REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
Throughout the year we have had several events that are planned by our Special Events Directors and committees that have not been well attended. We thought that we would ask the community what type of events we could do in order to get people back to the community centre again. Please take 2 minutes of your time to answer a short 9 question survey about programming and volunteering here at NGCC. We appreciate your feedback!
NGCC OUTDOOR RINKS (ODR'S)
ODR's at both sites are open! Rink hours at the Norberry site (Molgat Ave) are 9 am to 10 pm during the week and 9 am to 5 pm on the weekends, but may stay open longer if we have staff on site.
The Glenlee site (Worthington Ave) is open from 5 pm to 9:45 pm Monday to Friday and 9 am to 4:45 pm on weekends. PLEASE NOTE that this site will not stay open if the windchill is colder then -30C. During the school break for Christmas, this site will be open at 10 am.
NEW COFFEE PROGRAM AT NGCC
If you have a Keurig coffee machine, we have a new program that can benefit you and NGCC at the same time! Cabby's Coffee has developed a program that will donate $1 per box of K-Cups purchased back to the community centre. And they will deliver the coffee to your home (within the St.Vital/St. Boniface area) to boot! Check out their website here
for more details and to see what types of coffee and tea you can order. Keep in mind that all the K-Cups are recyclable, and Cabby will pick up pods to recycle for you when he drops off your order, so this program is good for the environment as well.
VOLUNTEER SHIFT SIGN-UP INFORMATION
PLEASE NOTE that St. Vital Minor Hockey Association made a last minute decision to reduce the volunteer fee that we charge, so only $30 is available for refund after you do your 3 hour volunteer shift. We ask everyone to PLEASE continue to sign up for shifts even if you don't think it is worthwhile to just get back $30, as our events/services rely on our volunteers. Canteens being open, dances, and Breakfast with Santa will all be in jeopardy if we don't get enough volunteers.
To sign up for your shift(s), please go to SignUp.com
If you need more information, call the office at 204-256-6654.
USED SPORT EQUIPMENT REQUEST
NGCC will be collecting used sports equipment on behalf of 4 First Nations Communities. A Social Worker from our community makes regular trips up north and the people he meets with are very appreciative of any equipment they can aquire to keep the people of their communities active and engaged. At this time they are particularily interested in baseball/softball and soccer equipment, but are willing to take anything.
The 4 communities are: Bunibonibee Cree Nation (Oxford House), Manto Sipi Cree Nation, Gods Lake First Nation and Chemawawin Cree Nation.
We will have a collection bin set up just inside the main doors at the Norberry site on Molgat Ave.
Every year, our Volunteer coaches run into parents that are not satisfied with how their child is being coached. Here is a document that all parents (and coaches too) should read to remind themselves to keep things in perspective. Happy reading
A new article titled "Are Great Coaches Becoming an Endangered Species?" is also very good and worth a read...find it here.
And yet another good article titled "your kid and my kid are not making the pros".
