President’s Message – February 2014

What a great run of warm weather we are presently having as I write this letter. Hope everyone’s streets have either been cleared or solidified up like ours has, making it a lot easier to get around. We have still been able to continue putting layers of water down on the rink, keeping it decent. A little colder weather prior to the Family skate party on Feb 8th would be nice to prepare the ice. Come by if not to skate to have one of our warm baked potatoes, keeps the hands warm and are tasty.

Some of you may have noticed by we took delivery of our new 2320 John Deere tractor this month. Not a moment to soon as we were able to clear the last big dump of snow without calling in a bobcat and we have started working on getting the parking lot back under control. We will work at getting it totally clear and keep it that
way.

We have a number of functions scheduled for this new
year:

Feb 8 Family Skate
Feb 21 Movie night
Mar 22 Fun Money Casino
(we hold a silent auction that raises money for the centre during this function. If any firms that you work for want to make a donation of a Service/Product it would be appreciated.)

April 13 Kids Easter Party
Aug 8,9,10 4th Annual Slow pitch tournament
Sept 13 Community Clean up

We saw in the last newsletter that the Droos have started a year round bottle drive. If you wish to donate your bottles to the kids drop them off at the centre. We will have also found out more info about the proposed skatepark by the time you read this at one of the three open houses being put on by the city.

We have been approved for a few more grants thanks
to Wanda again, Great Job Girl!!! Over the next number
of months we will be doing work to the centre as part
of our life cycle requirements. Just a short letter this
month, see you all soon at the Skate Party, one of our
other functions or around the centre.

Sincerely
Kim
