Membership Drive Update
Thank you to all our families who have purchased or renewed their memberships. Your support is greatly appreciated. In order to meet our fundraising goal, we need 333 families to purchase/renew their membership. We continue to accept payment via cash, cheque or credit card. The annual membership is $45 for the year (which breaks down to only 86 cents per week!) and expires at the end of April 2018. For more information, please talk to any staff at the Family Centre.
Please be aware that the gravel is very slippery. We are working on finding a solution to this problem. In the meantime, if any family member can donate some time to shove/sweep the gravel back in its place, please let us know. We have a shovel and some brooms readily available in the bike shed. As well, parents and caregivers should monitor/prevent the children dumping the gravel on the blue surface, wooden benches and walkway.
