Winakwa Community Centre hosted our 4th annual Winter Carnival on Feb 8, 2020. This event is a must attend event. With many indoor and outdoor activities throughout the day for kids and adults there is something for everyone. The highlight is the “Jam Can tournament”. We will continue to refine and improve this event with hopes of growing it each year. I would like to thank our volunteers that helped to make this day a memorable one. Without our volunteer’s events like this would not be possible. Our Community Centre gives our kids and adults a fun safe place to grow and be part of something bigger than themselves. With that in mind our board continues to put on events all year for our community to enjoy. Our winter & summer carnival, pancake breakfast, craft sales and lunch with Santa to name a few. We hope you can come to one or all of these events to enjoy them with us. We always enjoy having the students from WPC and Beliveau come out and volunteer and want to thank them all so much. If you would like to give back some time please give us a call at (204)253-4418. Save the date for our summer carnival! We are looking to amalgamate the carnival with our soccer jamboree at the end of June. We are looking forward to all the spring and summer activities this coming year. Hope to see you on the pitch and diamonds in 2020. It is going to be the best year yet.
I have now had the pleasure of being the facility manager here at the Winakwa community center since May 2019. What an amazing experience and opportunity it has been for myself, wife Michele and three kids thus far and I haven’t even been tenured a full year. In my brief time here, I have bared witness to some of the fantastic community events held here at the Winakwa C.C. Events like the Summer Carnival at the end of June, Lunch with Santa and New year’s pancake breakfast are always a big hit. As I write this I would be lying if I didn’t say I was excited for the upcoming Winter carnival in February. I was also extremely lucky to inherit an amazing staff here at Winakwa- from the people you see to the unheralded behind the scenes board members and volunteers. I want to publicly thank all my staff: Melissa, Jeff, Rob, Shelley, Tye, Andrew, Brayden, Mike and Joseph. You guys have all made my transition here easy. Your tireless efforts do not go unnoticed and I know the community appreciates all you do and the extra care you give to the building and grounds. Winakwa truly is a first-class club and I’m looking forward to being a part of it and this community for years to come.
