TODAY IS THE KNIGHT OF CELEBRATION - RAIN OR SHINE !!!
This year's annual Knight of Celebration will take place on Friday, May 25th. Make sure to plan on attending...there will be LOTS of fun for the entire family. The event begins at 5:30 pm with awards, dinner will be at 6 pm along with games and activities, and finishes with Fireworks at dusk.
Danny's Whole Hog will once again be supplying the food (there will be a non-Pork alternative available). Tickets for the meal are only $6 each and can be purchased at the door. In the hall we also have some FANTASTIC prizes available to be won. Tickets for these are $5 per card (25 chances each), and you do not need to be in attendance to win. Draws will take place at 9 pm. Proceeds from these tickets will go towards the building fund for our Accessible Play Structure.
In addition to the great food, there will be bouncers, face painters, balloon artist, a petting zoo and old fashioned races and candy scramble outside for the kids and youth that attend. In addition to all of this, we will have a special performance by the Dakota Collegiate Pep Band! There is no charge for any of these activities.
We hope to see you all there...spread the word!
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".
