The First Annual Fall Supper and AGM that took place on October 18 was a huge success for the SNPCA! A great number of community members were in attendance and enjoyed a fabulous meal prepared by Heart and Soul catering. The younger community members spent the night running out their energy in the ECF’s gym, while adults visited with other members, both old and new. We are especially grateful to those that stuck around for the AGM and helped bring in our new council members as well as passing the motion that requires all coaches and volunteers working with child to have a criminal records check. We are sad to have Elizabeth Ford step down as President since she has been such an important member of the council for years, but she will stay on to advise new President Shane Roppel who will no doubt be a perfect fit!
As of October 15th the #6 Wilson/Preston bus no longer serves South Nutana Park students with access to Aden Bowman Collegiate.

Community members would like to remind everyone that if the service is not used it runs the risk of being cancelled.
Adelaide Park/Churchill Community Association is hosting a series of 3 informational sessions geared toward parents and their children in grades 5 to 8.

Come one and all to the First Annual Fall Supper and AGM!
The night will begin Thursday October 18th at 6 pm at the ECF High School 2320 Louise Ave. The supper is free for anyone attending and will be catered by South Nutana Park’s own, Heart and Soul Catering. This a great opportunity to meet members of your community and have a chance to voice any suggestions or concerns to the council. The SNPCA has put out a survey that asks residents for constructive suggestions on where we could use extra dollars and each completed survey will be entered in a draw for a night’s stay at one of Saskatoon’s family friendly hotels. There are positions that still need to be filled on the board and anyone interested in learning more about them before committing will have their opportunity. The night will conclude with a brief AGM that will vote on important motions such as having all volunteers and coaches submit to a criminal record check. Drop in and meet your neighbors, help shape the community, and get a FREE meal!
Hello SNPCA residents, just want to take this opportunity to invite anyone from the neighbourhood to join us for our monthly meeting. This is a great opportunity to meet some of your neighbours and have your voice and ideas heard. The meeting is held in the Prince Philip School Library at 7:00pm.
