” It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. ” – Anne Frank

We are seeing so much good in our neighbourhood and throughout the city, so many offers of help and simple acts of kindness. Sending out warm wishes to all of you in the neighbourhoods of Hudson Bay Park, Mayfair and Kelsey Woodlawn.

Do you want to be a volunteer for delivering groceries to people unable to shop?

A number of people in the city are volunteering to shop for and deliver groceries to city residents unable to go out at this time.  If you’d like to be part of the volunteer group, there is a Facebook page, see Facebook link below for more information.

The Community Association is sharing information during the current pandemic.

We can do this.

We can do this. A strong community looks out for others, and in challenging times, it’s important to take care of ourselves but also remember to check in on others even if we don’t know them well.

– Someone might not be able to get out to get their groceries and we could grab something for them and drop if off at their door, or we might make their day simply by asking if they’re doing okay.
– Another person might be the main caregiver for a family member who is unwell or be caring for young children without any help, and helping shovel or running a short errand for them could be the difference in their day.
– Someone might be an anxious person or dealing with depression, and a neighbour reaching out to them in some small way could help them get through another day.
– A simple “hi” as you walk past and small talk about the weather might be enough for someone to feel some things can still be fairly normal despite the current situation.

Go for a walk if you can, or sit in the back yard and get some fresh air. Go tobogganing or cross country skiing. Put on some music you like. Play cards or board games. Visit a neighbourhood Little Library / book exhange while the libraries are closed, call or text a friend or relative. Reach out and stay connected to others.

Wishing everyone a safe, healthy and manageable week.

Our first priority is your wellbeing and health safety.  With the confirmation of the first case of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Saskatchewan, the school divisions are taking proactive measures to prevent spread of the illness and all school bookings are cancelled until April 19; our community is supporting this decision.

All indoor programs are cancelled, we are assessing the situation and further details will be made available as soon as possible

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

HELPERS + TRUCKS NEEDED – CAN YOU HELP?
We need volunteers to help at the annual spring clean-up event (date to be decided soon, the event usually happens in late May or early June) and are specifically looking for a couple of people with trucks that they could drive in alleys to help other volunteers.

We’ll soon be advertising for the following positions which will open up in autumn 2020 –
1) 2 Indoor Coordinators (volunteer board members) – 2 people work together to decide which indoor programs for kids and adults will happen, arrange for instructors, book school gyms for the programs using the school board’s online system; attend monthly meetings except for December and summer – more details to come later this month
2) Rink Maintence (not a board member position) – to prepare the rink by flooding it at the start of winter, and maintain the rink throughout winter as needed. An honorarium is provided. Does not require attendance at monthly board meetings. More details to follow later this month.

AT THE MEETING
You can come to the meeting just for information and to see what’s been going on and what’s coming up, or come out to express interest in being on the board of volunteers. Kids are always welcome at meetings if you need to bring them along, and if you decide to join and be a voting board member, childcare can be
provided if you request it ahead of time.
