A message from your community league President

Sometimes the benefit outweighs the risk and this is the chance I am taking when I list and thank all the volunteers who helped make the Annual Family BBQ at Lessard the huge success that it was on June 15th.  So here it goes.  Without the following people who donated their time and energy the day would not have been nearly as much fun, THANK-YOU TO:  Marnie, Tyler, Penny, Lucille, Rob T, Rob B, Bill, Robin, Margaret, Chris, Tricia, Sandra, Colin, Holly, Reid, Jacob, Garren, Kylee, Aimee, Richard, MJ, Dennis, and Chloe.  Thank you all so much!!!

After very nervously watching the weather for 10 days before the BBQ I was so grateful when, on Saturday morning,  I walked into the COOP to pick up all the BBQ supplies under ominous-looking rain clouds to and out to beautiful sunshine and blue sky!  Thank-you Lord!!  Thank-you also to the Hawkstone COOP and Callingwood M&M for giving the community League a discount on the BBQ supplies and food.  Thank-you to Beulah Alliance Church for providing, free of charge, the outdoor games, shade tents, stocked popcorn and snow cone machines, small bouncy castle and many other treasures that added to the carnival atmosphere!  One volunteer remarked, β€œIt was so much fun seeing the faces of kids when you told them that the popcorn and snow cones were free!”  With the conclusion of the Annual Family BBQ I would like to declare Summer Officially Open!!  Have a great one!  Heather Trapp
