Thank you and congratulations!

2019 Snowflake Art Project 5th annual for kids
Thank you for bringing winter cheer to our community!

The 5th annual Snowflake Art Project has wrapped up for another year. Thank you to all the kids and families who made such unique snowflakes together for the recent annual Snowflake Art Project. You’ll be able to see the snowflakes displayed from Dec 17 – Jan 4 in the window of Better Off Duds, 510A 33rd Street West.

CONGRATULATIONS to Desmond B, whose name was chosen in the random draw for kids in Hudson Bay Park, Mayfair and Kelsey Woodlawn.

The best part about today was delivering the prize to Desmond after school – thank you to Lily Yip at the Travelodge Hotel for providing a 1-night stay as a prize.

It was the 5th year for the volunteer Community Association to hold the Snowflake Art Project for kids in our 3 neighbourhoods. Thank you to staff at Mayfair Library for once again providing a friendly place for kids to drop off their snowflakes and even make snowflakes while at the library. Thank you you to Nicola at Better Off Duds for displaying the snowflake art for the kids.

We really appreciate the ongoing support from our community library and local businesses.

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 hkrink@sasktel.net 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:
RUCKUS AT THE RINK News
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 hkrink@sasktel.net 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!

VOLUNTEERS OF ALL AGES IN YOUR COMMUNITY

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!
