Thank You Rink Volunteers

February 17, 2021

The WHMCA rink has had one of its best years in recent memory. There were periods on most days of Christmas break and recent weekends where there were 25-35 people enjoying the ice. This was still legal given Covid restrictions limiting numbers to 40 people on the main rink and 18 people on the oval and everyone needing to stay 2 m apart.  Please remember to maintain spacing so we can continue to enjoy the great outdoors!

Cleaning and flooding the rink has been occurring several times per week (sometimes twice per day!). Many thanks to Jarret, Marco, Mike, Ian, Colin and especially Shayne and his parents Gail & Frank for putting in so much work.  Please thank them if you see them working!

A sub-committee has been started to look at fundraising for purchasing a new sweeper.  Getting a new sweeper for next winter is critical since we had to scavenge parts to keep one sweeper functional in early January.  If you are interested in helping please contact Alex Reed at rink@winstonheights.ca.


Winston Heights Mountview 55+ Survey

Your Winston Heights-Mountview Community Association currently has a few programs in place for our 55+ members (book club, learn to programs…). We would like input from our 55+ community members to be able to develop and introduce additional programs for the various age groups that will be well received and attended.

We are also interested in adding some programs that are lead by our 55+ members. Our “learn to” programs is a current example where our 55+ members taught classes on jelly making, pierogi making and Asian cooking. Maybe you are interested in teaching a “learn to” class?

In the past year, with COVID-19, we also learned that having access to online programs may also be of benefit. We need to know how many of our community members have access to technology (cell phone, tablet, laptop, desktop) and if you are comfortable using this technology should we be able to provide online classes.

We need your input. Please take the time to fill in our survey. One Survey per person.

Thank you on behalf of,

Your 55+ Active Corner, committee.
