Attended the South Winnipeg Community Centre Volunteer Appreciation celebration last nite-many many volunteer coaches/convenors/& supporting family & friends were in attendance.

Heartfelt speeches & awards were presented in appreciation for all the time & expertise provided so our children can stay active & healthy in our community.

The South Winnipeg Community Centre has a huge catchment area - an area encompassing the fastest growing area of our City. Hundreds of new families are moving into the Community Centre’s catchment and signing up for soccer, basketball, hockey and more!

Because the area is growing faster than ever anticipated by City planners & elected officials - the three facilities used by South Winnipeg Community Centre are struggling to be able to serve the entire community’s needs (Richmond Kings building/rink on Silverstone, the Ryerson building/rinks by Ryerson School, & the Waverley buildings/rinks on Chancellor)

This lack of recreation space is being addressed-not as soon as we all would like-but is-significant progress has occurred & more is in the works (I’ll post more on progress in coming week) Bridgwater Lakes Community Bridgwater Forest Neighbourhood Association Bridgwater Trails Community South Pointe Residents' Group Prairie Pointe Neighborhood Association Richmond West - Fairfield Park Residents Association

So-these old facilities, lacking in so many features- result in extensive organization-co-ordination-scheduling, re-scheduling & more by volunteers & staff to deliver the programming requirements for our children.

As parents-we live for our children & do whatever it takes to ensure their utmost health and well being. To have OTHER parents dedicate so much time and effort for ALL our children, under challenging conditions- is indeed something to be thankful for.

Thank you to all the volunteers AND amazing staff @ South Winnipeg CC for all you do to strengthen, grow & support our children. Thanks Nicole Bourgouin Carnegie Re-Elect Julie Fisher 2018 Art/Murray/Chuck/Craig/Jamie & so many more! It was a wonderful evening - the food,entertainment & prizes!

thank you thank you for working so hard!

(& yes-those new digital signs can’t come soon enough!!)
