President’s message

It’s been a year since we implemented our online registration system. With a few changes made to the system and how we register, this gave us minimum learning curve with no interruption on how we do our business. The system has increased productivity and efficiency to all aspects of our operation and programing. We will continue to make it user friendly so everyone benefits with these positive changes.

Winakwa CC’s Board continues run activities this Fall/Winter with our Annual Craft sale, New Year’s Eve Pancake Breakfast followed by our Winter Carnival.

The Winter Carnival will be held on Feb 10, 2018.  This event features a pancake breakfast, followed by a “Jam Can tournament”.  “Jam Can” is a fun outdoor curling tournament where we use concrete rocks instead of regular curling rocks.  There will be a curling game and activities for the kids in the afternoon and the “Jam Can” tournament for adults in the evening. The evening consists of kids watching movies, lots of laughter, a 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 and include sponsorship to help support this event and our club, making it the best it can be. We are looking forward to our Winter Carnival, as last year was a blast with 12 curling teams and hundreds attending all events all day long.

We are continuing to move forward with updating our old equipment room to make one great room for our sports and programs. We had a few set backs along the way but are looking to apply for grants this fall.

We hope that our community stays warm this season and enjoys all of the winter activities that Winnipeg has to offer.

Managers Message

Hope everyone enjoyed some well deserved warm weather as we walked, biked, and spent time with family, friends, and neighbours.  One special event this summer was Canada’s 150th birthday celebration – hope everyone had time to enjoy and reflect on this special event.

Winakwa’s family fun day held August 19th was a fun filled day. Started with a pancake breakfast followed by face painting, bouncers, kids dance, clowns, dunk tank, movie, vendor sale, and games for all ages. I personally would like to thank everyone in attendance and a special thank you to all the volunteers and our sponsors Maple Leaf Foods, Alpha Lodge # 92, Fit Kids Healthy kids and B.J’s Music.

Have you ever thought of being part of something bigger than yourself? How about wanting to make a difference in the community that you live in? If you answered yes to the two questions, then on Wednesday, Sept 20th 7:00pm stop in at Winakwa Community Centre, we will be hosting our annual AGM. Members will be on hand to talk about different positions you could join if interested. We hope to see a lot of you there and maybe even add a few new faces to the Centre.
