BOOKING COMMUNITY CENTER and ACCESS CODES TO THE CENTER
Bookings are being taken by Kellie Saarloos at 886-2886 to hold family events or other uses at th Center. Our objective is to have the center open, accessible and welcoming for community use. This spring we installed a keypad lock system at the Center. This lock system has the capacity to track when specific key codes are used to open the door. The objective of installing this lock syst was to replace the need for keys to be copied and signed out specifically for those that wanted to use the exercise equipment at the Center (there never seemed to be enough keys). So we are encouraging any community members who wish to have access to the exercise equipment on a fir come first serve basis, that they contact Kellie and she will get you to sign out an access number that is attributed to the person and can be tracked by the lock system when used. We have added additional security lighting for the door so as people can get easy access.

EXERCISE EQUIPMENT — TWO TREADMILLS AND TWO RECUMBENT BICYCLES
Available for use on a first come first serve basis during the day or evenings. There is no cost for use. A key code can be obtained from Kellie Saarloos by contacting her at 886-2886 and signing a code, then you can come and go as you please.

 
Coming Events Highlights

HALLOWEEN PARTY AT THE CENTER, SATURDAY Oct 31st, 6:00 PM
The Halloween Party at the Center has always being a great success, we look forward to this year’s event. It is the community tradition that children do not trick or treat from house to house on Halloween night. Instead, people are encouraged to drop off their treats at the Center and on Halloween eve children in the community are treated to a party and treat distribution. Treats can be dropped off at the Center during the day or for even more fun come and drop your treats off at the party itself. Bring your carved pumpkins to the hall for the great pumpkin contest. There will be activities for the children . Reminder to all residents that treats can be dropped to the hall any time during that day for distribution at the party. If you have any questions or want to provide support for the center set up or party please contact Kellie Saarloos at 886-2886.
