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.
Hello Winakwa family and friends, I just wanted to take a few moments to write to you all and let you know what is happening here at Winakwa C.C. We have come out of a very trying couple of years with what I hope will be better days ahead. This community continued to thrive during the pandemic and I’m pleased to say we want to continue with that momentum. I’m a firm believer that you can really tell how strong your community is when the chips are down and your back is against the wall. Windsor Park made me proud to be a resident with its response to those difficult times. #WindsorParkHasHeart
Programs are ever changing but the community's favorites like Slo pitch, dance and floor hockey remain. Others like soccer had another successful season and will see exciting new growth and development in the spring of 2023! A long standing tradition of baseball here at Winakwa sadly saw a pause this past summer as we are searching for a convenor to continue the program. Please let me know if you have any interest in helping us out with that position. If your weekdays are free and you are looking for a fun way to keep moving and physical, why not give pickleball a try? It’s affordable and an absolute blast to play. The community garden continues to be a real star here at the club. All boxes were again spoken for and even more fruit trees have been added for the community. Within the next few years we may be able to start reaping those sweet rewards.
The club itself has gone through a few physical changes over the last couple of years. With upgrades to interior and exterior LED lighting, new LED lights on our two hockey rinks and parking not to mention they now have timers! Woohoo! Don’t forget we still have the off leash dog run in rink #1 (closest to the parking lot) during the spring and summer months. Not to be outdone but a couple of small renovations inside the rooms have also given our regular users like dance and Hercules weight lifting ways to better serve their groups. We also have very exciting future plans to create an amazing and much needed outdoor experience for the community that will see all our amenities come together. These are indeed very exciting times here at Winakwa.
