Saturday.
A little something like this would be great for our skate park!
RDS was at the Community Centre yesterday to do a follow-up on the Wakefield Community Centre – winner of the 2010 Kraft Celebration Tour.
They are asking for 2 pictures of kids skating/playing on the Wakefield Rink (last winter pics).
Unfortunately, I do not have any and I am looking for 2 pictures if you have any.
WRA will award a Wakefield Mug (available at your Community Centre for $5 by the way) to the best pic provided.
Please email the pics to: email@example.com before Sunday.
There is a bit more than 2 weeks left if you want to nominate your community project.
Projects from Wakefield will quite likely not be chosen as finalist, but I believe community projects outside
of Wakefield would be considered. Go to: http://www.tourneedecelebrationkraft.ca/ for info.
You will notice a very cool picture of the Wakefield Tour if you acces the french site
