President’s message

Winakwa Community Centre hosted our 2nd annual Winter Carnival on Feb 10, 2018. This event is becoming a must attend event that everyone is talking about. Our event started with a pancake breakfast with many activities thought out the day for kids and adults. The highlight is the “Jam Can tournament”. “Jam Can” is a fun outdoor curling tournament where we use concrete curling rocks. The evening consisted of kids watching movies and playing video games, lots of laughter, bonfire, beer gardens and a laid back atmosphere. We ended this event with a social, which included a live local band. We will continue to refine and improve this event with hopes of growing bigger every year. I would like to thank our volunteers that helped to make this day a great one. Without our volunteers events like this would not be possible.

I’m happy to announce that we received 2 grants in the fall totaling $75,000 to start our equipment room renovation. We are starting to look at the project earlier this year and hope to phase this project and have it completed within 1.5 years.

If you are looking to join our fun filled board and want to make a difference in your community we are currently looking for some great people to fill our open positions. If you are interested please contact me at guyjpoirier76@gmail.com so I can provide you with more information.

Our Community Centre gives our kids and adults a fun safe place to grow and be part of something bigger then themselves. Being part of this community is such a rewarding part of my family’s life and it is something to be proud of. If you have never dropped in, or don’t know what a Community Centre is, I invite you to see all we have to offer for you and your family.

Save the date for our Summer Carnival!!! Our goal is to provide lots of free activities for our growing community.

Drop-in for organized and non-organized activities such as crafts, sports, swimming, and outings or just come and hang out with your friends.
