Jackrabbits is a familyoriented program, geared to
those looking for a low-key
introduction to the game.
The Jackrabbits program
uses a variety of drills, relay
games, activities and scrimmage hockey games to
introduce children to skating
and hockey. Parents are encouraged to actively participate and come out onto the
ice with their children (laced
up, of course). Score is not
kept at Jackrabbits hockey.

Wildwood Fall Canvass 2010
SHOW YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT
FOR WINNIPEG’S GREATEST LITTLE
A GOOD INVESTMENT FOR ALL
RESIDENTS TO MAKE!
We all know that Wildwood is a unique and wonderful place to reside. To live in close
proximity to an active community centre where we have easy access to groomed ski
trails, skating rinks, toboggan slides and a building that can be used for community
events, as well as rented reasonably for individual gatherings contributes to the quality of life we enjoy. How many communities do you know in Winnipeg that have their
own monthly newsletters and community telephone directories? The Wild and Woodsy
and the phone book keep us informed and connected. Your donations go to support
all of these amenities. Our community centre is an asset to residents and an attractive
feature to anyone considering purchasing in Wildwood Park. Its active presence is also
good for our property values.
This has been a great year of support from volunteers, but our community centre
needs financial support as well as the generous donations of time so many of you give.
This year our goal is for 100% household participation. A suggested donation is $50.
Although everyone may not be able to give that amount, it is hoped that each household can give something. Collectively, we can make a difference.
If you have suggestions for improvements to the community centre, please come to
a regular monthly meeting and speak up or join the team of dedicated volunteers who
help with programming and management of your club! Wildwood is one of the most
admired neighbourhoods in the City of Winnipeg. We are renowned for our strong
sense of community and volunteerism, but we have also faced times when the City of
Winnipeg has considered closing what has become the symbol of our neighbourhood
spirit. Please be generous with your support.
Section reps/canvassers will contact each household during the month of October. Donations
received after Nov. 30, 2010 will be considered as donations for the next fiscal year (2011).
Cheques are payable to “Wildwood Community Centre”.
