Volunteer Spotlight – Dave


2013 agm dave newton

The Community Association is very thankful Dave Newton has been volunteering in the community for 14 years. When he first joined, it was to fill the role of Soccer Coordinator for 10 years. He coached when his kids were young and playing soccer, and then stayed on as the community’s soccer coordinator even after his own kids aged out of community-level soccer. In addition, for the past 4 years, he’s been a volunteer Member At Large on the board and is always around to help out at various community events.

Below is a favourite community association photo we have from when Dave was helping at a community BBQ in the park. If you know Dave or recognize him out in the neighbourhood, be sure to say hi and let him know you read about him in the community news.

Thank you for being such a strong and long-time supporter in the community, Dave.

New community rink being built by neighbourhood volunteers

WOW! Look at the progress made by volunteers building the community a new rink this weekend!
Just look what can be done when people in the neighbourhood get together for a good cause!
A few volunteers age 16+ are needed for Saturday the 17th as well, especially to carry boards from the middle of the rink where they are cut (see last photo), to the people installing them at the edge. If you can carry a couple of boards at a time back and forth, you can be a huge help; the people installing the boards can then focus on what they are doing instead of having to go back and forth carrying boards.
* A few volunteers are needed throughout the day, but a couple of helpers/board carriers would be greatly appreciated close to noon or just after lunch, when the early-morning volunteers are starting to tire out.
** If you have a drill and a #2 square (Robertson) drill bit to help out, please bring it along.
*** If you plan to be there on Saturday to help, please send a note to rink coordinator Janet at for more details or to say you can help.
Just think, only a few weeks ago there were neighbourhood volunteers helping tear down the rink – a lot of work made easier by everyone who showed up to help, thank you!

HELP NEEDED! Adults needed to help with outdoor community rink demolition on Saturday, July 20

DO YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF SOMETHING BIG IN THE COMMUNITY, helping bring a new outdoor rink to the community?

So much going on this summer!  The community’s outdoor rink is going to be torn down by volunteers in the neighbourhood on Saturday, July 20 starting at 9 am, and the new rink will start being built by volunteers in August.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!

CAN YOU HELP? Calling all ADULT RESIDENTS who can help in big or small ways (and might enjoy demolishing something without getting in trouble for it).

Note: Understandably, for safety reasons and legalities, the demolition day is for adults only and no youth will be allowed on site.

* If you can help, please contact volunteer rink coordinator Janet as soon as possible at or (306)384-9867 so she and Matt know who will be helping them – it’s important to know ahead of time that there will be others there to help.

From Janet and Matt:
1) We have met our fundraising goal of $20,000 and plan to tear down the existing structure on Saturday July 20 starting at 9 am. We will be working Sunday too if needed.
2) We are in need of ADULT VOLUNTEERS to assist us with this process. Come for an hour or come for the day!
3) We need people to help with RIPPING OUT NAILS AND SCREWS and and putting the old boards in the Loraas bin.
4) UPDATE: Bring the following if you can: hammer for removing nails from boards, cordless drill to remove screws from boards, maybe a pry bar to help separate boards. They hope to have a few extra of these tools on hand, but would appreciate if people bring their own if possible. If you can’t manage a tool, you can help carry boards to the Loraas bin that will be on site.
5) Volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes/boots and appropriate clothing (pants and shirts – no muscle shirts, tank tops or topless folks for safety reasons).
6) IMPORTANT NOTE: Understandably, for safety reasons and legalities, the demolition day is for adults only and no youth will be allowed on site.

Please contact Janet at or (306)384-9867 to let her and Matt know you can help, or to find out more about what kind of help is needed – thank you.

Thank you to volunteers with trucks at the 6th annual Community Clean-up!

COMMMUNITY SUPPORT NEWS – local residents help make it all possible!

Many thanks go out to the following people for providing and driving trucks to assist in the recent May 25th annual Community Clean-up Event:

* Neighbourhood resident and community association board member-at-large, Diane West, with P. Machibroda Engineering

* Neighbourhood resident, Adrian Salahub, with Contour Developments

* Neighbourhood resident and community association board member-at-large, Dave Newton

If you know Diane, Adrian or Dave, please say hello and thank them the next time you see them. These folks spent their Saturday morning using their trucks in the alleys to pick up garbage, and also drove to spots where other volunteers had gathered and helped them load and unload trash. The clean-up event cannot happen without volunteers like them who offer to drive their trucks.

We couldn’t have done it without their help, thank you so much!

Thank you to all volunteers at the 6th annual Community Clean-up Event!

Thank you to all the amazing volunteers on Saturday who showed up for the clean-up event and picnic – it was fantastic to see familiar faces and new ones and the cool, damp weather did not dampen volunteers’ spirit!

We had a great turnout of about 65 volunteers, and you can see a few photos below of some of the day’s helpers along with much of the waste collected.

The event was held at the A.H. Browne Recreation Park along the 1600 Block of Ave F. North in Mayfair. At this location, the 30 cubic yard roll-off bin was emptied 2 times in total with waste.

The amount of waste removed that day from the neighbourhoods was 1,840kg’s.

The combined load of metal diverted for recycling was 460Kg’s (combined from the Caswell Hill clean-up day and our neighbourhoods).

20 tires were collected and taken to A1 tire for recycling.

2 large pails of hazardous waste were collected along with a large number of batteries; these will be properly disposed of by our contractor Quantum Murray.

Some needles were also collected and properly disposed of.

On behalf of the community, many thanks, thumbs up and smiles to all the volunteers who helped make the clean-up event possible. As a completely volunteer-run event, it’s wonderful to see how much can be done when everyone gets together. We couldn’t do it without you and are glad we didn’t have to!
