Thanks to Dee and Julia for organizing our moonlight skate in January - it was a great success! Here's a message of thanks from the organizers:
Thank you to everyone that showed up for our first
moonlight skate event!
The evening was a huge success, an amazing turn out
and the weather couldn't have been better.
Approx 200 people came along and enjoyed music,
coffee and hot choc, generously supplied by
Starbucks, as well as cookies, marshmallows, door
prizes, glow bracelets and a 50/50 draw that came to
An evening enjoyed by all ages that we hope to repeat
again in 2012.
We couldn't have put this event on without the help
from all our family members, who leaflet dropped in our
neighbourhood during cold weather, collected fire-pits,
and wood, making posters, lifting and carrying, starting
the fires...the amount of behind the scenes work that
went into this wouldnt of been possible without all their
patience and kindness and support.
Huge thanks go to Starbucks for over $200 worth of
beverages, supplied free of charge, and to Calgary
Kids Club who supplied a lucky door prize winner with
a years membership, as well a thanks goes to Wendy
Harinck for all her support, and to Martha and Carol for
fire-pit and fire wood.
This event really brought our community together, it was a
huge amount of fun in spite of the hard work. If there are
any volunteers that would like to help put this event on
next year then please let us know.
Dee & Julia
