We regret to say that the Girls on the Move program is cancelled for the winter session due to a lack of available instructor. We hope to bring it back for the Fall 2015 session.
Other programs can be found here and registration is underway!

Our area needs a new volunteer for Soccer Coordinator. Duties include:
- Collecting registration forms and fees and providing these to Saskatoon Youth Soccer
- Recruiting parent coaches
- Distributing equipment and uniforms
- Attending Community Association meetings
- Approximately 10-15 hours per month in April and September, plus 1-3 hours per month outside of “gearing up” months.
The previous Soccer Coordinator will provide transition for this position. Without a new Soccer Coordinator, there will be no spring outdoor soccer offered. If you would like to see this program continue, please consider stepping forward to help. Email email@example.com for more information.
There has been some interest in creating a community garden in our neighbourhood. Proposals are due December 1st for gardens for next year – that’s pretty short notice, but if there are people out there very interested in getting things moving, the forms are not too complicated. A location (possibly Henry Kelsey Park) and a layout are the basic requirements.
Want to see this happen? Contact us! Email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll put you in touch with our Member-at-Large Diane that wants to get things moving.
If you are in Hudson Bay Park, take a look at the proposed traffic plan here: http://shapingsaskatoon.ca/discussions/hudson-bay-park-neighbourhood-traffic-review-1
If you missed the recent meeting, the City will welcome comments until the end of November, and then the proposals will start moving through City Council for adoption.
This month’s Community Association meeting is on Thursday, October 30th at 7pm in the library at Mayfair School.
Homemade baking for sale! If you’d like to buy some baking and help support the community’s Hockey Day in Canada event in February, we have a variety of tasty treats made by Community Association volunteers. Chocolate fudge is packaged in 10-piece bags for $5/bag, and there is a gift box with 30 pieces as well. Ready to be eaten or can be stored in the fridge. There is also an assortment of cookies (chocolate chip, oatmeal chocolate chip, double chocolate, and ginger) and apple cinnamon muffins if anyone is interested – they will be available at the Community Association Meeting at Mayfair School library on Thursday at 7 pm. Everyone welcome!
The money raised from the bake sale will be used for hot chocolate and hot dogs at the Henry Kelsey Rink for community kids in February. The kids appreciate the community support!
