Winakwa CC’s Board continues to work towards creating more community activities. We are striving to have more annual events in which every member of our community can enjoy and have that feeling of what being part of this community is all about. We ended the year with what we hope to be our Annual New Year’s Eve Pancake Breakfast from 8-10:30 am and was followed by activities for all ages on the ice rink and gym until 1:30pm. It was a fun event that ended with Free Hot Chocolate for all those in attendance.
Winakwa’s next event was our Winter Carnival on Feb 11, 2017. This event started with a pancake breakfast sponsored by McMunn & Yates and was followed by a “Jam Can tournament”. “Jam Can” is a fun outdoor curling tournament where we use cans instead of curling rocks. We began with our community kids in the afternoon and then another tournament for adults in the evening. The evening consisted of kids watching movies, lots of laughter, bonfire, beer gardens and a laid back atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. We will continue to refine this event with hopes of it growing bigger every year.
We are currently in the planning stages of our Summer Carnival….stay tuned. Everyone is welcome to join any of these events or activities. We have been posting information on our Facebook, community email list and newsletter. For more up to date events visit our Facebook account and like it. You can also ask our staff at the club for details on any upcoming events.
It continues to be my honor to lead and connect our community. I could not do it without all our great board members, volunteers and club staff.
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. Vice President, Website & Publicity, Basketball Convener are just to a few positions needing to be filled. If you are interested please contact me at email@example.com so I can provide you with more information.
Looking forward for our Summer Carnival and a warm spring and summer.
Keeping everyone in the community informed of what is going on at Winakwa Community Centre is a big undertaking and we need to do a better job at this task, spreading the word. Getting the information to our residents when Fall and Spring registration take place or special events for all families to enjoy. We advertise twice a year through our newsletter that you are reading, permanent reader board in our parking lot, schools, mass e-mails, website and most recent our facebook page. If you have any suggestions on advertising or would like to be added to our e-mail distribution list, please contact Ashtyn at firstname.lastname@example.org
Winakwa experimented with the option of online registration this past fall 2016. Keeping up with new technology and for the convenience of some we are once again having our Spring 2017 registration online and can be found on our website www.winakwacc.ca If you’re the type that would rather have the personal one on one service we have you covered, two dates March 7th and 9th both 6pm – 8pm.
Winakwa is actively looking for businesses to advertise in our extremely busy Gymnasium. If you know of anyone that might be interested, please have them contact myself Dino Moran at 204-253-4418.
